12 May 2016 - 16 May 2017, Salzburg, Austria
One of the great successes of the ECTS scientific programme over time has been due to the principle of bridging the gaps between translational research and clinical application.
The Scientific Programme Committee has continued to develop the programme based on this successful format and has created a stimulating and varied agenda. With more than 500 abstracts regularly submitted over recent years ECTS congresses are renowned for their high scientific quality and we expect the Salzburg meeting to be no exception.
We have also noticed an increase in submissions from further afield which shows us that the ECTS audience is definitely spreading well beyond Europe! There will be plenty of opportunities for you to showcase and discuss your work, with a significant proportion of time set aside for oral and poster presentations, which will include poster tours and e-poster options.

The Conference is addressed to the entire Aeronautics community, including Industrial and Research Organisations, SMEs and Academia.
It is intended to cover all topics in Aeronautics and Air Transport, including: Flight Physics, Aerostructures, Propulsion, Flight Mechanics, Integrated Design & Validation, Air Traffic Management, Airports, Human Factors, Innovative Concepts and Scenarios, Aircraft Avionics, Systems & Equipment.
Researchers with a keen interest in those fields will have an excellent opportunity for discussing, networking and creating synergies for future collaborations. The EASN events provide an opportunity for researchers to present their point of view, regarding specific research fields in Aeronautics and Air Transport, to a relative pan-European audience.
The structure of the 2016 Conference will emphasise into the enhancement of synergies between researchers through interactive sessions, therefore the Conference is designed to engage participants to be a part of a discussion rather than passive listeners.

S2M 2016 is a three days conference conjointly organised by the Faculty of Architecture, University of Lisbon, and The University of Manchester, with a wide variety of plenary and parallel sessions and inspiring keynote speakers, aiming to foster transdisciplinary research and innovation in the fields of manufacturing, design, architecture and construction, with a focus on a new culture of eco-design and innovation, towards smarter and sustainable manufacturing systems.
The European Commission recently adopted an ambitious strategy called Europe 2020 to spur a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, fostering knowledge, innovation, education and a digital society.
The innovation challenge will drive a global systemic transformation, bringing forward new business opportunities and fostering prosperity in a world of finite resources. A new culture of greater resource efficiency and disruptive innovation will require new technologies, processes and materials.
Moving towards a circular economy is a framework for future transformation, an opportunity to rethink and redesign the future to address today´s fundamental challenges, from how we use natural resources, to the way we design and manufacture products, through recycling and re-use towards a zero-economy waste and society.
S2M 2016 aims at developing a fruitful scientific exchange between academic and professionals with distinct backgrounds and skills, bringing together research, industry and economy professionals to explore and develop new design ideas for a more sustainable future, to identify novel resource efficient solutions crucial to decrease resource dependence and increase system resilience.
14-15 October 2016, London, United Kingdom
A fully interactive comprehensive symposium that covers all aspects of modern minimally invasive surgery. Providing all the elements to develop a successful advanced VATS programme including expert techniques. We will discuss the technical aspects of the most challenging procedures with international experts and share your most difficult cases with knowledgeable and skilled faculty.
This postgraduate course emphasises the use of video-based education and in-depth discussion of technical details.
We have 12 places for a Wetlab which you can now book alongside your VATS Symposium 2016 ticket. The wetlab is dedicated to hands on surgical training, development and assessment working closely with industry and National Health Service hospitals in Britain and Ireland.

Organised by the Co-FACTOR CSA. Smart industrial components – characterized by capabilities such as connectivity and communication, monitoring-data analysis based self-adaptability, optimization and learning – are at the tools to enable Industrie 4.0, the digitalization of manufacturing processes. Such tools are being developed in extensive R&D&I activities on national and international level. Yet, the state of development and maturity is widely dispersed.
In a roadmapping workshop with international experts from industry and academia, professionals form manufacturing and IT, representatives from associations, technology and business consultants will together map out the key research priorities in the area of smart industrial components and systems to feed back to the EC for future funding priorities. Also the prevalent non-technological and socio-economic aspects will be contemplated.
Goals of the day:
- Presentation and benchmarking of specific FoF smart components cases (from Co-FACTOR Cluster)
- Identification of R&D&I priorities for smart industrial components
- Elucidation of non-technical, socio-economic issues and priorities about smart components
Target group: - Professionals in the area of digitalization of industrial processes - Representatives from related associations and platforms across Europe - Technology transfer, engineering and business development experts and consultants - Community members/agents of FoF, IoT, Industrie4.0, etc.
The workshop will be held on 13 October 2016 in Brussels, just before the FoF Info Day (on 14 October). If you’re interested in participating, please register by sending an e-mail to email@example.com
Participation is limited to 25 people on a first come first served basis.
