In 2009 the International Astronautical Federation will hold the 60th International Astronautical Congress. This will
be an occasion to reflect on the activities of our Federation which was created following discussions during the
first Congress in Paris, France, in 1950.
Since that time the annual International Astronautical Congresses have grown in size, in scope and in stature. The
Federation has also grown from a handful of visionary groups to almost 200 space agencies, companies, research
organisations and professional societies. And our IAF activities have expanded significantly over the years.
We will celebrate the 60th International Astronautical Congress in the beautiful and dynamic city of Daejeon in
the Republic of Korea. This will be our first Congress in Korea. It comes at a time when Korean space activities are
rapidly expanding.
I hope you will join me at the 60th International Astronautical Congress as we meet and exchange information
with colleagues from around the world, learn more about Korean space activities and experience the warm
hospitality of our host city Daejeon.
