Call for Papers - European Rotorcraft Forum 2023

The European Rotorcraft Forum (ERF) is one of the premier events in the rotorcraft community’s calendar, bringing together manufacturers, research centres, academia, operators and regulatory agencies to discuss advances in research, development, design, manufacturing, testing and operation of rotorcraft.

The 2023 Forum will be the 49th in a series of meetings, which take place annually across Europe, rotating around the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland and Russia. The first ERF was held in Southampton, England, in 1975, and the most recent in Winterhur (Switzerland) in 2022.

The International Committee invites prospective authors to submit abstracts of papers for presentation at the Forum. As in previous years, the Forum sessions will cover typical aspects of rotorcraft and will be held simultaneously in various conference rooms.

  • Acoustics
  • Flight Mechanics
  • Aerodynamics
  • History of Rotorcraft
