AerospaceEurope 2021 Conference

The Aerospace Europe Conference 2021 will be held in Warsaw, 23-26 November 2021. The conference will be organized by CEAS together with Polish Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics , Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute of Aviation & Warsaw University of Technology. Due to the uncertainty related to the COVID-19 pandemic, two forms of conference are considered – traditional (face-to-face) and on-line. Maybe the hybrid form that will combine classical sessions for limited number of participants with on-line connection will be the best solution.

The main motto for the conference is 3R triptych “Restore, Rethink, Redesign”. It contains the following topics:

  • digitalization
  • artificial intelligence
  • more electrical aircraft
  • hybrid propulsion
  • alternative fuels
  • H2 propulsion
  • design of the future aircraft

However the conference will also cover the typical topics for aerospace conference:

  • General Aviation
  • Aircraft Design
  • Aerodynamics (incl. CFD)
  • Flight Dynamics
  • Helicopter Dynamics
  • Materials and Structures
  • Control and Flight Tests
  • UAVs
  • Green Aviation
  • Space (incl. ‘Clean Space’, ’Less debris’ etc.)
  • Civil Aviation financial and economic aspects
  • Airports
  • Maintenance and Repair Overhaul (MRO)
  • Defence and Security
  • SESAR and EUROCONTROL (ATM) challenges

AEC-21 will be held in promises of Łukasiewicz Research Network – Institute of Aviation – one of the largest scientific and research institution in Europe, with over 90 years of experience in aeronautical engineering and space research. Institute of Aviation is located very close to the International Frederic Chopin Airport (only 3 km) and just 5 km from the City Center.



The key dates:

  • 1 Jan 2021 First Announcement and call for papers, website open
  • 1 Feb 2021 Abstract uploading open
  • 1 Apr 2021 Abstract uploading deadline
  • 1 May 2021 Acceptance of papers finished
  • 30 Jun 2021 Deadline for full length papers submission

The extended abstracts will be collected in the proceedings in the form of a CD/USB and distributed during the seminar. All full length papers will be sent to reviewers and then the best articles will be recommended to publish in one of the following journals:

  • CEAS Aeronautical Journal
    The CEAS Aeronautical Journal has been created under the umbrella of CEAS to provide an appropriate platform for excellent scientific publications submitted by scientists and engineers. It is supported by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the European Space Agency (ESA).
  • CEAS Space Journal
    The CEAS Space Journal has been created by the CEAS Space Branch to provide an appropriate platform for the excellent scientific publications submitted by scientists and engineers. Under the umbrella of CEAS, the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the European Space Agency (ESA) support the Journal.
  • Transactions on AEROSPACE RESEARCH (TAR)
    The Institute of Aviation has been publishing Transactions of the Institute of Aviation since 1956 and since 2 years renamed into TAR and edited by SCIENDO . It publishes new, original articles written by researchers collaborating with the Institute, including those from abroad. The scope of the publication is closely related to the area of activity of the Institute and the scientific conferences organized there. All articles are reviewed before publishing.

The other publishing options are also considered and they will be presented in the second announcement.

The conference fees depend on the final form of the conference and on the form of participating in the conference. The fees will be announced as soon as the form of the conference has been fixed.
