The Institute of Space and Technology, Islamabad in collaboration with Belt and Road Aerospace Innovation Alliance (BRAIA) organized the Sixth International Conference on Aerospace Science & Engineering (ICASE) on November 12-14, 2019. The conference aimed to provide an international forum for the exchange of information and to promote cooperation and collaboration in the domain of space science, engineering technology and its applications.
Shehan Ali and Muhammad Muneer (Master students of Mechanical Engineering Department, the UOL) attended this conference and presented a research paper titled as “Development of a Small-Scale Composite Vertical-Axis Wind Turbine System”. The paper was an extraction from their thesis under the supervision of Associate Professor Dr. Khazar Hayat.
Mechanical Engineering Department (MED) highly encourages its graduate/postgraduate students and faculty to share their research accomplishments to the scientific community through their active participation in the prestigious national and international workshops, seminars and conferences like ICASE. Conferences provide a wonderful platform for students and faculty to enhance their vision and experience before national and international peer reviewers.
The conference had a whole of 62 sessions namely 23 Technical Sessions, 12 Workshops, 9 Panel Discussions, 7 Plenary Sessions, 3 Webinars, 4 Forum-360, Poster Session, Science at Glance and Meet the Scientist Sessions. A total of 85 research papers was presented in the conference in consort with 15 poster presentations.
International keynote speakers from eighteen countries namely; USA, Canada, Spain, France, Austria, Finland, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Sudan, Oman, UAE, Iran, Iraq, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Malaysia, Serbia and China participated in this event.
ICASE 2019 encompassed a diverse blend of thematic areas including Aeronautics and Astronautics, Satellite Technology & Applications, Mechanical Engineering for Aerospace Applications, Aerospace Materials Design and Engineering, Guidance, Navigation & Controls and GNSS, Astronomy, Astrophysics and Astrobiology, Remote Sensing, GIS & Space Applications, Mathematical & Statistical Modeling for Space Applications, Space Policy, Law & Management and Space Technology Education & Popularization.
