Europe/Amsterdam timezone


The European Space Thermal Engineering Workshop, organised by the ESA Thermal Division, will be held on:
Tuesday 10 to Thursday 12 October 2023
at ESA/ESTEC, Noordwijk, the Netherlands.

The event is held live at ESTEC only, not hybrid or on-line!

Aim and scope
The aim of the workshop is:

  • to provide a forum for the exchange of views, experiences, best practices and lessons learned from thermal engineers involved in space missions
  • to promote and facilitate contact between thermal engineers and thermal technologies and tool developers
  • to present recent developments on all aspects related to the thermal engineering domain and to solicit feedback
  • to present new approaches and methodologies (e.g. for thermal design, analysis and verification)

Topics covered include in particular

  • thermal design (for platforms, instruments etc.)  
  • thermal analysis and software tools
  • thermal testing
  • thermal control technologies
  • two-phase heat transport technology
  • thermal technologies and methodologies related to small satellites and CubeSats
  • mapping of thermal results to mechanical models and guidelines for thermo-elastic (for thermal part)
  • Lunar Night Survival

The workshop will consist of presentations only. The working language will be English.
