Note: Most people at the Conference will be professionals and will wear business suits or dresses when they give their presentations. It is not necessary to wear a suit or a dress; however, a shirt and tie or nice polo shirt with pants for men and a blouse and skirt/pants for women is appropriate. Keep in mind that you will be in front of professionals who are dressed in business attire, and you should strive to be as professional-looking as you can.

Expected Behavior:

Students are expected to behave like professionals for the duration of the conference.

Do NOT have side conversations when a speaker is talking.

All the sessions at the conference are open to anyone and everyone in attendance. It is to your advantage to attend as many of the sessions as you find interesting. It is not alright for you to stay in your room and practice your presentation during the day. Early mornings and late evenings are a better time for practicing.
Please interact with the people present at the ISDC. You are here to learn, make connections, and meet new people from all over the world. Take advantage of this by having business cards available with your contact information on them to pass out to the people you meet, so you do not scramble for a loose paper and pen when the opportunity arises.

Space Settlement Students are expected to fully participate in the NextGen TRACKS sessions.
