Deadline for Author registration





Authors are invited to submit original papers (written in English) not published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Authors need to submit a 250 - 300 word abstract first, and after notification of shortlisting, should submit the full-length paper. Authors are encouraged to submit the abstract early, to receive the notifications earlier and work on the full-length paper if shortlisted. The length of the paper should be between 6 to 10 pages in length. Papers not in these limits, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further review. All submitted full-length papers will be subjected to formal peer-review process. Post the peer review process, authors will be notified of acceptance.

Academic papers should cover theory or theory validation, although papers presenting research proposals coupled with initial results will also be considered. Practice-focused papers should include problem space and approach through implementation. Papers that provide insight into critical aerospace technologies and systems design & development will align well with the conference theme. Literature review papers are not considered.

At least one author of an accepted paper must register for the conference and make an oral presentation of the accepted paper in the conference, for their paper to be considered for inclusion in the conference proceedings. Accepted papers will be submitted to SAE International MyTechZone for consideration for inclusion in AeroCON 2022 Conference Proceedings. The Proceedings will be published on SAE MOBILUS® ( and indexed in Scopus, Engineering Village (Ei Compendex) and IET Inspec.

SAE Event process will be followed for paper submissions and management. For more information, guidelines and paper submission templates, please visit



Presentations (or “oral only presentations”) provide the opportunity for authors to share their work, novel approaches, or interesting problems addressed without submitting a formal written paper. Presentations are reviewed by the Conference Technical Committee for inclusion in the program but are not subject to the formal peer-review process. Presentation format, for instance a  MS PowerPoint ppt file  is suitable. . Authors need to submit an abstract first, and after notification of shortlisting are required to create a presentation deck to facilitate a 15-minute presentation during the conference, and submit the deck. The presentation decks submitted will be reviewed by the Technical Committee, and authors will be notified of acceptance. Presentations will NOT be included in the conference proceedings. All authors of accepted  presentations must register for the conference before the presentation is admitted in the final conference program.
