Queen's Space Conference
What is QSC?
With QSC 2024 having taken place this year, our next conference will be in early 2025. The conference will span a weekend, including presentations from speakers, a case competition, a networking fair, a social, and more opportunities to connect with others at the conference. It will take place in Kingston, Ontario.
Professionals from the Space Industry
We bring industry professionals to our conference in order to provide delegates the most informative, inspiring, and memorable conference possible. Seven speakers will talk about their role in the space industry, their contributions, and where we are headed. Past speakers include CEOs, engineers, astrophysicists, astronauts, AI specialists, and more. Check out our speakers page on this site to look at all of our past speakers over the past 12 years!
We provide networking opportunities with our speakers and their respective organizations, as well as with our cosponsors, other students, and all other delegates. There will be a networking showcase with booths set up representing extracurriculars, research opportunities, and space-related companies at our conference.
QSC is about sparking thought and idea-generation, connecting our delegates with those who can launch them towards their goals, and spreading education and love for space. QSC is an opportunity to learn, grow, and connect meaningfully. Explore your passions and interests at the Queen's Space Conference.
Frequently Asked Questions
I have a question that isn't listed here. Who do I ask?
How do I buy tickets?
QSC 2024 took place in February of this year, and QSC 2025 are not for sale yet. Check back in fall 2024 for QSC 2025 tickets!
Where is the conference located?
The conference is located in Kingston, Ontario! While the exact location will be released in fall 2024, it will be somewhere near the downtown Kingston area, and relatively close to the university.
Do you have to be a Queen’s student to come to the conference?
No, you do not! Students from everywhere are welcome and encouraged to come to the Queen’s Space Conference.
What is a case competition?
Case competitions are case studies of tangible, real world scenarios. Delegates will be placed into groups that will work together on solving a proposed issue/problem. Within an allocated time frame, delegates will strive to develop a solution or plan with their team, followed by a presentation at the conference. Case competitions are a fun way to exercise your mind and problem solving abilities while working with other like-minded people, while also competing against other groups. Past case comps have covered topics such as cleaning up space debris, mining asteroids, and more. Some case competitions from QSC 2024 will be posted on the website before QSC 2025, so delegates can get an understanding of what exactly it is!
