Kibo-ABC Workshop Online 2020 will be held on November 4, 2020.

Last Updated: October 30, 2020

The Kibo-ABC staff is glad to hold an annual meeting of the Kibo-ABC Workshop online on November 4, 2020. Kibo-ABC is a collaborative program established by the Space Environment Utilization Working Group (SEUWG) of APRSAF. It aims to promote ISS/Kibo utilization in the Asia-Pacific region and share and build on the outcomes of "Kibo" utilization. We have had a face-to-face meeting of SEUWG and Kibo-ABC in APRSAF every year, but this year's meeting was cancelled due to COVID-19.

The Kibo-ABC Workshop is open to everyone, members or non-members of Kibo-ABC, and offers rich topics of ongoing activities.

1. Objective

The main objective of "Kibo-ABC Workshop Online 2020" is to gather and share the member's effort and achievement of the Kibo Robot Programming Challenge (Kibo-RPC) and the Asian Herb in Space (AHiS). In addition, some member organizations will report their activities on the ISS/Kibo regarding the bilateral cooperation of micro-g experiments. We hope to develop multilevel cooperative relationships among Kibo-ABC participating organizations and promote Kibo utilization in the Asia-Pacific region.
