Travel Awards 2018
On behalf of the Editor-in-Chief of Aerospace and the editorial team, we are pleased to announce that we are inviting applications for two Travel Awards (600 Swiss Francs each) for PhD students to attend a conference in 2018. The nominations and applications will be assessed by an Evaluation Committee presided by the Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Dr. Konstantinos Kontis.
Candidates should fulfill the following criteria:
- Applicants must be PhD students involved in aeronautics and astronautics areas.
- Applicants will present their research (oral presentation or poster) at a conference from July 2018 to June 2019.
Applicants are required to submit the following documents:
- Outline of current and future research.
- CV, including a complete list of publications.
- The conference you will attend and the abstract that will be presented (list the conference name and its website).
- A letter of recommendation from the supervisor, research director or department head which also confirms the applicant’s status as PhD student.
Please apply by clicking the button above before 30 April 2018. The winners will be announced on the homepage of Aerospace in June 2018.
Aerospace established the Best Paper Awards to recognize its best published original research articles.
Nominations were selected by the Editorial Office of Aerospace based on the number of citations, views and downloads from the website. All research articles published in 2017 were eligible for consideration. The selection committee was chaired by the Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Dr. Konstantinos Kontis, and supported by the Editorial Board Members. They examined each paper and expressed their recommendations for the ranking of the “Aerospace Best Paper Awards” 2017.

Travel Awards 2017
On behalf of the Evaluation Committee, I am pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Aerospace Travel Awards.
Malte Merk, a PhD student at the Technical University of Munich, whose research focuses on identification of combustion noise and flame dynamics of confined turbulent flames. He is planning to present his work “Quantitative Comparisons between LES Predictions and Experimental Measurements of Sound Pressure Spectra in a Conned Swirl Combustor” at the AIAA 2017: Propulsion and Energy.
Vittorio Memmolo, a PhD student at the University of Naples Federico II, whose research focuses on Structural Health Monitoring of aerospace composite structures using reliable wave propagation methods. He is planning to present his work “Advanced Damage Detection in Stiffened Composites Using Distributed Sensors” and “Acousto-Ultrasonic Investigation on Composites for Electro Mechanical Impedance Method Assessment” at the 20th International Conference of Composite Structures.
The awards consist of 600 Swiss Francs each towards attending these conferences.
It was a difficult decision with such high quality applications for the awards and we would like to thank all applicants for submitting their diverse and thought-provoking presentations. We congratulate the winners for their accomplishments.
