New Frontiers in Air & Space: PNW AIAA Technical Symposium April 20, 2024

The 16th Pacific Northwest AIAA Technical Symposium is coming up on Saturday April 20, 2024 at the Lynnwood Event Center, 3711 196th Street SW, Lynnwood, WA 98036.

The program features three keynotes, twelve topical technical sessions–divided equally between air and space topics–and an exhibitor expo. Included in the registration cost are a continental breakfast preceding the opening keynote and a lunch buffet for the mid-day keynote.

View of Symposium Session

We’ll take a look into the distant past through deep infrared eyes and ahead to permanent off-world colonies. We’ll meet the next generation of innovators, and today’s industry leaders, in student poster and symposium sponsor exhibits in the expo between sessions. We’ll network with colleagues and friends, old and new, over breakfast, lunch and after the final presentation.

It’s shaping up to be a kaleidoscopic view into the near-term future of aerospace as it’s being shaped, both in the air and outside of it.

So…mark your calendar and make your registration.
