2019 AIAA/IEEE Electric Aircraft Technologies Symposium - Call for Papers

August 22-24, 2019 | Indianapolis, Indiana

Building upon a successful event in 2018, the 2019 Electric Aircraft Technologies Symposium will look at progress over the past year and continue the discussion about the aerospace industry goals for future commercial transport aircraft. To accommodate rapid growth in emerging markets and ensure sustainability of air travel, one approach being explored is using nontraditional aircraft propulsion: electric, turboelectric, or hybrid-electric powertrains. AIAA and IEEE crafted this unique symposium to bring the aerospace engineers and the electrical engineers together to discuss these topics and their challenges.

The 2019 symposium will focus on electric aircraft technology across three general areas: electric-power enabled aircraft configurations and systems requirements, enabling technologies for electric aircraft propulsion, and electric aircraft system integration and controls. Papers are solicited in all relevant areas including, but not limited to:


Aircraft Configurations and Systems Requirements
  • System feasibility studies
  • Electric-enabled innovative aircraft design and propulsion concepts
  • Electrical powertrain performance requirements
  • Safety, critical failure modes, certification
  • Lifecycle energy, operational cost, and emission analysis


Enabling Technologies and Components
  • Machines and drives integration for optimum performance
  • Conventional, cryogenic, and superconducting
  • Energy storage devices and systems
  • Electric machine and gas turbine integration
  • New material solutions or applications
  • Novel thermal management solutions


System Integration and Controls
  • Electric powertrain architectures
  • Fault isolation and reconfigurable systems
  • Energy management systems
  • Integrated electro-thermal systems
  • System modeling tools
  • Monitoring and diagnostics
  • Verification and testing
