The 16th conference convened in Tampa, Florida in 2006, and the proceedings are published in two hefty volumes accompanied by a CD- ROM, which holds all the papers for those who simply prefer digital or want to search by subject (the volumes themselves have numerical and author indexes). Arrangement is in sections on attitude dynamics and control, attitude estimation, mission analysis, formation flying, orbit mechanics and determination, optimization, navigation, solar sails and tethers, and surveillance and space debris; special sessions address deep impact, the Jupiter Icy Moons Orbiter Mission, and the Haybusa and Neo missions. The AAS Dirk Brouwer Award Lecture concluded the conference, with F. Landis Markley addressing "Humble Problems." This two-volume proceedings set is published by Univelt for the American Astronautical Society.
