IAVSD is a not-for-profit organization aiming to operate at the highest possible scientific and technical level. IAVSD 2023 is being organized by the National Research Council Canada (a branch of the Canadian federal government), Virginia Tech and Carleton University. The financial aim is to hold the Symposium with zero net profit, while abiding by the financial rules and regulations. Social events are being partially subsidized by our generous sponsors. Any residual funds from the Symposium will be spent in the form of awards that will be presented at the Awards and Closing Ceremony on August 25, 2023.


Included in the registration fee is regular IAVSD membership until the next IAVSD Symposium. Read more about the International Association for Vehicle System Dynamics here >>
