[DMANET] CFP INAIR 2015 - International Conference on Air Transportation


INAIR 2015
International Conference on Air Transportation
Innovation Challenges Towards a Sustainable and Reliable Operation
12th -- 13th November 2015
Amsterdam, The Netherlands


Air Transport is nowadays mainly covered in topics like airport planning (infrastructure development); the criteria of success are defined in terms of number of runways, apron stands, terminal facilities etc. Airport capacity shortage requires optimal usage of existing infrastructure. The impact of climate change and resource shortage increases the complexity. Aviation has to optimise its overall capacity usage within even tighter constraints. Resilience of the aviation system is becoming a big issue; reliability of schedules and procedures for all stakeholders involved (including passengers and local communities in the airports neighbourhood) is at stake. Disturbances due to severe weather, technical issues etc. might cause huge delays and costs. Solving these challenges require a mind shift towards changing and optimising processes, innovation in infrastructure usage, logistics and cooperation between partners.The interaction between researchers and industry representatives is a key in order to come up with innovative solutions for future challenges. The INAIR Conference is intended to be a forum where Industry representatives and Academia meet to exchange ideas and set up common challenges.

Industry representatives and researchers from research institutions, universities, airlines, air traffic service providers and industry are invited to submit extended abstracts or full draft papers (limited to 6 pages) presenting results of their work. Industry representatives are welcome to send the abstract of the topic considered for presentation. Academic Papers will be reviewed based on the problem addressed, as well as the approach and methods applied in current problems of aviation industry. Selected papers will be included in the Proceedings of the conference.

Areas of interest are, but not limited to:

- Optimization of processes in aviation
- Capacity & efficiency improvement
- Airport congestion
- Airport capacity forecast
- Business intelligence for airport
- Multi-Airport Systems
- ATC/AIRPORT systems
- Small and regional airport development
- Airlines
- Air Traffic Control
- Lean MRO
- Development of incident investigation

Contributions can be uploaded to the Easychair system until 28 August 2015:

28 August 2015: Abstract Submission
11 September 2015: Notification of acceptance
