Dear Alumni and Members of the ISU Family,

It is my pleasure to invite you to the 2016 ISU Alumni Conference / Weekend, hosted this year from August 3rd – 6th 2016 in Haifa, Israel at the Technion University! Each year this Alumni event brings together ISU alumni from across the world for a mixture of informative and informal activities. One of the key focuses of these activities is networking. After 28 years the ISU family now includes over 4,000 alumni from ISU’s core programs: The Space Studies Program, Southern Hemisphere Space Studies Program, Master’s Program, and Executive MBA.

ISU Alumni Conference 2016

This year in Haifa you will have the opportunity to meet alumni from all of these different ISU programs. In another ISU intercultural experience, the event schedule has been shifted forward to accommodate the Shabbat. In light of this the program organizers have scheduled a series of optional tours for ISU alumni seeking to explore the cultural and historical history of the area together.

We will once again be hosting a joint career fair and poster session with both the SSP participants and the ISU Alumni. This promises to be a great event for alumni looking for work, hiring, or interested in showing off their latest projects and activities to fellow alumni. On the event website you will find a detailed overview of this very diverse program. Everyone at ISU is looking forward to welcoming you to Haifa!

Walter Peeters, ISU President
