The European Aeronautics Science Network carried out successfully the 5th, out of a series of annual specialized Workshops, in the field of Aerostructures. The workshop was successfully hosted by the University of Manchester, from 2nd to 4th September 2015.
EASN International Workshops, every year aim to share high quality, current achievements and new upstream ideas for future research and in the same time to offer its participants a forum to meet and present among relative audience, the latest advancements, this year, in the area of Aerostructures.
In this frame, the event proved to be a unique opportunity for the participants to obtain an overview of the recent advancements in the research scene, with presentations from 21 ongoing research projects and support actions which were performed in three parallel sessions. In addition, 30 scientific papers have been published in the Workshop proceedings, some of which will be published following peer review in two scientific journals, namely the "International Journal of Structural Integrity" (IJSI) of Emerald Group Publishing and "Advances in Aircraft and Spacecraft Science" (AAS) of Techno-Press. Furthermore, distinguished speakers updated the delegates about the future Industrial trends and European priorities with respect to the medium and long-term goals, as set by the aviation stakeholders and participants had the opportunity to engage into fruitful discussions and networking with more than 100 representatives of the Academia, research community and industry.
Finally and responding to the increasing interest from the European Aeronautics Community for a scientific event which offers a forum for discussion and exchange of information about state-of-the-art research and development activities in Aeronautics and Air Transport, EASN announced its 6th annual International Conference on Innovation in European Aeronautics Research which will be held on October 18 - 21, 2016 at INEGI premises, Porto, Portugal. More information will be available soon.
