Human Spaceflight: UK Strategy in the Run-Up to Tim Peake's Flight
1 December 2015 / London, UK
This conference will provide an opportunity to respond to the publication of a UK Government policy paper on human spaceflight. The timeliness is heightened by the impending launch of Britain’s first official astronaut, Tim Peake, to the International Space Station (ISS).
At this conference we are planning a soapbox session which will allow people to present their reactions to the new strategy in a 5 minute pitch. The deadline for registering your interest in this is Friday 30 October 2015. Click here to find out more.

5th Aircraft Structural Design Conference
4 - 6 October 2016 / Lisbon, Portugal
This conference will address the challenges facing the designers of the next generation of aircraft. These arise because the new designs will need to meet strict environmental constraints and will be subject to ever increasing pressures for reductions in manufacturing and life-cycle costs and continual improvements in overall performance/efficiency factors. The resulting aircraft will be complex, requiring multi-disciplinary design approaches and solutions in a distributed design environment.

Rotorcraft Virtual Engineering
8 - 10 November 2015 / Liverpool
Supporting Life-Cycle Engineering through Design and Development, Test and Certification and Operations. The use of virtual engineering (VE) in support of the engineering life cycle has been growing over time as computational power, and the skills to use this effectively, have increased. So much so that nowadays it is the virtual prototype (VP) that can be a powerful ‘centre of attention’ through design and development, manufacture and assembly, testing and certification, support to operations and upgrade developments.
