On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to the International Symposium on Sustainable Aviation (ISSA), which will be firstly held in Istanbul, Turkey on 29 May - 1 June 2016.
Aviation is considered as one of the major sources of environmental problems and considered a prominent cause of sustainability. Future trends in aviation could constitute a major impediment to having sustainable development in economic, social and environmental perspectives. Sustainable aviation is a long term strategy aiming to offer innovative solutions to the challenges facing the aviation industry.
As we are in an era in which there is a continuous progress in aviation, we would like to invite researchers, scientists, engineers, practitioners, policy makers, and students to this international Symposium to exchange information, present new technologies and developments, and discuss the future direction, strategies and priorities in the field of sustainability. ISSA aims to handle a broad range of aviation-related issues with particular emphasis on environmental problems associated with sustainability.
ISSA will include several keynote presentations, specialized sessions, and oral and poster presentation sessions from the participants on different subjects related to sustainability on aviation.
Istanbul is the most beautiful, oldest and largest (second largest in the Middle East and the fifth-largest city in the world) city of Turkey.
We have planned several social events including visits to museums, parks, Turkish baths and other historical places. You will also have chance to taste delicious meals such as Turkish and Ottoman Cuisine.
We look forward to welcoming you to this remarkable event in May 2016.
