William Littlewood Memorial Lecture Open for Nominations 1 July 2019 15 January 2020

The William Littlewood Memorial Lecture provides for an annual lecture dealing with a broad phase of civil air transportation considered of current interest and major importance. The objective is to advance air transport engineering and to recognize those who make personal contributions to the field. The award, jointly sponsored by AIAA and SAE, perpetuates the memory of William Littlewood, the only person ever to be president of both AIAA and SAE. He was renowned for his contributions to the design of, and operational requirements for, civil transport aircraft. To perpetuate his memory, many of his friends requested SAE and AIAA to sponsor a series of lectures to be known as the “William Littlewood Memorial Lecture.” This annual Lecture is presented by AIAA in even-numbered years at their AIAA Aviation and Aeronautics Forum (AVIATION) and is presented by SAE in odd-numbered years at their AeroTech Congress & Exhibition. The awardee receives a framed certificate. Administration of the award resides with SAE. Nominations should be submitted to SAE at https://www.sae.org/participate/awards/william-littlewood-memorial-lecture Nomination Deadline: 15 January
