This Special Issue is cooperating with the 9th EASN International Conference on Innovation in Aviation & Space (https://easnconference.eu/home), which will take place in Athens, Greece from the 3rd until the 6th of September, 2019.
This conference will act as a forum where innovative ideas, breakthrough concepts, and disruptive technologies are presented, while in parallel be the place for disseminating the knowledge and results achieved in the frame of research projects of the aviation and space field. The 9th EASN International Conference will include a number of Plenary Talks by distinguished personalities of the European aviation and space sectors from academia, industry, research community, and policymakers. It will also include Thematic Sessions, along with Technical Workshops where evolving ideas, technologies, products, services, and processes will be discussed. The identification of possible synergies and interactions with other sectors (e.g., automotive) will be a key aspect of the event.
Furthermore, the conference is expected to be a major European dissemination and exploitation event of aviation & space-related research. The majority of currently running research projects will exploit the 3-day technical program to present their activities and achieved goals, discuss current trends and future needs of aviation & space-related research and try to identify possible synergies with each other. Additionally, a number of policy development projects will also take the floor to present the strategic priorities of the European aviation sector with regard to the challenges of FlightPath2050 and the expected “Horizon Europe” Framework Programme.
Authors of outstanding papers related to Aviation & Space are invited to submit extended versions of their work to this Special Issue for publication.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Aerospace is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
