Registration opens for 2016 annual Airbus DiPaRT Conference

Registration opens for 2016 annual Airbus DiPaRT Conference

Registration has formally opened for the seventh annual Airbus DiPaRT event taking place between 21st and 23rd November 2016 at CFMS, Bristol and Bath Science Park. Delegates interested in attending can view the conference programme and register through the DiPaRT portal, accessible at the CFMS website.

DiPaRT was created in 2010 by Airbus as a mechanism for engaging and collaborating with the UK Flight Physics R&T community. Supporting the UK centred capability in design and integration of wings, landing gear and associated systems, the DiPaRT network of organisations and partners identify potential technologies and research aligned with Airbus R&T strategy.

Providing the opportunity to shape and influence pathways, DiPaRT provides transparency of Airbus’s strategic aspirations to shape and influence pathways in Flight Physics R&T.

Over 65 presentations will be delivered from 25 organisations during the popular three day event, which will see in excess of 120 delegates from Airbus and the UK Flight Physics R&T community gather together. Organiser of the event, Philippe Garang, Head of  Flight Physics Capability UK, Airbus, commented, “Abstracts of very high standards were submitted for the event and a record number of submissions were received.”

Delivered over three days, the event will provide delegates with the opportunity to attend presentations from Airbus, Airbus Group Innovations, ARA, AGI, CFMS, City University London, Cranfield University, DLR, Imperial College London, International TechneGroup, Loughborough University, Queen Mary University London, Queen’s University Belfast, Renishaw, Sogeti, University of Bath, University of Bristol, University of Cambridge, University of Liverpool, University of London, Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, University of Surrey, University of Sheffield, University of Southampton and University of Swansea.

Sanjay Khetia, Chief Technology Officer, CFMS, “We’re delighted to be hosting and participating in the DiPaRT event. This is a great opportunity for the organisations that are part of the flight physics community to share research and learn about industry developments.”

 DiPaRT commences on 21st November at 12.00pm with a series of keynote talks on the topic of addressing flight physics R&T at a UK and European level. An evening keynote lecture will be given by Marc Fischer, Head of Flight Physics Centre of Competence, Airbus, followed by an evening reception. The Flight Physics Symposium will commence at 8.30am on 22nd November where delegates will be split into three streams.

About DiPaRT

DiPaRT has been created by Airbus as a mechanism for communicating with, engaging and orchestrating the UK Flight Physics R&T community. The aim is to foster a coherent, well informed and motivated partnership that can help Airbus effectively deliver its strategic vision for a UK capability, supporting design and integration of wings, landing gear and associated systems. Following the establishment of the UK Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) this remit acquires a special significance.

About CFMS

The Centre for Modelling & Simulation (CFMS) is proud to be a growing, independent and not-for-profit organisation that specialises in high value design capability. We promote advanced modelling and simulation, underpinned by HPC, pushing the boundaries of technology.

Through our exceptional, collaborative, virtual and physical facility, we enable the adoption and acceleration of new technologies for advanced modelling and simulation, while improving learning and developing awareness of state-of-the-art. Engaging with organisations large and small, we help to provide access to the right tools, resources, skills and technologies, resulting in increased productivity and faster, more informed decision-making. 

As a trusted and neutral provider, our vision is to drive a practical revolution in engineering capability and design, working with organisations to reduce risk in the design phase, product development costs and time to market.
