Thanks for posting this. I just ordered the poster. I only live 90 minutes from Huntsville. I'm going to try and make this conference.

What is the chance there will be opportunities for autographs from the Astronauts at this event after their panels? Or do they usually decline?

An update on the symposium's website dated December 30 provides the following:
Many of the people presenting at the symposium will be signing the official symposium poster after each panel. Outstanding opportunity to collect signatures from history makers.

Anyone else going? Interested in meeting / crossing paths?

Also, is it just me, one link states Jan 31 and the site link states Feb 1?

The listing on the 31st is for a now-sold out black-tie gala. The Feb. 1-2 event is for the separate technical symposium described by this thread.

Another collectSPACE member and I are planning to attend the event in Huntsville on February 1-2. We would like to meet up with other collectSPACE members. It would be neat to get a portrait of collectSPACE members with an astronaut to post on collectSPACE sightings. Hopefully the astronauts will be willing to sign autographs? Anyone else planning to attend this event? Thank you.
