We are pleased to announce that it is the time of the call for presentations for Workshop on JAXA Astrodynamics and Flight Mechanics. Thanks to your support, this year we will celebrate the 32nd workshop. Due to the COVID-19, we have been forced to hold the symposium online for the past two years, but this year the situation is calming down, and we plan to hold a hybrid symposium that will accept both in-person and online presentations/audiences. Although this will be a somewhat irregular format, we will strive to make the most of the advantages of both online and in-person sessions. After the symposium, we plan to hold a small networking meetup, so if you are able to make it, we hope you will come to JAXA Sagamihara. Please note that we are considering the possibility of shifting the symposium to a fully online event, depending on the situation of the spread of the COVID-19.
As space activities become more developed, the importance of the field of astrodynamics, which includes navigation, guidance and control based on applied mechanics, seems to be increasing. We believe that it is very meaningful for people involved in JAXA's projects to discuss various research issues with people from universities and research institutes, and to explore the application of theories. As active members of astrodynamics community, we would like to have an opportunity to spend time for pure research and technical discussion.
The conference last year was a great success, with 78 presentations and 278 registered participants. This year, too, our first priority is to secure enough time for presentations and discussions with audience; presenters will have 30 minutes per presentation including enough time for questions. In terms of contents, we would like to avoid general discussions such as conceptualization and system description, and focus on fundamental research and technology issues. We also welcome presentations of research and technology that is not yet completed or in progress. We also look forward to the participation of graduate students and young engineers. As a new symposium policy, we will allow the submission of presentation slides instead of the conventional paper format for the post-print collections; we hope that this will reduce the burden on presenters. The workshop will also accept presentations of previously published topics. Although we require all presenters to submit post-printed materials in principle, the authors can limit the content depending on your copyright issues before publication in the symposium's repository. This symposium does not require the transfer of copyright from authors. We hope that international students are willing to apply for this workshop.
The organizing members have been replaced by a new generation two years ago and will continue to make every effort to contribute to the growth and success of the astrodynamics community. We look forward to your continued support and encouragement.

Outline of Symposium|
The interest of this workshop lies in the astrodynamics as an applied physics, providing a good opportunity for discussing academic research and technical issues on space technology.
The working language is English for International Sessions.
The English paper for all the presentations will be collected after the symposium.
