Objectives

SEKUW is an international workshop conferred by those countries participating in the Asian Kibo Utilization Workshop in order to provide the latest information from various fields of space research, especially microgravity experiments. The main objective of the workshop is finding potential space experiments to be conducted in the "Kibo" module on the International Space Station. The previous workshop was successfully held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in April 2016, and a feasibility study on several Kibo utilization experiments proposed at that workshop has begun.

The third workshop will be held this year in Bangkok, Thailand. Thailand has participated in past space activities toward realizing Kibo/ISS missions and has a long history of collaboration with Japan. We expect to see new proposals for the advancement of space research as a result of this workshop.

Beneficial and instructive talks will be provided by an experienced JAXA technical team consisting of the life science specialist and exposed experiment expert of Kibo during this workshop.

We sincerely hope that you will actively join our 3rd SEKUW, and look forward to meeting you soon in Bangkok.
