Call for Paper

The IEEE/CSAA International Conference on Aircraft Utility Systems (AUS) is the premier conference series presenting the state of the art and future perspectives of aircraft utility systems technologies, where experts, researchers, and academics share ideas and experiences surrounding frontier technologies, breakthroughs and innovative solutions and applications.

The aircraft utility systems including Hydraulics, Actuation, APU, Electrical system, Bleed system, Oxygen, Fuel, Ice protection, Cooling system, Fire protection, Safety system, etc. help the aircraft perform its main function. They are necessary and important for a safe conduct of the flight, and contributes to the overall mission capability of the aircraft.

The AUS2016 will be held on October 10-12, 2016 in Beijing, China. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia and to provide them with a platform to report on recent developments, achievements, deployments, technology trends and research results, as well as initiatives related to technologies and applications on aircraft utility systems and other vehicle on board functional systems.


Topics of interest include but are not limited to

  Systems Design of MEA at Aircraft Level

  Hydraulic Power

  Electrical Power

  Actuation Systems

  Environmental Control Systems

  Onboard Safety, Rescue and Protection System

  Landing Gear and Brake Control

  Fuel Inerting, Circulation and Management Systems

  Aviation Physiology and Ergonomics

  Fire Protection


  Test Equipment

  Ice protection (anti-icing and deicing)

  Auxiliary Power

  Utilities Management Systems

  Health Monitoring

  Other Vehicles Onboard Functional Systems



Contributed Papers

All papers will go through a rigorous reviewing process. Accepted papers will be presented in an oral presentation or poster presentations during the conference.In addition, all contributions will appear in full-length without distinction in the conference proceedings, and will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore and EI Compendex.


Organized Sessions

Organized session proposers should submit to the Organized Session Chairs or Secretariat a brief statement of purpose for the session as well as the abstract of the papers to be included. A typical organized session consists of 4 to 5 related papers.



The AUS2016 will be held on October 10 - 12, 2016 in Beijing, China.
