Aircraft Design


The education activity of
the Technical Committee
Aircraft Design (TCAD)
under CEAS


13th European Workshop on Aircraft Design Education
(EWADE 2017)

EWADE 2017 will be a Workshop at CEAS 2017. As such, EWADE 2017 will be part of the 6th CEAS Air & Space Conference, AEROSPACE EUROPE 2017, Bucharest, Romania, 16th - 20th October 2017. EWADE 2017 will take place during the 4th full conference day - 19th October 2017 (TBC). The workshop will discuss recent advances in aircraft design (research and teaching).

The workshop is organized by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dieter SCHOLZ, MSME from Hamburg University of Applied Sciences.

The workshop addresses a wider group in 2017. Everyone is invited from the EWADE and SCAD community together with all who want to contribute to the activity of the CEAS Technical Committee Aircraft Design (TCAD) under CEAS. The workshop is also announced at CEAS.

Contributors and visitors to EWADE 2017 will register for CEAS2017 as a "standard participant" as indicated here. Fees are 100 EUR. Please note the special conditions offered through EWADE 2017: If you are a presenter (only) at EWADE 2017, you only pay the very low price for a standard visitor (not presenting at CEAS).

Please apply informally for your presentation at EWADE 2017 via e-mail: e-mail  Dieter Scholz. Please apply with:

  • Name, affiliation, e-mail
  • Title of the presentation
  • Abstract (one paragraph of text)
  • Keywords
Applications for contributions will be accepted during the next months - until the few slots at EWADE2017 are filled. There is no formal deadline. Please make sure you get a slot. The race is open. Application will close whenever final information has to be delivered to CEAS.

Note: The CEAS submission deadline (31.03.2017) does not apply to EWADE 2017. In case you missed the CEAS deadline, EWADE still offers you the chance to schedule your presentation related to Aircraft Design - but hurry! If you also applied for a presentation at CEAS, please let us know, so that we can coordinate the two presentations for you.

We have observed, especially during EWADE 2015, that a few contributors to the EWADE session did not understand fully the meaning of embedding a workshop into a conference. The EWADE sessions are NOT just another offer to hop in, give a presentation, hop off, and leave. Presenting, listening, and discussing all belong together. We will start the EWADE workshop all together in the morning and leave all together in the evening. Authors who are scheduled for a later session will not speak, if they have not been present also in sessions earlier during the day (unless they have good excuse). As far as possible, there should not be clashes in the timetable between EWADE and CEAS for authors when they present their paper. By signing up for a presentation at EWADE 2017 you automatically declare to have understood this policy.

CC BY As explained here, the workshop presentations will not be peer reviewed and, hence, not published in the Conference Proceedings. Instead, the workshop presentations of EWADE 2017 will be published on this site (http://ewade.aircraftdesign.org). As in previous years, EWADE follows its Archiving Strategy. For proper online archiving, authors should include a one-paragraph abstract, keywords, the CC BY logo, and CC BY link into their presentation. Otherwise, authors will just use their respective institutional layout for their presentation. Authors will deliver their presentation as a PowerPoint-File or PDF/A-File during the workshop before presenting. "Information for Authors: Producing PDF/A" provides help on this. Authors agree that their EWADE contribution will be published by Dieter Scholz on their behalf with the CC BY license. Authors retain the copyright of their publications.

INCAS Bulletin EWADE presenters who would like to convert their presentation after the workshop into a peer-reviewed publication should follow the regular procedure of the Open Access Aerospace Journal INCAS Bulletin. I am prepared to coordinate the joint publication of such EWADE 2017 contributions. The INCAS Bulletin is one of the best Open Access Aerospace Journals that does not charge publication fees. See here on this page and here on this page.

We will align with the CEAS conference pattern. One session at CEAS spans two hours and includes 6 presentations (15 min. + 5 min.). Four sessions are scheduled each day. The number of presentations in a workshop session can be modified by the workshop organizer. For EWADE we could put 4 presentations in a session (20 min. + 10 min.). EWADE will start with an Introduction and traditionally ends with a Discussion. This means there are max. 14 slots for interested authors to present.



During CEAS 2015 the option was created to co-locate an EWADE already in 2016 with READ (in READ's sequence). Prof. Goraj as "father of READ/RRDPAE" invited all EWADE participants to Warsaw. In the end nothing came out of this idea. We remember, also the envisaged combination for 2011 of EWADE and READ did not materialize. It may be concluded that it is best for individuals to visit both EWADE and READ, but to leave the workshops otherwise unattached.

No host strongly volunteered to organize a separated EWADE 2017 (possibly during the traditional month of May).

A further discussion about 2017 showed preference for having EWADE co-located with some other event in 2017. CEAS 2017 was a good option.

In the end, SCAD also needed a home for 2017 and the opportunity was at hand to combine CEAS/EWADE/SCAD in 2017 in Bucharest, Romania.

Since the local university, the University Politehnica of Bucharest (UPB), has no history in teaching Aircraft Design, there was no professor from Bucharest available to chair an EWADE 2017. This initial condition for EWADE 2017 was much in contrast to EWADE 2015 in Delft and EWADE 2013 in Linköping - both with universities very active in Aircraft Design. The situation could be solved and an EWADE 2017 is on the way!

SEE YOU in BUCHAREST during EWADE on Thursday, 19th October 2017!!!
