ICAS, founded by American engineer and physicist Theodore von Karman in 1957, is one of the most reputable international public scientific organizations. The Council brings together on an equal basis countries, organizations, scientists and experts from around the world for the purpose of promotion of cooperation and exchange of information in aerospace research. Our country has been represented in ICAS since 1973. ICAS Congresses are the world’s largest international aeronautics forums, held every two years since 1958. ICAS-2012 brought together more than 600 participants from 40 countries. Russia, along with the Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute, was represented by the Central Institute of Aviation Motors, the Research Institute of Aircraft Equipment, Samara State University and the Moscow Aviation Institute.

29 International Congress ICAS-2014 will be held at the proposal of the Central AeroHydrodynamic Institute (TsAGI) in St. Petersburg in 2014. This will be the first time that Russia has hosted a prestigious Air and Space Congress of this caliber.
