2020 Region VII Student Paper Competition & AIAA Sydney Section Student Conference 25 November - 26 November 2020 Virtual

Campus of the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia

AIAA Sydney Section Student Conference Moves to Fully Online

AIAA has announced that the AIAA Sydney Section Student Conference, cosponsored by the AIAA Student Branch at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, NSW (Australia) and the AIAA Sydney Professional Section, set for 25–26 November 2020, will be fully online.

The University of New South Wales in Sydney, NSW will host this year’s Region VII Student Conference on 25–26 November. This will be a virtual event. Cohosted by the UNSW AIAA Student Branch and the AIAA Sydney Section. The 2020 Region VII Student Conference provides students with ample opportunity to network with their peers and professional members of industry and present their original research in front of a group of volunteer professional member judges who will provide them with feedback. Students will have the chance to compete for cash prizes in a fun-filled two-day event!

New! Announcing a Master’s Category – students pursuing a Master’s by research degree across AIAA Region VII are welcome to submit their papers to the 2020 Region VII Student Conference.

Note for 2020:
Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, AIAA has determined for all Regional Paper Conference submissions to be judged on technical papers only. As such, any participation in the section-sponsored conference at UNSW will be separate from the Region VII technical paper competition which will determine the Region VII representatives at the International Student Conference, which is scheduled to take place at the 2021 AIAA SciTech Forum and Exposition in Nashville, TN (USA).

**This competition is subject to all applicable laws, including US export laws. US law prevents AIAA from awarding prize money to, or providing substantive feedback on entries from, persons residing in Iran, Cuba, North Korea, Crimea, Sudan, or Syria.
