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