Gasteig Cultural and Conference Centre in Munich

Conference Overview

The Theatine Church of St. Cajetan, Odeonspatz, Munich

OHB and ESA are delighted to host the 18th bi-annual European Space Mechanisms and Tribology Symposium for 2019 in Germany. It will be held in Munich, Bavaria, and is being organised by OHB.

The symposium will be held at the Gasteig Cultural and Conference Centre in Munich from the 18th-20th September 2019 and welcomes Space mechanism professionals and industry leaders from around the globe.

ESMATS is recognised as the premier vehicle for Mechanisms Engineers, experienced and new recruits, to come together to discuss and celebrate their successes and lessons learnt, with a view to pooling their knowledge for the betterment of this unique community and the European Space industry as a whole.

Held bi-annually, ESMATS alternates in collaboration with its sister event in the USA – The Aerospace Mechanisms Symposium.

Exhibition Area

As with previous years the 2019 symposium will encompass 2 1/2 days of exhibition and conference proceedings in the Gasteig Cultural and Conference Centre’s state-of-the-art auditorium followed by a half day tour of OHB’s manufacturing and test facilities in Munich. The gala dinner will be a Bavarian style banquet.

For those wishing to attend training courses on the Monday and Tuesday prior to the symposium, please view the training section of the website. These courses will be held in the nearby Eurostars Grand Central Hotel and come highly recommended. There are three seprate 2-day traing courses all covering specific aspects of Space Mechanism Design.

The 3 courses are:

  • Space Tribology Course (STC) by ESTL
  • Advanced Mechanisms Design Course (AMDC) by ESA
  • Space Mechanisms Course (SMC) by Launchspace

OHB and ESA look forward to welcoming you to Germany and the OHB facilities.

Who Attends

ESMATS usually attracts over 250 space mechanism designers and engineers, space scientists, equipment suppliers, specialist facility and service suppliers, satellite project and programme managers globally to engage and knowledge-share on key challenges and topics in current and future Space programmes.
