Welcome to the AeroDef 2021 Conference Submission Site

We are currently accepting new abstract submissions for the 2021 AeroDef Conference.

The AeroDef conference offers a unique opportunity to speak face-to-face with engineers, product designers, and managers looking for innovative solutions to their most difficult manufacturing challenges. Presentations offer a practical look at the issues encountered at multiple levels of the extended enterprise and represent a wide spectrum of manufacturing technologies, including:

Additive Manufacturing/3D Technology, Advanced Inspection Technologies, Automation, Assembly & Robotics, Composites & Advanced Materials, Cybersecurity and Cryptographic Modernization, Digital Engineering & Modeling Simulation, Electrification of the Aircraft, Hypersonic Technologies, Next Generation Tooling Technologies & Applications, Quantification Certification, Integrated Assembly, Precision Machining, Finishing & Coatings, Quality, Measurement & Inspection and Smart Manufacturing.

The Evaluation Process:
Members of the Conference Advisory Committee will evaluate all proposed abstracts based on the following criteria: overall quality, relevance to the industry, well-defined focus within the program track structure, practical applications of material, timeliness of the topic, and speaker qualifications.

To be considered as a conference speaker, your abstract must be educational in nature — sales presentations will not be accepted . The final program selections and notifications will be made by early June, acceptance / rejection notifications will be delivered via email to all submitters.
