IACAS History

IACAS History

The Israel Annual Conference on Aerospace Sciences (IACAS) has a remarkable history of fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange in the aerospace community in Israel and beyond.

Since its inception, IACAS served as a pivotal platform for experts, researchers, and professionals in the aeronautics and space industries and academia. Over six decades, IACAS has consistently brought together a diverse array of participants, including leading experts from both Israel and abroad, showcasing the significance of this conference on the global aerospace stage.


We recognize the importance of looking back on the long IACAS history to understand how far we have come. It also reminds us that aerospace sciences accomplishments did not happen overnight and that with hard work comes progress. Take a look back to past programs, guest speakers, and networking events – all stored in this archive.
