Tentative List of Conference Sessions


The 9th EASN International Conference gives the opportunity to scientists and researchers from all over the world to present their recent achievements in a series of thematic sessions, organized by internationally recognized scientists. The Agenda of the Conference will include sessions all along with technical workshops where evolving ideas, technologies, products, services and processes will be discussed. Research projects are also invited to exploit the opportunity and disseminate their results and achievements in dedicated Sessions.

Thematic sessions consist of presentations oriented towards the latest industrial interest, as well as the latest collaboration opportunities between industry and academia. So far, as the tentative agenda of the Conference is shaping up, more than 50 thematic sessions, including at least 15 dedicated sessions to EU funded research projects that will disseminate their results, have already confirmed their participation. In the same time, preparations are in progress to organize dedicated workshops for “The regional dimension of Clean Sky: Innovation and Technologies created in the European aeronautics regions”, as well as for the the joint Research Initiative Future Sky .
