The trend in Europe, and indeed all around the world, indicates that young graduates are reluctant to invest their time and knowledge in Research and Development, preferring instead the more dynamic career possibilities offered within industry. Research in air transport has not been immune to this situation and consequently there is a necessity to foster certain skill sets and also to improve levels of international collaboration. In so doing, the Research and Development community and particularly those sponsoring the work, will benefit from more targeted research, reduced overlap and optimisation of capital expenditure.
Against this background, the University of Zilina Air Transportation Engineering Department (Slovakia), in collaboration with EUROCONTROL, is organising an international conference to bring together young researchers from Eastern European countries and all over the world in order to share their work in a friendly and supportive environment. This conference, taking place in the heart of the ‘new Europe’, where significant growth in the volume of air transport is expected in the coming years aims to address
a wide range of research topics from the physics of flight through to issues of human factors. The conference will also place considerable emphasis on the development of future concepts and will seek innovative ideas in the domain of future airport developments and more integrated transport networks.
Within such an environment, researchers will be able to share their experiences, expand their professional network and consequently to improve their work. All submitted conference papers will be reviewed by
a number of prominent members and decision makers within the air transportation community. All selected papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference.
