Conference Overview

The auditorium

The Auditorium

ESA and Airbus Defence and Space are proud to announce the 17th bi-annual European Space Mechanisms and Tribology Symposium 2017 in the United Kingdom. It will be held in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, and will be organised by Airbus Defence and Space, Europe’s largest Space company.

The symposium will be held at the University of Hertfordshire’s de Havilland campus in Hatfield from the 20th-22nd September 2017 and will welcome Space mechanism professionals and industry leaders from around the globe.

Held bi-annually, ESMATS alternates in collaboration with its sister event in the USA – The Aerospace Mechanisms Symposium.

ESMATS has come to be recognised as the premier vehicle for Mechanisms Engineers, experienced and new recruits, to come together to discuss and celebrate their successes and lessons learnt, with a view to pooling their knowledge for the betterment of this unique community and the European Space industry as a whole.

Hatfield University

The Street

The 2017 symposium will encompass 2.5 days of exhibition and conference proceedings in the University of Hertfordshire’s state-of-the-art auditorium and will finish with a prestigious half day tour of the Airbus Defence and Space manufacturing facilities and Mars Yard in Stevenage. The gala dinner will be an Elizabethan style banquet at the historical Hatfield House.

For those wishing to attend training courses on the Monday and Tuesday prior to the symposium, please view the training section of the website. These courses will also be held in the same building as the symposium and come highly recommended.

We look forward to welcoming you to the UK!
