Explore the 2018 AIAA SciTech Forum

It Starts Here!

Innovation in aerospace starts here, at the AIAA Science and Technology Forum (AIAA SciTech Forum). AIAA SciTech Forum—and the 11 technical conferences that comprise the forum—have been delivering aerospace research and technology findings that have driven innovative developments for more than 50 years.

Detailed Technical Agenda

Don’t take our word for it. Listen to what a few of our 4,000 participants had to say.

TweetAvWeekPodcast "What this conference does is you see the ideas being born… technologies on the verge of being flown…you literally see it…you go each year and you see these technologies…you watch them progress from birth through the maturation process, to flight. Then they fly it, and they come back to tell the world whether the thing worked or not. This is where the entire R&D lifecycle is laid out…."—Guy Norris and Graham Warwick, Aviation Week and Space Technology Podcast
