    • The presenter must provide an extended abstract (one or two pages in length) as per the Extended Abstract Template provided on the AAS website. The extended abstracts should be emailed to Kai Wang (, the Committee Chair, by 5 p.m. CDT on July 1, 2021.
    • The presenter must be an undergraduate or graduate student at the time of extended abstract submission deadline (i.e. on July 1, 2021), and the presentation must be based on the research conducted while he/she was a student.
    • Each presenter is allowed to submit at most one abstract for the competition.
    • The presentation must be in an area relevant to aviation research or practice (e.g. airline operations, air traffic management, urban aerial mobility, unmanned aerial systems).
    The winner will be chosen based on both the quality of the presentation itself and the extended abstract. We look forward to an exciting set of submissions this year! For further information, please contact Kai Wang at
