Call for Abstracts - Tracks

You are invited to submit an abstract for your proposed presentation or training course. Submitted abstracts should enhance the technical discussion of the various initiatives and technology supporting aging aircraft issues while continuing to focus on airframe structural integrity, emphasis will also be placed on those common technologies that effectively support aircraft integrity, equipment reliability and airworthiness in general, and on new developments in military or commercial aircraft integrity programs. Submission of abstracts in these areas is highly encouraged.

Listed below are the tracks for more detailed information.

Overviews & Case Histories

The analytical and/or experimental results of aircraft structure for full-scale fatigue tests or in-service aircraft.
