Cancelled - 2020 Region VI Student Conference 28 March - 29 March 2020 Portland State University, Portland, Oregon

The student and volunteer organizers of the AIAA Region VI Student Conference have cancelled their conference due to concerns about the coronavirus.

The Region VI Student Conference was scheduled to be held 28–29 March at Portland State University and was originally postponed to a new date in the future. However, a decision has been reached to cancel the conference at this time out of an abundance of caution due to a concern for the health and safety of visitors, students, faculty, and staff. AIAA will provide a full refund of conference registration fees in the next 3 to 5 business days.

Student papers submitted to the conferences will still be evaluated by technical judges, and feedback will be provided after reviews have been completed. We apologize for this inconvenience, and we appreciate your understanding and patience. For any questions, please contact Michael Lagana at

We encourage everyone to follow the coronavirus safety guidelines set out by the  WHO  and  CDC.
