Young Researcher/Engineer Participation:

In a special drive AIAC17 has collaborated with several Australian universities with active aerospace programs who have nominated their young academics and researchers to champion the participation of their young research students and staff.

The organising committee has worked tirelessly to bring you a memorable AIAC17.  However, the success of this congress will depend on you, the participants.

Together, let’s make the AIAC17 a grand success.

Looking forward to seeing you at AIAC17 (26 February – 02 March 2017).
