19 August 2014

The 29th Congress of the International Council of Aeronautical Sciences — ICAS 2014 will start on September 7 in St. Petersburg. The largest scientific event in the aerospace industry will bring together the leading scientists and experts from around the world. The organizer of the ICAS 2014 is the Central Aero-Hydrodynamic Institute named after Professor N.E. Zhukovsky (TsAGI). The Congress is held with the support of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, St. Petersburg City Administration, the United Aircraft Corporation, the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, the Union of Aircraft Manufacturers and the largest European aircraft equipment manufacturer — Airbus.

By mid-August, already more than 700 participants have registered through the ICAS 2014 website to take part in the Congress. The largest delegations are from Japan, China, Germany, France, Italy and the United States. Over 200 participants have registered from Russia, including specialists representing TsAGI, CIAM, MAI and other large research organizations and institutions of the country.

The congress program includes plenary lectures, 12 parallel sessions and 48 sections, technology tours, working meetings of the ICAS executive committee, talks about the prospects for cooperation.

At the initiative of the Russian party, this year’s congress program includes three new sections: “International Cooperation in the Field of Aeronautics Research in the Framework of European Programs,” “Fundamental research in Aeronautics,” and “History of Aeronautics.”

Another innovation of the ICAS 2014 is the use of modern touch screen technology for presentation of poster sessions and reports which are not included in the main Congress program. This presentation method will be used for the first time in the history of ICAS congresses.

In addition to the extensive scientific program, organizers of the Congress have provided for an interesting educational program: St. Petersburg tour, bridges-raising night city tour, night visit to the Hermitage, and country trips to Tsarskoye Selo and Peterhof Museums.
