Conferences

Providing opportunities to build knowledge, network and maintain CPD.

Engineers Australia hosts a variety of national and international conferences each year. Attending conferences provides opportunities to develop technical expertise, learn about industry trends, connect with thought leaders, build your professional network and maintain your CPD.
 
Each conference also provides the unique opportunity for organisations to raise awareness of their products, services and brand via bespoke sponsorship and exhibition packages.

The conference theme is Innovation within a contemporary aerospace industry and we are encouraging papers that explore this theme in both aviation and space domains.

In addition to the aerospace streams there will be specialist conferences and workshops including:

  • Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group International Conference on Health and Usage Monitoring (HUMS 2019)
  • 28 International Symposium on Space Flight Dynamics (ISSFD)
  • Moving Towards a Single Aviation Industry in Australia workshop

With more than 350 delegates from Australasia and beyond, the congress will bring aerospace professionals from industry, academia, research organisation and Defence Forces to explore ideas and ensure the ongoing success of the aerospace industry. We look forward to seeing you there.
