Scott is in Adelaide, Australia until mid February 2014 leading and teaching at the 4th Southern Hemisphere International Space University session (6 January to 9 February 2014). The five-week course consists of a three-week intensive series of courses about the technical, legal, commercial, and human aspects of space travel. Four workshops that are open to the Adelaide public are led by visiting astronauts and professors, including one about space mineral mining. During the final two weeks of the session the students create a white paper on this year's topic, disaster planning and reaction, that will later be published. To see day-to-day activities of the course, visit the SHSSP Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/isu.shssp

Regular videos will be uploaded to the page showing what the students are doing, what distinguished visitors to the session are saying, and what the view is from Mt. Lofty, a high peak near Adelaide where Scott takes the students to collect GIS data.

One of the main goals of the course is to train future leaders in the space and telecommunications industry, the academic community, and government agencies by giving the students a well-rounded view of the entire spectrum of space studies, giving them experience in how different cultures work toward goals in order to facilitiate future good working relations in the very international field of space study and management, and allowing natural networking to take place. There were 38 students for the 2012-2013 session who were from Nigeria, Spain, Australia, China, and many other countries.

"The Second Disaster, How Can We Better Incorporate Digital and Space Technologies to Improve Disaster Relief Planning and Response" was the title of Dr. Madry's keynote talk at the 5th International Conference on Geoinformation Technologies for Natural Disaster Management (GiT4NDM) held October 9 - 11, 2013 at Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. His talk was on October 9. He also led a workshop later that day titled: "Open Source Hands-on GIS Workshop for Disaster Management Using QGIS and GRASS."
 

At the annual meeting of the IAF, which was held in Beijing, China in September, 2013, Scott Madry, a member of the International Astronautical Federation's Workforce Development and Young Professional Programme Committee, and co-committe member Carol Carnett, led the Emerging Space Leaders Grant Programme. This was the third year that they led the program.

In October 2008 the International Astronautical Federation approved a new initiative to actively engage, inspire and support the next generation of students and young professionals to prepare them to be the future leaders of the international space community.

As part of this initiative the IAF began a new program to provide grants that enable students and young space professionals to participate in IAF activities, in particular the International Astronautical Congress (IAC).

Since 2009, the Youth Grant Programme, now called Emerging Space Leaders Grant Programme (ESL Grants), enables each year students and young professionals between age of 21 and 35 to participate in the IAC, as well as in the UN/IAF Workshop and the Space Generation Congress, both held the week prior to the Congress.

Dr. Madry and Ms. Carnett work with the winners of the program in a one-day workshop, where they assist them in developing their skills in presenting papers at an international scientific congress. This includes critizing each presentation, videoing each for their review, and then attending their papers and providing feedback.

Students and young professionals from countries throughout the world submitted applications to participate in the program. The 20 winners of the 2013 Emerging Space Leaders Grant Programme can be found at:
