2022 - EAA AirVenture Call for Papers
52nd European Symposium - Canceled
52nd European Symposium
SETP is sorry to report that due to the ongoing issues with COVID-19 that continue to bring many uncertainties with regard to planning an event, the European Planning Committee in Spain has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2022 European Symposium scheduled for 18-21 May 2022. We realize the disappointment that comes with this but felt it was the right decision due to the logistics in planning a symposium, travel restrictions/rules, etc.
We are pleased to announce that our Team in Sweden is on track for hosting the 2023 European Symposium in Linkoping for the June timeframe. More details will be announced as soon as they are available.
