Press Working Group

My dear EUROAVIAns,

last week we had the pleasure to celebrate 3 great anniversaries during the Fly-In Carlow in Ireland: 2 birthdays and St. Patrick's Day! 
Indeed, it was EUROAVIA's birthday and Nicola Cimmino's one. The former is 58 years old and the latter is a bit younger. :) 
As always, to have the pleasure to meet new friends, learn a lot of new things and to experience someone else's habits and cultures give us the honor to come back home in a really different but much better way.

That's why today, we want to give you the opportunity to try what I mentioned above by applying to the CAES Conference 2017! Hurry up because we're getting near the deadline.

Last but not least, the Press WG has 3 new great members: Lidia Motfolea, Gero Förster and Francesco Di Lauro. I'm sure you will meet them soon somewhere around Europe, but for now you can try to answer their questions in the Quiz Section! Let us know if you pass the exam! ;)

All the best,
Valentina Luchetti
Press WG Coordinator

CAES Conference 2017

The 6th CEAS Conference Aerospace Europe will take place between 16th and 20th of October 2017, in Bucharest, Romania in the Palace of the Parliament.

The Conference is organized every two years, in a different European city, by the Council of European Aerospace Societies (CEAS). CEAS is an International Non-Profit Association, with the aim to develop a framework within which the major Aerospace Societies in Europe can work together. Its basic mission is to add value at a European level to the wide range of services provided by the constituent Member Societies, allowing for greater dialogue between the latter and the European institutions, governments, aerospace and defense industries and academia.

The organizers of the 6th edition are the Aeronautics and Astronautics Association of Romania (AAAR) and the Romanian Research and Development Institute for Gas Turbines COMOTI.

The conference will include 25 technical sessions, addressing various topics aligned to the those of the International Council of the Aeronautical Sciences and of the International Astronautical Federation. To this date, top scientists from 23 countries in Europe, the Americas, and Asia have submitted abstracts for the conference. Alongside the regular technical sessions, eight plenary sessions are planned featuring invited keynote speakers representing top academic and research institutions, industrial stakeholders, and governmental agencies interested in aviation and space. For more information, access

Special sessions and workshops will be organized by each partner. The Advisory Council for Aviation Research (ACARE) will present the updated Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), ONERA (France) the new propulsion architectures, Airbus the aircraft flow control technologies,  COMOTI  the latest research results on the constant volume and distributed combustion, the European Commission and DLR the research infrastructures in Europe.
The main objectives of the Conference are to contribute to establishing European leadership in aeronautics and space science and technology, to develop a real scientific collaboration between European scientists and engineers in the field of aeronautics and space, to facilitate the reunion of the main stakeholders in the European aeronautics and space field, to advance towards transforming the current CEAS Conference series into a European Aerospace Congress.

EUROAVIA București encourages young professionals and graduate students to participate and contribute in a major European scientific event. Thanks to its generous sponsors: COMOTI, INCAS, Aerostar S.A., Magic Engineering and Dassault Systems, students can benefit of significantly discounted fees: 50 € for one paper, and free registration if more than one paper is accepted, for undergraduate students, and between 50 € and 150 €, depending on the number of accepted papers, and free registration if more than one paper is accepted, for graduate students.
