5th CEAS Air & Space Conference

7-11 Sept 2015 Delft University of Technology

CEAS 2015 will be a joint event combining the 5th CEAS (Council of European Aerospace Societies) Air & Space Conference, the 12th European Workshop on Aircraft Design Education (EWADE) and the 5th Air Transport and Operations Symposium (ATOS).

CEAS 2015 will be a unique opportunity for aerospace industries, academia, organizations and associations to communicate, share and debate innovative concepts and technical solutions in the aerospace domain.
CEAS 2015 will promote the establishment of knowledge and technical networks with the aim of increasing European competitiveness in the field of aerospace. Participation from all major nations involved in aerospace across the world, a wide exhibition area, special sessions on selected topics and specific actions to facilitate students’ attendance will make CEAS 2015 one of the major European aerospace events.

CEAS 2015 will be hosted by the Netherlands Association of Aeronautical Engineers (NVvL) in close cooperation with the Delft University of Technology (DUT) and the Society of Aerospace Students DUT (VSV Leonardo da Vinci) on behalf of the CEAS community. CEAS is an organization bringing together European national aerospace societies for increased international strength. Today, CEAS comprises 16 member organizations with an outreach to roughly 35,000 professionals in aerospace. Since 2007, CEAS hosts biennial conferences on aeronautics in Europe.

The 12th European Workshop on Aircraft Design Education EWADE will be held during the CEAS 2015 conference. The workshop aims at enhancing collaboration between European lecturers concerned with aircraft design and discuss Aircraft Design problems from a research and education perspective (

On 10 September 2015, the EU-funded project AFLoNext 2nd generation active wing will organize a workshop as a partner in the CEAS 2015 conference. AFLoNext is a four-year integrated project (level 2) with the objective of proving and maturing highly promising flow control technologies for novel aircraft configurations. More details will come up soon! Meanwhile, feel free to visit our website at


ESWIRP achievements will be presented at the CEAS Air & Space Conference 2015.

The ESWIRP project ( has been funded by the European Framework Programme 7 to support the integration of and access to research infrastructure of pan-European interest. It has significantly enhanced the interoperability of 3 key world-class aeronautical wind tunnels, and harmonised, improved and optimised the scientific access conditions thereto: DNW-LLF, ETW and ONERA S1MA.

A central element of the project, besides networking and joint research activities, has been the transnational access (TNA), which has been provided to 4 consortia with a total of more than 100 scientists from 17 different nations.
