1 08.30Registration 09.30Welcome address from Paul Robinson, Director of Green Aviation Forum, Imperial College London Session 1Chair: Lord Julian Hunt, Emeritus Professor of Climate Modelling, University College London British Airways' Carbon Reduction Strategy Willie Walsh, CEO, British Airways Mr Walsh's presentation will describe the aviation industry's overall commitment to participate in the global reduction of CO 2 emissions. He will then describe in more detail how British Airways will meet its overall target to reduce its net CO 2 emissions by 50% by 2050 through operating efficiencies, new technology including new aircraft, engines and biofuels and will also describe the role that emissions trading will play Short introduction to poster display: Low drag Jonathan Morrison, Professor of Experimental Fluid Mechanics, Imperial College London 10.35Coffee break Session 2Chair: Ferri Aliabadi, Head of Department of Aeronautics, Imperial College London Green Aeroengines Ric Parker, Director of Research and Technology, Rolls-Royce Since the invention of the jet engine, huge leaps have been made in efficiency, reduction of emissions and reduction of noise. Rolls-Royce Trent engines power the latest major airliners. Each sets new records for low noise, fuel efficiency per passenger and gaseous emissions. Looking to the future, advanced aero-engine technology will be needed in order to achieve the exacting targets which the industry has underwritten The Future by Airbus Axel Krein, Senior VP, Research and technology, Airbus Air transport is vital for the world economy; it generates wealth and demand for air travel will continue to grow. But in times when natural resources are becoming rare, aviation is facing significant challenges to secure future growth. Airbus, together with its partners, is preparing the future by developing aircraft technologies which are directed towards meeting future needs of society Short introduction to poster display: Future engine technologies William Jones, Professor of Combustion, Imperial College London 12.45Lunch Programme

2 Session 3Chair: Christos Vassilicos, Professor of Fluid Mechanics, Imperial College London Climate Change and Aviation Sir Brian Hoskins, Director of Grantham Institute for Climate Change, Imperial College London A brief review will be given of the basis for concerns over climate change and the possible contribution by aviation. The UK greenhouse gas targets proposed by the Climate Change Committee will be discussed, along with some scenarios for aviation up to Clean Sky: Europe's unified approach Eric Dautriat, Executive Director, Clean Sky JTI Clean Sky, a Joint Technology Initiative from the European Commission and the vast majority of the European aeronautics industry, is developing a set of technologies to be demonstrated at system level. The common objective is to cut the emissions and noise of all kinds of aircraft at the 2020 horizon, through a coherent approach and a comprehensive, multi-facetted monitoring strategy. Quarterly calls for proposals are successfully drawing in the expertise and knowledge of an increasing number of large and small research organisations Short introduction to poster display: Low weight Lorenzo Iannucci, Reader in Advanced Structural Design, Imperial College London 15.55Tea break Session 4Chair: John Polak, Head of Centre for Transport Studies, Imperial College London Air Traffic Management’s role in making aviation greener David McMillan, Director General, EUROCONTROL The presentation will describe: some of the practical steps in place and in the pipeline; the need for efficient network-centric operations; the wider picture – developments at ICAO level; EUROCONTROL’s role in the Emissions Trading Scheme; the challenges ahead as demand increases but runway capacity is constrained; what are Society's choices? Meeting environmental capacity limits at Heathrow Matthew Gorman, Corporate Responsibility and Environment Director, BAA Ltd Matthew Gorman will outline the role of Heathrow, the world's biggest international air hub, in sustainability - enhancing the airport's social and economic benefits while meeting environmental limits. He will focus in particular on the 'environmental capacity' limits at Heathrow related to climate change, noise and air quality. He will outline what the airport is doing to meet those limits and the role of research and technological developments Short introduction to poster display: Aircraft operations Arnab Majumdar, Director of The Lloyd's Register Educational Trust Transport Risk Management Centre, Imperial College London 18.05Closing remarks from Emeritus Professor Peter Bearman, Imperial College London 18.10Drinks Reception
