45th AMS – COVID 19 Update – 2nd April

Message from Ed Boesiger & Jonathan Wood,  AMS Organizing Committee Members, Lockheed Martin Space

Dear Aerospace Mechanisms Community,

As we stated in a previous email, we have decided to postpone the 45th Aerospace Mechanisms Symposium in light of the COVID 19 situation.

So in this different year, we will hold it at a completely different time – The symposium will now be held 2 Dec through 4 Dec, 2020. The symposium program will be unchanged, except for some Holiday happenings around us. We hope you will be able to attend on this revised date. Please review the information below for additional details.  The www.aeromechanisms.com website is quickly being updated with the new program and hotel links.


  • If you have not yet registered, and wish to attend, please visit aeromechanisms.com and register for the symposium
  • If you have already registered, and still wish to attend, do nothing; your registration will remain in force
  • If you have already registered and can not attend, email ronemancini@gmail.com. We will provide a full refund with no cancellation charge through 1 May 2020

Hotel Reservations:

The symposium is being held at the same Omni Hotel as orginally planned.  If you have made a reservation for a room at the hotel, that reservation has been cancelled. Use the new hotel registration link (https://www.omnihotels.com/hotels/houston/meetings/aerospace-mechanisms-symposium-11302020) provided at aeromechanisms.com to create a new reservation. IMPORTANT: Your hotel reservation will not be moved by the hotel, you must cancel and re-book.


Classes will be moved as well. Please contact the class provider for more details on the specific class you registered for. Contact info for the classes can be found at aeromechanisms.com.


To our valued authors: If you are unable to attend the new date, please ask a co-author or colleague to present on your behalf. If you will not be able to attend, please contact jonathan.p.wood@lmco.com or ed.boesiger@lmco.com

Thanks for your cooperation. We wish you good health and safety during this uncertain time.

On behalf of the AMS committee,

Ed Boesiger & Jonathan Wood
