6 SAT TC @ ASM 2013 SAT Session advertisement
Abstract deadline: Tuesday, June, 5, 2012 Encourage colleagues TC members have also reached out to other groups Interest in assistant chair Training: May 24th or 31st Other activities Delta Forum last year

7 AIAA New Event Model Conference Changes
New Event Model Goals Ensure our Institute is relevant to aerospace professionals Ensure our conferences integrate a spectrum of topics of interest to the profession (technical disciplines, systems, policy, operations, etc.) Ensure our overall events provide meaningful professional development and interaction opportunities to the broad aerospace community (conference papers/presentations, networking, education, 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

8 AIAA New Event Model Conference Changes
Definitions Conference – a meeting focused on a specific technology discipline or a related set of disciplines Exposition – a companion exhibit / trade show that allows conference attendees to interact with representatives of commercial industrial base Forum – an umbrella event that includes a collection of technical, programmatic, policy, etc., sessions on topics of interest to aerospace professionals Tiers – different organized levels of forum New events you’ll see next are all Forums and Expositions that use the old AIAA Conferences as building blocks.

9 AIAA New Event Model Conference Changes

Inherited Conferences: Space 20XX ICSSC Astrodynamics Conf. ICES CASE InfoTech

10 AIAA New Event Model Conference Changes
Three-Tiered Program Structure Plenary – provides the aerospace professional insight into the opportunities and challenges that face the aerospace industry Integration – provides the aerospace professional the ability to engage in cross-cutting topics and solutions to system level challenges Discipline – provides the aerospace professional the opportunity to engage in technical exchange on focused topics of interest

11 AIAA New Event Model Conference Changes
SAT TC Proposed Roles Tier Science and Technology Defense and Security Aviation and Aeronautics Propulsion and Energy Space and Astronautics Plenary S N/A Integration O Discipline O = “organizer” – primary responsibility for Tier planning; actively engaged in track, session, panel development and paper and speaker recruiting within Tier (note where yearly alternating schedule might be desired) S = “support” – review abstracts, provide other support as requested within Tier N/A = “not applicable” – Forum Tier does not touch committee area of interest O level on any Tier earns a seat on the organizing committee for the Forum
