2021 Region VII Student Conference 29 November - 30 November 2021 Melbourne, Australia & Online

Melbourne, Australia

AIAA is pleased to announce the Region VII/International Student Conference will be held from 29-30 November 2021 in conjunction with the Australia International Aerospace Congress (AIAC) in Melbourne, VIC (Australia). This conference is intended for AIAA Region VII Students from around the world, with the exceptions of Canada and Mexico, which have been incorporated into AIAA’s North America Regions.

The AIAA Region VII Student Conference is a technical and oral paper competition for undergraduate and graduate students of all majors! Connect with professionals in the Aerospace industry and also meet other like-minded students who share similar interests throughout Australia, and receive feedback on your work! Students may submit any paper that covers the technical disciplines of AIAA, and will have the chance to compete for cash prizes in a fun-filled two-day event. First-place winners will be offered a chance to compete in the 2022 International Student Conference, taking place in conjunction with the 2022 AIAA SciTech Forum, with flight, lodging, and most expenses paid.

Special Event Details: This event is online and in-person. A number of online presentation slots will be offered to Region VII Students to present their work to judges and receive feedback. Due to travel restrictions, these spots will be reserved for students located outside of Australia. Students in Australia able to travel to Melbourne should do so and present in-person.

Hotel & Travel

This conference is held in conjunction with the 2021 Australia International Aerospace Congress (AIAC). Students will be able to present without needing to register for the AIAC, however, not registering for the AIAC means you won’t get access to the great sessions and networking opportunities available to you through the hosting conference.

Hotel and group rate information will be available soon. Keep checking https://www.aiac.com.au/welcome for more information.
