Sponsorship Request



The 35th International Electric Propulsion Conference (IEPC) is scheduled for October 8 – 12, 2017 on the Georgia Institute of Technology campus in Atlanta, Georgia. The IEPC is the premier international forum for spacecraft primes, hardware developers, government researchers, academic scholars, and students in the field of electric propulsion. The IEPC is held every two years and is attended by more than 500 participants with representation from more than 25 countries. The typical program contains more than 350 technical presentations that span from propulsion device physics and development to on-orbit operation and satellite fleet management. The 2017 IEPC will have a rich and diverse technical program featuring the latest developments and research results in the field, as well as a number of informative and educational events, along with technical visits to nearby facilities.


Your sponsorship of the 2017 IEPC would further reflect your organization’s commitment to electric propulsion and help to ensure that the special events of the conference are memorable, informative, and worthy of the occasion. The sponsorship funds will provide support to keep the conference registration fees down and subsidize a large part of the registration of graduate students, thus giving them an opportunity to interact with the EP community and increase their likelihood of joining the field as professionals. In addition to general sponsorship, display booth space is available at a cost of $30/ft2.


On behalf of the 2017 IEPC Organizing Committee, please accept this letter as a formal request for sponsorship of the conference. As a major sponsor of the 2017 IEPC, we will make sure that all appropriate venues and published items (website, posters, abstracts booklets, banners, handouts, etc.) prominently feature the logo of your organization. The check should be made payable to The Georgia Tech Foundation. To facilitate processing, it may be sent to my attention.


Should there be any questions, you can contact me at 404-385-2757 or via e-mail.  More information will be posted on the conference website as we move closer to 2017.
