14-17 May 2018
Phoenix
, AZ

Overview:

This year’s Annual Forum takes place May 14-17, 2018 at
the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona; technical
paper sessions will begin on May 15. With vertical flight
advancing more quickly than it has in decades, the Forum will be
focusing on The Future of Vertical Flight Advances in technologies
such as autonomy, coupled computational fluid dynamics (CFD)/
computational structural dynamics (CSD), innovations in composites
and materials, advanced flight controls and more capable sensors
are making dramatic impacts. As advanced air vehicle designs like
the Joint Multi-Role (JMR)/Future Vertical Lift (FVL) continue to
develop, new commercial rotorcraft advance towards certification,
and transformative electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL)
aircraft begin to take flight, this coming year promises to validate
numerous advanced technologies and programs showcasing The
Future of Vertical Flight.

illustrations (with samples), and include a summary of important
conclusions.   Abstract acceptance will be based in part on the
submitter’s prior history in following through with previous
commitment.  Papers presented previously are not eligible for
consideration. One author may present no more than two papers
at Forum 74.  The AHS Forum is open to an international audience.
As such, it is the policy of the AHS that all papers submitted for
inclusion in the Proceedings and all presentations made at the
Forum be completely unrestricted.

Abstracts must be submitted no later than October 16, 2017
