1st International Symposium on Sustainable Aviation (ISSA-I)

31 May - 3 June 2015, Istanbul, Turkey

The aviation industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. It can be viewed as making a positive contribution to sustainability. ISSA, international, multi-disciplinary symposium, aims to address current issues in the field of aviation such as improving aircraft fuel efficiency, fostering use of biofuels, minimising environmental impact, mitigating GHG emissions and reducing of engine and airframe noise.

The Symposium welcomes a large number of topics such as: Sustainable aviation and aerospace vehicle Sustainable aircraft, helicopters, missiles, launchers and satellites design, technological change, innovation, research and development Mathematical modeling, numerical/experimental methods, optimization Green aircraft Green airlines Green airports Green engine Green aerospace vehicle Renewable energy sources; alternative/green aviation fuels Energy recovery systems, alternative/renewable/clean energy technologies Life cycle design and life cycle assessment; cost efficiency; waste / recycling Environmental Modelling & Software Environmental impacts and measurement techniques: emissions/noise/radiation, global warming/climate change Mathematical modeling, numerical/experimental methods, optimization Air conditioning and refrigeration applications of aircrafts Energy, exergy, performance analysis, flight mechanics and computational fluid dynamics Energy Exergy Performance analysis Flight mechanics Computational fluid dynamics Propulsion technologies for aerospace vehicles Combustion instabilities, innovative combustion technologies Mathematical modeling, numerical/experimental methods, optimization Avionics and auto control Avionics Auto control Aerospace vehicle materials, measurement techniques and sensors Design, management, planning, development Aerospace vehicle strategic planning, governmental legislation, policy-making Aviation management, fleet planning/scheduling; air traffic management; future air transport Airport design, management, planning, development Aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul; airworthiness, reliability/safety.


Invasive Alien Species – Czech contribution to challenges for European research and policies

3 June 2015, Brussels, Belgium

The aim of the conference is to discuss challenges related to the invasive alien species (IAS) and diseases in Europe and their impact on the development of EU policies in the field of agriculture and environment.

The complex issue of invasive alien species was recently addressed by the European Commission in the proposal for a Regulation on IAS. The Horizon 2020 programme tackles aspects of the need for sustainable food security, more resilient and resource efficient value chains, emerging crop diseases and integrated pest management.

The discussions among stakeholders and representatives from different EU institutions raised comments and challenges on how to implement the Regulation and what will be the impact and also the impact of the IAS on the agriculture.

The conference will present the policy view on the subject as well as stakeholders' views (researchers from the Czech Republic and other European countries dealing with IAS and diseases).


9th GEO European projects workshop

15-16 June 2015, Copenhagen, Denmark

Organised jointly by the Danish Meteorological Institute, the European Commission and the European Environment Agency, this workshop brings together European stakeholders interested in and actively contributing to the Global Earth Observations System of Systems (GEOSS).

Its timing has been set to maximise early insight and awareness of the new GEO Implementation plan for the next decade. Key features this year include the transition from the first to the second GEO ten-year implementation plan, the ambition to involve the private sector more closely in GEO, especially SMEs, and the need to develop the use of GEO data and information to respond more pro-actively to societal issues and challenges. The workshop will explore priorities for future flagship initiatives, foreseen to be strengthened in the next phase of GEO in order to fulfil GEO's ambition to provide information for decision making.

Online registration is compulsory, by 15th April 2015.

Product Lifetimes And The Environment (PLATE)

17-19 June 2015, Nottingham, UK

Nottingham Trent University is pleased to be hosting the first international conference to examine Product Lifetimes and the Environment (PLATE) in the context of sustainability. This ground-breaking event will include keynote presentations, discussion, debate and workshops, an exhibition and gallery of artefacts, and a gala dinner.

The conference will review current research on how and why increased product lifetimes have become an important element in resource efficiency, waste reduction and low carbon strategies for sustainability. Academic researchers, industry representatives and policy stakeholders will share knowledge and experience on the influence that product longevity has on environmental, economic and social sustainability.
