63rd Annual Symposium & Banquet - Call for Papers

THE SOCIETY OF EXPERIMENTAL TEST PILOTS

63rd SYMPOSIUM & BANQUET

The Grand Californian Hotel
Anaheim, California

25-28 September 2019

CALL FOR PAPERS

Since 1957, professionals in the international flight test community have gathered at the annual “S&B” to exchange lessons learned, focus on new and emerging concepts, and engage in the pursuit of enhanced flight test safety and efficiency. The foundation for this endeavor has always been the presentation of technical papers from Society members and the flight test community at large. Whether you’re a flight test “gray beard,” a newly minted TPS grad, or someone in between, we all have something to contribute. Many of your lessons learned (and relearned) are germane to why our Society exists, and should be submitted for consideration at this year’s event. Please share your knowledge, share your issues, share your solutions.

Papers for the 2019 Symposium will be selected on the basis of their potential to educate and enlighten attendees. Technical content is paramount; tailor your submission to provide value to a diverse international audience.  Manuscripts will be gratefully accepted for online publication, but will not be required.

PLEASE NOTE:  PAPERS MUST BE TECHNICALLY ORIENTED, NOT SALES ORIENTED.  AVOID DIRECT REFERENCE TO COMPETING SYSTEMS.

Abstracts should provide, in no more than 150 words, both the one or two critical ideas or lessons you hope your audience will remember and how your lessons will be explained and/or defended in the presentation. The deadline for abstract submission is 7 June 2019. Titles should not exceed ten words.  Each technical presentation selected is given a 30-minute slot, which includes time for any questions/discussion from the audience.
