The 2nd ARF and the 4th IBRCRT

May 8, 2013


Dear colleagues,

It is my great pleasure, on behalf of the ARF International Executive Committee and the ARF 2013 Organizing Committee, to invite you to submit your papers and attend The 2nd Asian/Australian Rotorcraft Forum (ARF) and The 4th International Basic Research Conference on Rotorcraft Technology (IBRCRT) to be held at Tianjin, China on September 08-11, 2013 and to be hosted by Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics (NUAA), China.

This forum and conference, jointly sponsored by ARF International Executive Committee, Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, AVIC Helicopter, The American Helicopter Society (AHS) International, and The Chinese Society for Aeronautics and Astronautics as well, will strive to bring together the professors, scientists, engineers and students engaged in rotorcraft technologies and to provide an international opportunity for you to exchange the fresh ideas, recent developments, latest advances and applications in the area. The keynote lectures will be invited from the famous professors and scientists in the world. Every attendee who submits paper will have opportunity to give your presentation. Another exciting event during the forum and conference will be an international helicopter exposition - China Helicopter Exposition. During the exposition, you will enjoy a variety of exciting helicopter flight demonstrations.

The ARF will be held every year rotating among Australia, China, India, Japan and Korea, and sponsored by the ARF International Executive Committee. The 1st ARF had been successfully held on Feb 12-14, 2012 in Busan, Korea. The 2nd ARF together with the 4th IBRCRT will also be a great event in the field of helicopter. The local organizing committee from NUAA is doing the utmost to make the forum and conference a success. However, a successful meeting needs everyone's support. Here, I sincerely invite you to actively contribute and participate in this event.

Looking forward to seeing you at the 2nd ARF and 4th IBRCRT!
