The International Forum on Aeroelasticity and Structural Dynamics (IFASD) is the most important event for engineers and researchers working in the fields of aeroelasticity and structural dynamics, since the first event of 1981. Following the success of the IFASD2015 held in Saint Petersburg, the 2017 forum will be held in Como, Italy. IFASD 2017 is intended to give a comprehensive snapshot of the current status of research activities and industrial practice in the fields of Aerospace Vehicle Aeroelasticity and Structural Dynamics, Multidisciplinary Analysis and Optimization, and Active and Adaptive Structures. It will provide an excellent opportunity for scientists and engineers from industry, research centers and universities to exchange knowledge and findings of current studies, and to discuss directions for future research. Contributions are sought covering all technical areas relating to aeroelasticity and structural dynamics. IFASD 2017 will be organized by the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology of Politecnico di Milano, with the support of AIDAA – Associazione Italiana di Aeronautica e Astronautica.
