Cancelled - 2020 AIAA Defense and Security Forum (AIAA DEFENSE Forum) 5 May - 7 May 2020

AIAA is sensitive to the worldwide concern regarding the coronavirus infection, and we have been closely monitoring the situation. The health and safety of our event participants are our first priority. Based on recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Department of Defense, AIAA has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 AIAA DEFENSE Forum that was to be held 5-7 May in Laurel, Maryland, and the Trusted Autonomous Systems Course that was to be held 8 May. 

Please note:

  • All paid attendees’ registration fees will be automatically refunded via the original method of payment.It is the responsibility of each participant to cancel his or her hotel room.
  • If you made reservations with the Homewood Suites in Laurel, please contact them at 240-360-2725. 
  • If you have made airline reservations, please contact the airline as soon as possible as AIAA cannot be responsible for costs associated with travel.

While we do not plan to reschedule the 2020 AIAA DEFENSE Forum or Trusted Autonomous Systems course this calendar year, we look forward to your future participation with AIAA, and hope that you’ll mark your calendar for the 2021 AIAA DEFENSE Forum, 20-22 April in Laurel, Maryland.

We appreciate your continued support and understanding as we all adjust to these uncertain times. Please take care of yourself, your loved ones, and your community. If we can be of assistance, or if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact
