This event includes the following conferences:


53rd Structures, Structural Dynamics, and Materials Conference (SDM)

Sponsored by AIAA, ASME, ASCE, AHS, and ASC, this established annual conference is a widely acknowledged event that provides a unique forum dedicated to the latest developments in the collective disciplines of structures, structural dynamics, materials, design engineering, and survivability. This year’s presentations will address strategies and techniques for shortening the time required to bring new aircraft and spacecraft structures and materials technologies to flight readiness.


20th AIAA/ASME/AHS Adaptive Structures Conference

Bringing together basic and applied researchers from diverse disciplines in academia, government, and industry, this is the premier conference focused on the advancement of adaptive structures technology and its application to aerospace systems.


14th AIAA Non-Deterministic Approaches Conference

The aerospace industry increasingly recognizes the need for non-deterministic approaches (NDA) to manage uncertainty. These approaches include both probabilistic and non-probabilistic methods, and provide treatment of high consequence of failure events associated with the development and operation of aerospace systems.


13th AIAA Gossamer Systems Forum

An emerging class of large-scale, lightweight structures is enabling a paradigm shift in design, launch, and operation of spaceflight systems. Spacecraft with structural characteristics optimized for operation in space and for the ability to collapse into small packages for launch yield order-of-magnitude reductions in mass, launch volume, and lifecycle cost, as compared to large spaceflight systems.


8th AIAA Multidisciplinary Design Optimization Specialist Conference (MDO)

Multidisciplinary design optimization (MDO) focuses on optimizing the performance and reducing the costs of complex systems that involve multiple interacting disciplines, such as those found in aircraft, spacecraft, automobiles, industrial manufacturing equipment, and various consumer products, as well as on the development of related methodologies. MDO is a broad area that encompasses design synthesis, sensitivity analysis, approximation concepts, optimization methods and strategies, artificial intelligence, and rule-based design—all in the context of integrated design dealing with multiple disciplines, and interacting subsystems or systems of systems.
