4 GEPC Sessions At SciTech 2014 Franz-Josef Kahlen, GEPC Tech Chair 13 January 2014 Topics to be covered (not in order)Changes from ASM to SciTech – Opportunities for GEPC“Villaging”Venue AllocationSessionsExtended abstractsKeynoteScholarOne
5 Villaging / Venue Allocation Villaging: In the SciTech world, many previously unconnected events and groups are coming together for the first time. The organizers want to “village“ events together that address similar audiences. Our villagers: Applied Aero, Aircraft Design, Airbreathing Propulsion, Gas Turbine Engines Venues: From experience, a 50 – 100 seater venue is much too small, and a ballroom is too big. We have requested 170+ seat venues; we were given the biggest venue in the confeence hotel – 600 seats.

7 Observations / Lessons Learned ScholarOneAIAA help is usually available fast (thank you, Ann Ames)ScholarOne is not really set up for invited presentations.Many layers of authority must be activated, reviews are still requiredChanges past conference submission deadline are possible but require significant manual intervention.To minimize administrative post-deadline load, sessions topics should in the future be finalized mid April (accounting for a four week clearance period).AbstractsRecognizing the new environment (other TCs, PCs, etc.) and other conferences, I have asked for (but not enforced) extended abstracts of 2 pages.At some point, I think it would be useful to have some records of what GEPC has accomplished, if only for documentation and archival purposes. Further, the context at SciTech will be different in that the audience is made up from people we have not interacted with. Lastly, looking at the next five years, I expect that the format of the sessions will change and that we will end up with a full review process like many other groups. I have seen it in other conferences that you need to provide some track record to reach the next levels of maturity. Therefore, I believe it will be helpful to get some groundwork covered already today.
8 Questions to raise: SciTech structure: Morning and evening “shoulders“ take up much time and reduce session durations – does this add value for attendees?VillagingVenue sizeEarlier commitment - speakers / chairs / topics / AIAA adminFuture GEPC format:Should we join the formal call for papers?Is there a desired target size for GEPC – no. of papers or sessionsNo. of invited sessions? No. of regular sessions?Do we have a reviewer database?Role of sub-committees (invite keynotes, create and organize invited sessions, …)PC meeting format – meeting slot mutually exclusive with “co-villagers”
9 Personal word of thanks I could not have put these sessions together without the initiative of the session chairs, and certainly not without Richard Wahls soliciting proposals and help in general. Thanks much!
10 P&E 2014A few words of status from Ruben Del RosarioJuly 28-30, 2014Cleveland Medical Mart & Convention Center
11 GEPC Conference Strategy – OLD EVENT MODEL Green Engineering – spans scope of the TC’sCreate a “Green Engineering” Track at conferencesTarget JPC and ASM (SciTech & P&E Forum beginning in 2014)Add value, but minimize additional room space requiredSponsor/create several technical paper/panel sessions appropriate to Green EngineeringAvoid open “call for papers” and reviews … for now.Co-sponsor/leverage technical paper/panel sessions appropriate to Green Engineering created by TC’sGEPC has primarily been in the Technical Program Sessions
12 GEPC Conference Strategy – NEW EVENT MODEL Green Engineering – a PC that spans scope of the TC’sForums have 3 TiersPlenary, Integration, TechnicalIntegration (ideal for PC cross-cutting, system-view contribution)Technical (tech sessions as have historically existed)Recommended approach for GEPCContribute to SciTech, Aviation, and P&E ForumsIntegration Tier and Technical ProgramIntegration Tier – suggest/sponsor specific sessions (1/forum?)Technical ProgramInvited Sessions as we have doneParticipate in the formal Call for Papers to create 2 to 4 sessions

21 SciTech 14 Meeting NotesMark Melanson – the lead for Program Committees - discussed the Integration TierRich Wahls and Franz-Joseph Kahle briefed us on Conference status and plans. Chris Hughes volunteered to represent the GEPC at P&E 15.We had extensive discussions about our first “call for papers” being for SciTech15. Concerns were too much overlap with other committees and our ability to review abstracts. We agreed to develop a draft call for papers and run it by the P&E leadership.

26 Guiding principles for AIAA forums Ensure our Institute is relevant to aerospace professionalsEnsure our conferences integrate a spectrum of topics of interest to the profession (technical disciplines, systems, policy, operations, etc.) and other areas of the InstituteEnsure our overall events provide meaningful professional development and interaction opportunities to the broad aerospace community (conference papers/presentations, networking, education, exhibits, etc.)Ensure our events are financially viable (both for the attendee and for the Institute)Ensure that our conferences are “must attend” events for all those in our profession and can accommodate expansion into new technology and program areas
27 What do we want to accomplish with the Integration Tier? Expand the products that AIAA offers at its events to a broader swath of aerospace professionals than the R&D community, to whom it has most appealed historicallyEntice design engineers, analysts, systems engineers, etc., to join AIAA, or to become active if already a member, by offering compelling and topical subject matter, speakers and presentersBridge gap between plenary and technical sessions and offer relevant and instructive topics and materials to the great number of aerospace professionals who may not think of, or see, AIAA as offering much to them in terms of professional career development, training, or networking
28 What is the Integration Tier anyway? ContentOperational topicsSystem integrationTechnical program management topicsCross-disciplinary topicsEmerging technologiesTest, verification, reliability, safety, quality issuesPolicy and regulation topicsWorkforce and professional development issuesSupply chain discussionsTopics related to the intersection of government/industry/ academia
29 What is the Integration Tier anyway? FormatNot envisioned as traditional technical paper sessions but as sessions to allow dialogue and provide information that participants can apply at workIncludes various format types including but not limited to:Panel discussions focused on lessons learned, best practices, and case studiesTutorials, seminars, workshopsJoint sessions typical at current conferences when multiple committees have an interest in the same topic
30 How to build a strong Integration Tier Must be a combination of member and staff effortsTechnical Group Directors have the big picture about their areas and can help identify topicsProgram Committees have insight into relevant topics in their areaCorporate members have insight into industry issuesEmerging Technologies Committee can help identify new trends in technologyStaff has insight into industry wide trends and movementsStudents/professors have insight into academic/education topics
31 Outcomes of a well executed Integration Tier Creation of new technical communities in AIAACreation of new program communities in AIAAAIAA recognized as being on the forefront of industry issuesAIAA provides valuable workforce/professional development information to members/attendeesAIAA viewed as relevant–attracting more membersWe all go home from AIAA forums a bit more informed about a wider variety of topics
