Call For Papers

The conference seeks contributions covering current research focused on the design and manufacture of future civil and military air - vehicle structures both manned and uninhabited. The scope of the conference covers both airframe and engines. This includes consideration of innovative forms and design scenarios together with the challenges resulting from considering the complete aircraft life-cycle from initial concept to final disposal. The design and analysis of structures constructed from CFRP composites and novel materials is a major topic area for the conference.

Papers and other contributions will be sought to cover the following broad topic areas:

• Structural Design

Contributions may be submitted that discuss the application of knowledge based engineering methods and tools in supporting the design task. Papers that introduce multidisciplinary aspects and novel configurations into the design task are welcome.

• FRP and Advanced/Novel Material

Contributors may wish to consider how these material systems can be maintained in service through non-destructive testing and characterisation, real time structural health monitoring and subsequently remanufactured or re-cycled. Papers discussing the potential for novel nano-materials such as graphene and the associated manufacturing evaluation and certification issues would be welcome.

• Computational Method

Papers under this heading can cover the full range of design and analysis methods involving multi-disciplinary or single discipline environments employing a range of discipline models from simple to complex including the incorporation of advanced optimisation methods. Improvements in the performance of these computational methods through the use of massively parallel computing facilities can be addressed. The design focus may be directed at flexible aircraft including active/adaptive structures and non-linear behaviour.

• Case Studies
Contributions from such case studies would allow researchers to re-focus their research targets to meet these needs. Papers looking at the particular structural design problems imposed by integration requirements would be welcome.

Potential contributors should note that the first three of the major areas outlined above are not to be considered as discrete and papers which combine topics in two or more of the above headings will be welcome.


The International Organising Committee invites prospective authors to submit abstracts of original work for presentation at the Conference. Authors are requested to contribute both a half hour presentations at the conference and a written paper for the proceedings. The Organising Committee reserve the right to enforce a no paper, no present / no present, no paper rule.

Abstracts should be written in English and contain between 200 - 500 words, preferably in electronic pdf format.

The deadline for submitting abstracts is Monday 1 April 2018. Accepted scripts and presentations, fully cleared for publication and presentation should be submitted by Friday 15 September 2018.

All written papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings and made available to delegates on a CD-ROM or through the Society’s web pages. Accepted papers may also be considered for inclusion in the Royal Aeronautical Society’s Aeronautical Journal, subject to the refereeing process.

It is important to note that papers should not have been published previously and they should avoid inappropriate sales or marketing content.

Speakers will be entitled to register using a reduced delegate rate.

To submit an abstract please email us with the following information:

-Corresponding author’s name

-Speaker’s name (including title)

-Speaker’s job title

-Speaker’s employer

-Title of presentation/ paper


Please send this to the Royal Aeronautical Society on
