24–26 May 2005
Hyatt Regency Monterey Monterey, California, USA
Aircraft Noise and Emissions Reduction Symposium
& sponsorship prospectus
Following the successful 2002 meeting on Aircraft Noise Reduction held in Arcachon, France, the Association Aéronautique et Astronautique de France (AAAF) and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) agreed to jointly develop a high-level, multidisciplinary technical symposium that brings together leading engineers, scientists, researchers, government and civil aviation officials, industry, and policymakers from Europe and the United States as well as other regions of the world to discuss the topics and issues of aircraft noise and emissions reduction. The Symposium is being supported by the Partnership for AiR Transportation Noise and Emissions Reduction (PARTNER), the Center of Excellence (COE) for Aircraft Noise and Aviation Emissions Mitigation. The COE was established September 2003 to foster breakthrough technical, operational, and workforce capabilities enabling quieter and cleaner aircraft and to enhance the understanding of aerospace environmental issues. The Federal Aviation Administration, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, and Transport Canada co-sponsor this partnership. The objective of the Symposium is to review challenges and opportunities faced by manufacturers, local communities, air carriers, airports, governmental institutions, and non-governmental organizations to address noise and emission abatement and to develop holistic solutions that will ameliorate the pressures associated with air traffic growth. The format of the AIAA/AAAF Aircraft Noise and Emissions Reduction Symposium will be comprised of a series of invited talks in a single-session, panel format and include leading experts in the field. The program will feature balanced representation from Europe, the United States, and other regions of the world.
The Symposium will be held at the Hyatt Regency Monterey. The hotel is located five minutes from Monterey airport, 75 minutes from San Jose airport, and two hours from San Francisco airport. The hotel is located eight blocks from the beach and less than 10 minutes from Carmel. The magnificent Monterey Peninsula has been called the greatest meeting of land, sea, and sky and is recognized as an ideal vacation and business destination. This beautiful seaside community combines all the charm of a small town with an endless variety of recreational and cultural activities. Local attractions include the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Carmel, 17-Mile Drive, Big Sur, world-renowned Monterey County wineries, unique shops and galleries, and a spectacular assortment of parks and natural areas.

Plan now to participate in the Symposium and to help develop an action plan to address the challenges in aircraft noise and emissions.
The Symposium topics chosen will examine the problem from a global perspective and promote a systems approach to design solutions. These solutions will combine a fundamental understanding of current and future research initiatives relative to the technologies used to manufacture aircraft as well as source noise/emission control, operational procedures, land use practices, and market- based options to reduce noise
Topics to be addressed during the Symposium include:
Historical Perspective and Future Direction
Why is it important that we address this issue? Where are key bottlenecks/challenges for research? Can technology alone provide a way forward? How will the Symposium help meet the challenges?
What challenges do the stakeholders face? Panel will include representatives from Airports, Airlines, Air Navigation Service Providers, and Communities.
Noise and Emissions Technology
What are the noise and emissions challenges? What are the short- and long-term solutions? What are the manufacturers doing to address these challenges? Panel will include representatives from various Airframe and Engine Manufacturers and Research Institutes/Facilities.
Operational Procedures for Noise and Emissions Reduction
What are we currently doing? What do we expect to achieve? What do we need to achieve these goals? and emissions and measure them against the overarching challenges and needs faced by the aviation community. Each of these competing vitalities must be balanced within a framework of sound governmental regulation and public policy that addresses the concerns of a myriad of stakeholders. What are the future prospects? Panel will include representatives from Manufacturers, Airlines, Air Navigation Service Providers, and Research Institutes/Facilities.
Assessing and Managing the Problem
What are the scientific challenges and how do we overcome them? Speakers will address the following issues: • Quality of Life: Health Effects • Noise • Emissions • Monitoring • Noise & Emissions • Modeling
Panel will include representatives from Government Agencies, Research Institutes/Facilities, and Leading Consulting Firms.
The Way Forward: Toward an Optimum Air Transportation System
How do we: Develop integrated solutions and synergies? Bring technologies and operations together in a systems approach? Determine the proper “balance” of investments? The outcome of discussions and presentations during the Symposium include a white paper that addresses the issues and charts a future course of action.
American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) www.aiaa.org
AIAA is the largest professional society devoted to the progress of engineering and science in aviation and space. AIAA’s mission is to advance the arts, sciences, and technology of aerospace, and to nurture and promote the professionalism of those engaged in these pursuits. The organization was established in 1963 through the merger of two organizations, the Institute of Aeronautical Sciences and the American Rocket Society.
Association Aéronautique et Astronautique de France (AAAF)
AAAF is the professional member society in France that is focused on aeronautics and space. Members include engineers and technicians, researchers, students and professors of aerospace disciplines; and suppliers or users of aerospace applications. AAAF was formed by the union in 1971 of French Association from the Engineers and Techniciens of Aeronautics and Space founded in 1945, and of the French Company of Astronautics, founded in 1955.
Joint Planning Committee
The program for the AIAA/AAAF Aircraft Noise and Emissions Reduction Symposium was developed by a Joint Planning Committee comprised of representatives from Europe and the United States.
