AeroCON 2024 is organized by SAEINDIA and supported by SAE International. AeroCON 2024 invites industry practitioners, academicians, researchers and students to actively participate in the conference and leverage this unique opportunity to exchange ideas, information and opinions, share their research findings and experiences in aerospace engineering.

Call for Papers:

Authors are invited to submit original papers (written in English) not published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Authors need to submit an abstract first, and after notification of shortlisting, should submit the full-length paper. The submitted papers are subjected to formal peer review processes. At least one author of an accepted paper must register for the conference and make an oral presentation of the accepted paper. The conference proceedings will be published on SAE MOBILUS® and indexed in Scopus, Engineering Village (Ei Compendex) and IET Inspec. Please visit conference website for more details.

Call For Presentations:

Presentations provide the opportunity for authors to present their work, without submitting a formal written paper. Authors need to submit an abstract first, and after notification of shortlisting, are required to prepare and submit the presentation deck for review by the Technical Committee. Presentations are not subjected to formal peer review process and will not be included in the conference proceedings. Authors of accepted oral only presentations must register for the conference.
