This American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics conference offers a forum for GN&C technology discussions with a unique focus on theory and applications in aeronautics and astronautics.

It is part of a four-day AIAA series of conferences: Applied Aerodynamics, Atmospheric Flight Mechanics, Modeling and Simulation Technologies, and Astrodynamics Specialist.

Presentations and discussions cover theoretical advancements and the implementation issues
required for the transition of new technology to operational systems. The 2008 technical program includes sessions in control theory, analysis, and design; spacecraft guidance; navigation; control; aerospace robotics; and many more.

The plenary session on Wednesday morning, August 20, features John Junkins, director of the Center for Mechanics and Control in the department of space engineering at Texas A&M University. He will speak on "Rising Above the Perfect Storm for Dynamical Systems with
High Nonlinearity, Large Uncertainty and High Dimensionality.”

The conference will be held at the Hawaii Convention Center and Hilton Hawaiian Village.
