Organized by Air transport department of University of Zilina within the framework of Innovation Challenges Towards a Sustainable and Reliable Operation
The INAIR conference is a forum in which Industry and Academia meet to exchange ideas and set up common challenges. The interaction between researchers and industry representatives is key in order to come up with innovative solutions for the challenges of the future. INAIR 2016 will be hosted by the Air transport department in Vienna on November 10-11, 2016.
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 optimize 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 neighborhood) 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 optimizing processes, innovation in infrastructure usage, logistics and cooperation between partners.
Innovation in aviation is often a challenge that needs to be addressed while respecting the inherent technical restrictions without compromising safety and security. The topic of the 2016 INAIR conference is to address this challenge and the subjects will try to answer the following questions among others:
