This year’s theme is focused on building partnerships and sharing advancements in Aerospace Medicine. This is the largest conference for this audience outside the USA. Last year, there were 170 attendees from 16 different countries.
This is the 30th year that this conference and technical course have provided excellent opportunities to exchange information and establish stronger working relationships with colleagues from many nations.
The objective of this event is to present state-of-the-art knowledge and practices from a group of expert lecturers to an audience of international Aerospace Medicine and Human Systems Integration specialists.
Risks and advantages of various approaches will be compared, with the aim of recommending best practices for the future of Aerospace Medicine and how to carry them out successfully.
The specific goal of this activity is to facilitate broader understanding of the potential risks associated with Aerospace Medicine and Human Systems Integration technologies—primarily in aircrew settings, but also in other, more general, operational medicine settings.
In order to continue the success we have enjoyed in previous years, we encourage you to invite interested individuals from your medical institutions to attend.
