The Space Congress® proceedings evolved from the meetings held by workers in the space industry located in Cocoa Beach, Florida. People from around the region, many employed by NASA and other affiliates, met to discuss their mutual interest in missile propulsion, spacecraft propellants, the missile programs such as Thor, Atlas, Titan and Polaris, and other topics. The first proceedings were produced in 1962 and by 1963, the organized meeting was called the Space Congress. The meeting is held every year and the proceedings are published to promote the activities of its members who belong to the Canaveral Council of Technical Societies, a vital link between many professional societies and technical groups in Brevard County, Florida.

The 46th Space Congress® conference will be taking place June, 4th - 6th, 2019, with a Golf Tournament on June 7th, 2019. Please check back frequently for updates and more information including the Conference Agenda, Accommodations, and Registration.

A continuation of the Space Congress® Proceedings can be found at the Spaceport Summit site.  The Spaceport Summit began in 2021 and continues the scope and mission of the former Space Congress®.
