Themes Of Symposium

In line with the workshop theme we seek contributions that take a closer look at regional opportunities, sustainability challenges (at the global and local level) and innovative solution in the aviation sector. The main themes that the contributions should address are:

  • Regional opportunities through the aviation sector:
    • Role of aviation for economic growth and development
    • Infrastructure and human capital development
    • Regulatory regime change
  • Sustainability challenges specific to the aviation sector:
    • Environmental pollution
    • Competitive Business models
    • Industrial relations
    • Corporate social responsibility policies and practices
  • Innovations in the aviation sector:
    • Business model innovation
    • Service innovations
    • Product and process innovations

We particularly welcome contributions that represent different regional perspectives (MENA and European). While this will primarily involve different (ideally interdisciplinary) scientific perspectives (e.g. development economics, political economy, organization studies, international business & management or other disciplines) on the topics, the workshop is also very keen to invite policy makers, industry representatives and educators in the industry to share their views and insights. Finally, we will also specifically invite contributions from students and early scholars whose work will be presented in a poster session.
Participation in the conference is free of charge
Deadline for abstract submission 30 of September 2013
