Re: [Orekit Developers] 6th International Conference on Astrodynamics Tools and Techniques (ICATT)

The fact they have a track for open source tools is really cool.  What
other open source tools are going to be represented?

We will know when the papers will be selected, in December.

I hope there will be several papers on Orekit. Everyone in the community
can do that. To anyone who use Orekit, please show your appreciation by
proposing Orekit papers at ICATT!

I also guess there will be many papers on GMAT. There will also be a tutorial
on GMAT by Steven Hugues, from NASA/GSFC. He is GMAT project manager and is
also member of the organising committee.

Let's hope we will avoid false open-source tools (for example closed-source
tools based on open-source, there are other tracks for this).

best regards,
