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.


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.
