The mission of the Institute of Space Sciences (ICE) is to contribute to the general advance of the Cosmos studies, helping to improve CSICs scientific and technological capacity, as well as to reinforce the presence of CSIC in the space initiatives, to promote excellence in all the activities related to scientific research and outreach and to articulate the contribution of the CSIC to the "Institut dEstudis Espacials de Catalunya (IEEC)". The ICE was created as an institute in formation in 1999 and acquired its definitive plenary status in January 2008. The activities at the ICE are structured around two scientific departments and an engineering unit: • Astrophysics and Planetary Sciences • Physics and Cosmology • Advanced Engineering Unit These departments are connected because they group the main scientific areas of research, where scientists and engineers work on projects and research fields that may belong to one or several scientific areas. The scientific research groups are: Multi-messenger Approximation to Particle Astro physics Stars, Planets and Meteorites Observational Cosmology Theoretical Physics and Cosmology Nuclear and High Energy Astrophysics Gravitational Astronomy Earth Observation. The Engineering Unit acts as a support unit for researchers in need of technical assistance and manpower for the realization and fulfilment of research projects, ground or even space astronomical instrumentation. Advances in Science and Technology are beginning to be closely linked, consequently allowing innovations at observational levels. In this sense, the Advanced Engineering Unit (AEU) is designed to provide specialized support to the various research lines developing new types of sensors as well as technology to achieve the science of the future. The unit intends to provide the following services to the different research lines: Engineering (sub) systems, RF, digital and optical, Earth and Space instrumentation, Critical software and observation automation, Generation of technical requirements and acceptance of equipment, Project management and support, Management of laboratory infrastructure, Link to the industry
The following is the list of proceedings by scholars from Institute of Space Science that are published in OMICS International journals and conferences.
