Past Events 2016

AirTN-NextGen Workshop on Virtual testing, towards virtual certification

25 May, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Where currently extensive experimental verification is needed, further development of design and simulation capabilities may increase the competitiveness of industry. In this workshop the focus was on the theme of key isolated or clustered multidisciplinary aeronautics industrial problems with presently low degree of confidence in design and simulation and that therefore need extensive experimental verification. All presentations are available.

6th EASN International Conference on Innovation in European Aeronautics Research

18-21 October, Portugal
In 2016, for the first time, the European Aeronautics Science Network will convene in Portugal. The 6th International Conference of EASN will be co-organised with the Institute of Science and Innovation in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (INEGI) of the University of Porto (FEUP).
The 6th EASN International Conference is set to be the larger, broader and most comprehensive gathering of the Association. It is designed to be the year’s leading forum for discussion and exchange of information about state-of-the-art research and development activities in Aeronautics and Air Transport.
The conference will include plenary sessions by renowned speakers and open discussions with distinguished researchers from the industry and academia. It will also include thematic sessions housing the majority of current european aeronautics research programs and technical workshops where evolving ideas, technologies, products, services and processes will be discussed. In this respect, the conference is expected to foster the cooperation and interaction between its participants on a multidisciplinary basis serving as a meeting for exchanging novel and innovative ideas for future research.
The 2016 EASN Conference will be a flagship event in dissemination of aeronautics research activities and the goal is to share high quality, current achievements and new upstream research ideas.

INAIR 2016
