Forwarding Welfare?
The role of air cargo in future aviation policy and economics

Luxembourg, 29th November – 1st December 2023


Call for Papers and Posters

The European Aviation Conference (EAC) is delighted to invite academics, aviation practitioners, policymakers, and other stakeholders to submit contributions for the research activities at the 2023 European Aviation Conference: Research posters to be presented on the first two days and the dedicated Research Day (aka AMEC) on 1st December.

The European Aviation Conference (EAC) serves as a platform for diverse, high-quality research in air transport economics, transportation management and fields related fields in aviation. The Research Day shares the same overarching theme and is planned to be held on the last day of the EAC.

Participation in the 2023 European Aviation Research Day is open to all researchers and practitioners. The main topics of interest for submission include (but are not limited to):

  • Air cargo

  • Aviation policy

  • Airline and airport economics and management

  • Sustainable aviation

  • Economic regulation

  • Air traffic management.

  • Emerging business models in aviation

  • The scope for drones

All topics within the aviation economics and management areas are welcome. Proposals from researchers at all levels, especially PhD students, are encouraged to submit their work. Selected presentations will be assigned a discussant (a fellow researcher) to provide comprehensive feedback to each other, promote research ties across universities and provide a platform for researchers to excel.

Important information for Abstracts and Papers:

All contributions will be subject to peer review. Full papers will be considered for publication in the Journal of Air Transport Studies (JATS) and the Journal of Air Transport Research Society upon invitation. Past papers presented at EAC were published in the Journal of Air Transport Management (JATM).

The Virtual Special Issue Call will be announced closer to the conference date.

At least one author (presenter) must register. 

The structured abstract (200-300 words) should include the following:

  • Indication whether you are submitting a poster or a presentation

  • purpose of the research

  • design, methodology or approach

  • research (expected) findings

  • originality/contribution to the literature

  • relevant references (two to five references).


PhD students must state the name of supervisor(s), home and co-institution, and stage of PhD research to allocate a discussant specialised in the research field. Due to time constraints, the organisers may allocate them in a parallel session.
