AIAA: Region V Paper Conference
April 3 @ 5:00 am - April 5 @ 9:00 pm$50.00
The American Institute of Aeronautics (AIAA) at the University of Minnesota is hosting this year’s Region V Paper Conference! To see the research that has progressed between several colleges, network, and enjoy great food, please consider attending this event as a way of supporting students and to celebrate their accomplishments.
This conference, hosted annually by different AIAA Region V chapters, allows students to present their research and technical papers in a public setting. The last time the U of MN hosted the conference, eight schools were represented with 26 different presentations on a range of aerospace-related projects. These presentations were judged by professionals and were awarded various different cash prizes. This year, we anticipate 25 different presentations.
Registration cost includes the ability to attend all events, including research presentations, tours, lunches, and banquet.
