The days of this society are numbered. Its reasons and its merits have been weighed in the balance and found wanting; its inhabitants are divided into two parties, one of which wants to build their own spaceships and leave this society behind.

The Intergalactic Conference organised by the Association of Autonomous Astronauts in Bologna, earth, April 18-19 1998, will explore the new possibilities that open up when we form autonomous communities in outer space.

The Association of Autonomous Astronauts (AAA) was launched on April 23rd 1995 as the world's first independent and community-based space program. A Five Year Plan was also established for creating, by the year 2000, a world-wide network of local, community-based AAA groups dedicated to building their own spaceships.

This conference will bring together AAA delegates from around the world to present reports from the world-wide network of AAA groups. The conference will initiate a new phase of CONSOLIDATION for the AAA, during which Autonomous Astronauts will examine the achievements that they have made so far and prepare for the final stage of the Five Year Plan.
