11–13 August 2021
Virtual

Building upon a successful events in 2018–2020, the 2021 Electric Aircraft Technologies Symposium will look at progress over the past year and continue the discussion about the aerospace industry goals for future aircraft. To accommodate rapid growth in emerging markets and ensure sustainability of air travel, one approach being explored is using nontraditional aircraft propulsion: electric, turboelectric, or hybrid/electric powertrains. AIAA and IEEE crafted this unique symposium to bring the aerospace engineers and the electrical engineers together to discuss these topics and their challenges.

Driven by ambitious goals for the future of aviation, electrified aircraft propulsion has emerged as a key enabling technology for concepts ranging from more-electric aircraft to hybrid-electric propulsion systems and all-electric urban air mobility. Recognizing the growing importance of this multi-disciplinary field, AIAA and IEEE have identified the need to bring together electrical, propulsion system, and aerospace engineers as the industry looks to electrified propulsion technologies for future aircraft. The 3rd annual EATS event, held virtually in 2020, featured keynote addresses, panel sessions, and multiple technical presentation sessions over three days. More than 300 people from industry, government and academia attended.

The 4th annual AIAA/IEEE Electric Aircraft Technologies Symposium will take place 11–13 August 2021. We are currently anticipating a hybrid symposium format, where authors have the choice to present their work virtually or in person. Abstracts with a minimum length of 1500 words are encouraged, though successful submissions must include sufficient detail to demonstrate the purpose of the paper, the technical foundation for the topics to be discussed, any preliminary results to date, and the expected results of the final paper, including key figures, equations, tables, and references, as appropriate. Authors should submit to the topic, "Electric Aircraft Technology," during Step 2: Submission Details of the abstract submission process.

Papers are solicited in all relevant areas including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Electrified Aircraft Design (Fixed Wing and Rotary Wing)
  • Electric Machines
  • Electric Power Management and Distribution
  • Electrical Energy Generation and Storage (Battery, Fuel Cell, Solar, Regeneration, and Others)
  • Electrified Propulsion System Architectures
  • Failure/Fault Mode Protection, Diagnostics, and Modeling
  • High Voltage Considerations
  • Mission Operation (Energy, Cost, Emissions)
  • Power Electronics
  • Safety, Certification, and Standards
  • Superconducting and Cryogenic Systems and Components
  • System Dynamics, Modeling, and Control
  • Thermal Management
  • Vehicle, Propulsion, and Electric System Integration
  • Verification, Validation, and Testing

All are welcome at the Electric Aircraft Technology Symposium, however, please note this event will be co-located with the AIAA Propulsion and Energy Forum and will require a separate registration fee for participants and attendees.
