Share your expertise and knowledge

Speaking at RAeS Events offers considerable recognition of your knowledge and expertise, enabling you to share with our Members and wider industry personnel, your research, company projects and views, to a relevant and targeted audience.

There are many opportunities for academics and aviation & aerospace professionals to present at the Royal Aeronautical Society. Call for Papers will be listed across a broad range of subjects, across the 26 specialist interest areas.  Accepted papers may also be considered for inclusion in the Royal Aeronautical Society’s Aeronautical Journal, subject to the refereeing process.

Aerospace Speakers Travel Grants
Any students and young people who are at the beginning of their careers that are invited to present at a conference can apply for one of the Aerospace Speakers Travel Grants which are allocated on a quarterly basis.

Exploiting Technology: Airworthiness Opportunities & Challenges

26 April 2016 / London

The Royal Aeronautical Society’s Airworthiness and Maintenance Specialist Group is hosting a conference on 26 April 2016 which will explore the airworthiness opportunities and challenges associated with the use of emerging technologies.

Aviation has continually embraced and exploited technology; from the Wright Brothers use of automotive engines and bicycle technology on the Wright Flyer to the use of military-based technology from rapid wartime advances and the present incorporation of information age and sustainable technological capabilities.

This conference will focus on emerging technologies, some of which are established within other sectors, and how they can be employed and assimilated into improving aircraft airworthiness and maintenance. These will be considered from the perspective of design and manufacture; certification; aircraft maintenance and repair; as well as air traffic management.

A call for papers is now open for this conference and the deadline for submitting abstracts is Friday 12th February (this has been extended from the end of January). Click here to view the full call for papers and to find out more.


Advances in Simulation

7-8 June 2016 / London

The RAeS Flight Simulation Group are organising a conference on 7-8 June 2016 entitled 'Advances in Simulation'. Abstracts should be between 200-500 words and submitted to the Conference and Events Department by Monday 11 January 2016 to be considered. View the full Call for Papers here


Applied Aerodynamics Conference: Evolution & Innovation Continues - The Next 150 Years of Concepts, Design and Operations

19 - 21 July 2016 / Bristol, UK

This conference will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of aspects of the advancement of the aerodynamics disciplines and their application through current research, nearer term conception and longer term design and operations.

The call for papers for this conference is now open, so why not come along and present your work? Click here to view the full call for papers. The deadline for submitting abstracts is 29 January 2016 and speakers are entitled to register using a discounted rate.

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 2016 / 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.
