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.

Horizon 2020: Transforming Global Challenges into Opportunities for Growth
Growth and Jobs have to become the new mottos of the EU. In line with the priorities of, and in the framework of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the EU, TECHITALY 2014 offers a unique opportunity to mobilise public and private sectors to transform global challenges into economic opportunities.
Experts will discuss, during three different roundtables, on the most advanced approaches to three selected topics (cyber security, healthy ageing, raw materials) of high impact for European society and industry. Special attention will be paid to innovation processes, leading edge technologies and, where necessary, on requests of new legislative frameworks.
CO2-based Chemicals Production using Industrial Biotechnology
24 September 2014, Lyon, France
The BIO-TIC project has organised this workshop with the aim to identify technological, non-technological and market hurdles for the uptake of industrial biotechnology in CO2 based chemicals production and develop recommendations and solutions to overcome the identified hurdles. Input from market, policy and technological experts is crucial to help us develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry and further build on the roadmaps.
CO2 is increasingly being considered by many as a commodity rather than a waste product. The largest current use for CO2 is currently in enhanced oil recovery. However, CO2 holds great potential as a feedstock for chemicals production using IB processes, especially in the EU where the research base is strong and where there is an abundance of CO2 available. CO2 is not part of the food chain so avoids any issues over food v fuel. However, public perception, and logistical and cost challenges in terms of CO2 transport and distribution could hamper the potential of CO2 to be used for chemicals and substantial R&D is needed to bring many opportunities to fruition.
The International Conference on Education Technologies and Computers (ICETC2014)
22-24 September 2014, Lodz, Poland
The conference aims to enable researchers to build connections between different digital applications. The event will be held over three days, with presentations delivered by researchers from the international community, including presentations from keynote speakers and state-of-the-art lectures.
5th EuCheMS Chemistry Congress
31 August - 4 September 2014, Istanbul, Turkey
The biannual EuCheMS Chemistry Congress is a major scientific event where the latest progress in all areas of chemistry will be presented by eminent speakers from all over the world. Two of the highlights of this 5th edition of the ECC will be the European Commission Joint Research Centre session as well as a session with Prof. Bourguignon, President of the European Research Council.
