Notice to Participants
ICAO and McGill University are once again collaborating to host a Conference. In this instance, it will be held at the The Hilton Montreal Bonaventure Hotel
(across the street from ICAO Headquarters in Montréal),
and it will precede the ICAO 36th General Assembly (18 to 28 September 2007).
This Conference will bring together industry, governmental, scientific, legal, financial, and academic experts from around the world to address some of the most critical issues facing civil aviation in these times. Panels will address contemporary, cutting-edge issues in aviation technology, law and policy surrounding security, safety, and sustainable development, and attempt to plot a course forward.
Civil aviation faces enormous challenges. Concerns about safety, security and the environment relentlessly plague air transportation. Uncertainty surrounds insurance coverage and potential liability, government regulation and taxation. These developments impact airlines and all industries that rely on aviation – airports, aircraft manufacturers, suppliers, labour, and tourism.
Who Should Attend:
Professionals from civil aviation authorities and transport ministries, airlines, airports, air traffic services providers, aviation security providers as well as personnel of organizations directly involved in supporting the aviation business such as air cargo operators, insurers, risk managers, manufacturers, law and consulting firms, and international and regional organizations.
