The XXXV Congress of the International Scientific and Technical Organisation for Gliding (OSTIV) will be held from 18 - 23 July, 2021. Depending on the pandemic situation during July 2021, the Congress will be organized as a virtual meeting, or it will take place at the site of the 36th FAI World Gliding Championships in the 18m-, 20m-, and Open Class, in Stendal-Borstel, Germany. The Congress addresses all scientific and technical aspects of soaring flight including motorgliding, hanggliding, paragliding, ultralight sailplanes and aeromodeling.
At this time, there is significant uncertainty about the future development of the Coronavirus disease. Depending on the situation during July 2021, the Congress will be organized as a virtual meeting, or it will take place at the site of the 36th FAI World Gliding Championships in the 18m-, 20m-, and Open Class, in Stendal-Borstel, Germany. The option of an attended event will be only considered, if the international situation and local regulations allow for safe travel to the Congress and safe meeting procedures.

The OSTIV Board will decide about the appropriate Congress mode of operation by the end of May 2021.
