To be held online at 1100 British Summer Time on Friday 22nd October.
This will be followed by student presentations starting at 12 o’clock noon.
Zoom is probably the most likely video telepresence software platform we will be using, and the uniform resource locator will be made available asap. Please click to view the agenda.

The fifteenth International Conference of Multiphysics will be held virtually for the first time on 10-11 December 2020. The objective of the conference is to share and explore findings on mathematical advances, numerical modelling and experimental validation of theoretical and practical systems in a wide range of applications. Our Association has always sponsored the aerospace session in the past at zero cost.

Authors are invited to submit abstracts by 31 October 2020. For abstract submission, please visit http://www.multiphysics.org/conference

There is no registration fee.

The AAU/Aerospace Sectoral Group AGM will take place starting at 1200 on Friday 23rd October and will be a virtual event instead of a physical one that was going to be held at UWE. This year’s Annual Student Conference has been cancelled.
Please see the agenda here.

To be held at Al Ghurair University in Dubai from Saturday 14th – Sunday 15th December.

The aerospace sessions will be sponsored by the AAU as in the past.

The aviation industry is under transformation. New technologies are making flying faster, safer, less noisy and more sustainable. These innovations, however, require new skills. How can we equip the workers of tomorrow with the newest competences required by the market? And how do we generate pathways for the next generation to join this dynamic and essential sector for the UK?

We will address this and other questions during this landmark event, which will bring together major players across aerospace, education and government to collectively agree on a way forward for the creation of world-class UK Centres of Excellence for Aviation.

Join us on Wednesday, 9th October 2019 at 09:30 – 16:30 at the Novotel London Stansted Airport in Stansted.

To be held at the University of Hertfordshire. Follow links for more details and map.

The AAU Committee meeting (follow link for agenda) will take place in the morning followed by the free annual Universities Seminar (follow link for details) in room C1 in Geroge Begg Building at the University of Manchester, M13 9PL (follow link for map).

The aim of the seminar is to foster flight simulation in universities by bringing together all institutions with an interest in flight simulation to exchange information, encourage cooperation & collaboration between all interested parties.

All colleagues and students are strongly encouraged to participate and to consider offering to give a short presentation about some aspect of flight simulation in your department. If you would like to present, please email Barry Tomlinson: b.tomlinson110@btinternet.com

The 14th Annual AAU Conference will be held in December in Dubai.
More details including the exact date and venue will be available shortly.

As in recent years, the AAU will be running the John Barnes Conference for students who have just completed an Individual Project on their degree; this year we are pleased to be holding it in the  IDEAS Suite, 1st Floor, Aerospace Integration Research Centre, Cranfield University, Bedfordshire on Friday 19th  October 2018.

We will continue with the very successful format whereby entrants have the opportunity to present at a full day’s conference. The winner will receive a certificate and a prize of £500. The two runners up will each receive a prize of £300. Over and above this, it will be an excellent experience to include on their CVs for all students involved as it provides an ideal opportunity to present their achievements to a technically broad audience drawn from a number of Universities and the aerospace sector more generally. It is this that provides the challenge of presenting work in a specialist area to non-specialists – a very important skill to develop.

The process for entry will be as follows:

Step1: The AAU representative at each member institution, together with colleagues, will select one individual student project. This may be at final year BEng/BSc, MEng (whether penultimate or final year) or taught MSc level.

Step2: The representative will submit a one page abstract, which must give a good outline of what the project is about, to myself at my e-mail address below.

Step3: If the number of entries is large, a Panel made up of AAU representatives will be convened to shortlist from these submissions. All AAU members will be receive an invitation to join this panel.

Step4: The authors will be invited to present at the conference where each presenter will be given 25 minutes, including questions, to present their project. The Panel will then award the certificates and prizes to the winning student and runners up.

The extended deadline for receipt of entries is now Wednesday 18th July. If shortlisting is required, a Panel will then be convened and the outcome will be made known on Friday 27th July.
