ICHPAV21 Participate

as a speaker

This page will give you all the useful information you need to know if you want to participate in the congress as a speaker, offer a presentation, develop a “poster” or share your experience as a designer or pilot of a muscle-propelled machine. human, whether on land, in the air or in the water.

Call for presentations, articles, demos, feedback & “posters”…

Due to the health situation, the deadline for submitting proposals for participation (conference, presentation, article, model, poster, etc.) for this congress has been extended until January 15, 2022.

The objective of the International Conferences on Human-Powered Aircraft and Vehicles (ICHPAV) is to bring together all those interested in the advances and applications of human-powered vehicles and more specifically aircraft systems (researchers, engineers and practitioners ).
Ten sessions will be organized, covering different aspects of human-powered transport, including technological engineering, databases, new experiences, personal adventure in competition or human-powered transport engineering, new materials, the design of human-powered aircraft, energy efficiency, energy autonomy…

The ICHPAV is freely accessible
for all those intersted in these subjects. All presentations will be made live in a dedicated space (by zoom or via Youtube).

Production of a collection and presence of an interactive real-time 3D reception hall presenting certain HPA-type vehicles in 3D.

At the end of the congress, a book (collection) will be published with the articles of the voluntary participants who will propose their contribution to one of the scientific committees (sciences, applied engineering, schools or universities, etc.). This book may be freely available.

If you have a 3D digital model of your device, it can be displayed in the main room in 3D so that visitors can discover it.

We hope to be able to count you among the speakers of this international event.
You can submit your title and a 2-3 line abstract, or ask your questions by email directly to:

A French muscle-powered submarine, the Scubster is an innovative oceanographic exploration vehicle.

You can offer 2 types of presentations:
The conference (presentation) of results or the presentation of positioning.

What is a conference (presentation) of results?
A results presentation presents completed research/design/manufacturing work and/or validated results and/or experiments and/or adventure stories.

What is a position paper?
A position paper presents a defensible opinion on an issue. The purpose of a position paper is to convince the audience that your opinion is valid and worth hearing, without the need to present completed research and/or validated results.
