16-19 September 1996
Brighton, UK

The 22nd European Rotorcraft Forum (ERF) will be held in Brighton, UK from 16 to 19 September 1996, and is held in conjunction with the annual symposium of the European Helicopter Association (EHA).
The ERF will discuss advances in research, development, design, manufacturing, testing and operation of rotorcraft and it aims to foster the exchange of information between manufacturers, research establishments and operators.
This will be the 22nd such Forum since the event started in Southampton in 1975; it has subsequently been held annually in turn in the UK, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands and, since 1995, Russia.

Contributions are invited from authors to cover all aspects of rotorcraft technology.
The proposed sessions are as follows:

Abstracts for the ERF should be in English and between 500 and 1000 words long, with key figures and references to pertinent publications in existing literature.
Authors should identify in the abstract new or significant aspects of their work and state the session for which the abstract is intended.
The deadline date for receipt of abstracts is the 16th February 1996.

Please submit your abstract to your Country Representative, or if your country is not represented, to the UK Chairman:
