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.

3rd GRF One Health Summit 2014
5-8 October 2014, Davos, Switzerland
The 3rd GRF One Health Summit will further develop and strengthen the One Health paradigm and its global movement. In particular this 3rd global gathering will focus on the added value of a global One Health approach and a stronger involvement of the private sector and policy.
The deadline for abstract submission is extended to 30 April 2014. Submit your abstract now on one of the conference topics.
European Biogas Association Conference
30 September - 2 October 2014, Alkmaar region, The Netherlands
The biannual European Biogas Conference covers a broad range of topics related to biogas, from production to utilisation, with plenty of room for networking between representatives from research, industry and production. There will be an exhibition and a poster session.
Topics include European policy issues, biomethane, digestate use, sustainability of biogas and bioeconomy. With this event we strive to unite biogas experience and share latest information on policies, industry developments, innovation and legislation.
ExpeER International Conference 2014
24-25 September 2014, Paris
The Earth's rapidly changing environment is putting critical ecosystem services at risk. There are many challenges involved in understanding global environmental changes, and in providing societies with the policy-relevant knowledge base to deal with them. These challenges will reach across many aspects of scientific endeavour.
In this context the Experimentation in Ecosystem Research conference will provide a platform for discussions on cutting-edge technological tools, large-scale integrative experimental design, technical constraints, data access and last but not least ecosystem modelling. The conference will attract speakers and delegates from around the world and will offer opportunities to reinforce global cooperation. Main topics Grand challenges: With the current set of Experimental Research infrastructures in ecosystem science, do we have the capacity to tackle the grand challenges of today and tomorrow? In vitro and in natura : How realistic are they, and how they can be better linked? Technologies: Which emerging technologies could enhance (or are needed for) the performance and services offered by our RIs? Data: Towards an e-infrastructure for ecosystem research - challenges and opportunities Modelling: How accurate is our capacity to forecast and upscale, and what is missing? How can we communicate uncertainty? How do we strike the right balance between modelling and experiments?
