Associated with  Mid-Atlantic Section

The Mid-Atlantic Section of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is organizing the AIAA Young Professionals, Students, and Educators (YPSE) Conference, to be held February 3rd through February 4th. The conference is scheduled to be virtual this year.

We are looking for 20 minute technical presentations in any area of interest to the aerospace community by young professionals (age 35 and under), graduate, undergraduate, high school students and educators. Presentations will be scored on various criteria including ability to convey impact of work, demonstrate knowledge of the field, methodologies, communication and more. Awards will be given to exceptional presentations in the various categories listed above.

This is an excellent opportunity to share your work with the aerospace community and learn more about the innovative work of fellow aerospace enthusiasts!

This year, the Mid-Atlantic Section is partnering with the AIAA Women of Aeronautics and Astronautics (WoAA) to bring new programming to YPSE! WoAA is an AIAA organization dedicated to the support and empowerment of marginalized genders in the aeronautic and astronautic fields and is facilitating a new track at this year's YPSE conference: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). We are looking for presenters who want to share their story and speak on topics including but not limited to improving DEI in Aerospace, dealing with imposter syndrome/burnout, authenticity, empowerment and outreach, intersectionality etc. We know this is a broad track; we want you all to have the freedom to speak on whatever you are passionate about within DEI. For questions, contact aiaa.midatlantic+YPSE@gmail.com.
