Registration opens for 2017 annual Airbus DiPaRT Conference

Bristol, 26th October 2017 - Registration has formally opened for the eighth annual Airbus DiPaRT event, taking place between 20th and 22nd November 2017 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 70 presentations will be delivered 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, Brunel University London, Cardiff University, CFMS, City University London, Cranfield University, DLR, Frazer Nash, Institute of Risk and Uncertainty, Imperial College London, International TechneGroup, Queen Mary University London, Queen’s University Belfast, University of Bath, University of Bristol, University of Cambridge, University of Leeds, University of Liverpool, University of London, University of Nottingham, University of Oxford, University of Sheffield, University of Southampton, Sheffield Hallam University and Swansea University.

DiPaRT commences on 20th 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 Baron Hunt of Chesterton, 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 digitally enabled high value design capability. We promote advanced modelling and simulation, underpinned by High Performance Computing (HPC), pushing the boundaries of technology.

Through our exceptional, collaborative, virtual and physical facilities, 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.
