Since the meeting was cancelled they made a lot of papers freely accessible through Dec. 31, 2017.  There are papers on all sorts of space topics, a couple I noticed at first glance were dealing with the status of the Orion service module and some papers about the NASA infrared imaging of SpaceX supersonic retropropulsion.
