•'s mission is to expedite acquiring and disseminating knowledge, promoting and propagating the paradigm of space based computing.
  • initiative will continuously collect and publish documents, surveys and standardization papers about space based computing, acting as a central facility for all activities around space based computing. It will foster joint publications of the contributing members, organize conferences, workshops and other events and promote the funding of research efforts.
  • In the long term mission aims to canonize multiple facets of existing space based computing solutions and to promote a common reference architecture motivating developers to leverage the potential of this technology. The common reference architecture shall relate space based computing to established standards in distributed computing. In particular, the space based computing paradigm will impact state-of-the-art technologies and their standardization like Coordination, Web Services, Semantic Web, and Business Process Languages.
