Please note that we expect this event to draw a large audience and, as we are aware of a very large convention being held in downtown Montréal during the same week, we recommend that you make early travel arrangements and especially hotel reservations.

Please be advised that several hotels shown on the "Accommodation" link (see top right-hand corner of this page) are already sold out. However, there are many hotels on the list that still have availability, so please reserve as soon as possible.

Welcome to the website of the Global Air Traffic Management Forum on Civil/Military Cooperation which will be held at ICAO Headquarters in Montreal, Canada from 19 to 21 October 2009.

Forum theme: "Time to take it global: Meeting each other's needs without compromising the Mission".

The event is held in follow up to recommendations of the Eleventh Air Navigation Conference (Doc 9828, Rec. 1/2) concerning coordination with military authorities with a view to achieving enhanced airspace organization and management and as an integral supporting mechanism of the successful series of civil/military air traffic management summits instituted by the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA). It is also in follow up to ICAO Assembly Resolution A36 13, Appendix O, Coordination of civil and military air traffic wherein States were asked to take appropriate action to coordinate with military authorities to implement a flexible and cooperative approach to airspace organization and management.

The Forum is intended to create awareness among civil and military policy makers and regulators, civil and military air navigation service providers (ANSPs) and civil and military airspace users, on the need to improve civil/military cooperation and coordination in support of an optimum use of airspace by all users. The participation of civil aviation and military officials at the decision-making level is essential at this Forum.

Simultaneous interpretation into ICAO's working languages: Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish will be provided for the duration of the Forum.

Your participation is encouraged. For further information on the programme, registration, exhibition and sponsorship, and other arrangements for the Forum, please continue to visit this website which will be updated periodically.

While attending the Global Air Traffic Management Forum on Civil/Military Cooperation, military personnel on active duty are welcome to wear the uniform prescribed by their armed forces which is equivalent to business attire.
