From its creation in 1963, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) has organized conferences to serve the aerospace profession as part of its core mission. Spanning over 70 technical discipline areas, AIAA’s conferences provide scientists, engineers, and technologists the opportunity to present and disseminate their work in structured technical paper sessions, learn about new technologies and advances from other presenters, further their professional development, and expand their professional networks.
AIAA SciTech Forum is the world's largest event for aerospace research, development, and technology. It connects the international community of academic, industry, and government professionals in the civil, commercial, and national security sectors, along with leaders from adjacent industries, to address challenges and technical opportunities. The forum also connects technical experts with business, government, and academic leaders to envision, test, build, and problem solve, together.
AIAA SciTech Forum grows each year in depth of content and size of engagement, with more than 5,000 aerospace professionals from 44 countries and all 50 states, including 1,500 students who represent the future of aerospace. The forum’s program consists of two main parts; the technical program offers a deeper take on research and technologies geared to solve specific problems, and the plenary and Forum 360 sessions tackle the most pressing issues impacting the future of aerospace on a high level.
