Coming to international Organizations, the first mention goes to Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the European Commission, who promptly granted the EC Patronage to the Conference, while ESA, the European Space Agency, confirmed its role of official promoter of ESTEL Conference, together with IEEE (International Electrical and Electronics Engineers) and AESS (Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society, one of the 38 societies of IEEE).
Moreover, the Executive Director of GSA (Galileo System Agency) Carlo Des Dorides, granted the support of the Agency, organizing and patronizing a special session on GNSS (Galileo Navigation Satellite System).

Fleury, Michael Devetsikiotis, Vasily V. Popovich, Nicolas Sklavos, Marco Chiani, Daniele Mortari, Silvano Pupolin, Stephen B. Johnson, Bryan Palaszewski, Alberto Ginesi and Pierangela Samarati.
These few names are just a sample amongst the several academic experts taking part to the event: 71 professionals confirmed their presence in the Technical Program Committee, while Institutions and Area Associations have more than 40 members in the International Steering Committee.
ESTEL Conference Call for Papers gathered so far more than 130 proposed works, and the number is still growing thanks to the technical and scientific contributions of Space Companies taking part to the Conference as sponsors or exhibitors.
More than 50 Companies and 73 Universities, Institutions, Organizations, Associations and Research Center from all over the world registered to the ESTEL Conference so far.
In addition to Papers presentations, exhibiting options, b2b meetings, special sessions, working groups, ESTEL Conference offers to the participants a new and original tool: ESTEL Community, a web portal through which it’s possible to share pieces of information, documents, scientific and technical materials in the different Macro-Areas of which ESTEL is made up. The Community has the aim of encouraging the exchange and sharing of ideas, and promoting contacts and exchanges amongst participants before and after the event. This way ESTEL Community will be a useful instrument to support the workshops and create permanent experts network.
