The 7th UTIAS International Workshop on Aviation and Climate Change will be held on May 19-21, 2021, at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The workshop aims to stimulate dialogue among academia, government, and industry toward finding technological solutions to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from aviation.
The primary focus of this workshop is on technological and scientific issues. Our goal is to bring together some of the world’s leading experts in this area in order to exchange ideas, establish research priorities, and identify opportunities for collaboration.
Participation in the workshop is by invitation only.
The primary subject areas of relevance to the workshop are:
- Aircraft design
- Engine design
- Alternative fuels
- Atmospheric science
After the event, presentations will be added as they are received from speakers.
