AGIFORS' 62nd Annual Symposium will be hosted by Air France and Airbus in Toulouse, France, on September 12 –15, 2022.
We are delighted to welcome you to Toulouse, France in September for our first in-person event since the pandemic! In addition to 3.5 days of technical presentations, we will be honoring three new Fellows and recognizing our student Anna Valicek finalists and Ken Wang scholars. The conference will be held at the Espaces Vanel which has large conference rooms surrounded by wrap-around balconies for enjoying the outdoors and soaking in the views in between sessions. There will be several networking events including a Welcome reception on Monday evening and a Gala banquet in the historic district of Toulouse on Wednesday. Sponsor booths will be located in the break area and provide ample opportunities for interacting one-on-one with participants and showcasing products.
With regard to the technical program, 2022 has been one of transition for the airline industry, with recovery rates differing across other parts of the world. Never before have we parked about 50% of our aircraft for months, and then attempted to reactive so many aircraft and align crew resources so quickly. This whiplash effect has created unprecedented challenges across multiple functional areas including revenue management, scheduling, crew management, operations, and maintenance. The AGIFORS Symposium provides a platform for airline experts and decision makers to come together and exchange ideas on how the industry is addressing these and other challenges. The Symposium will feature recent advancements in continuous pricing, disruption management, schedule recovery, crew recovery, workforce planning, and predictive maintenance. Many of these features will feature advanced analytics methods, including machine learning and AI. Experts come from airlines, air transport associations, universities, industrial research labs, consulting firms, and vendors.
Some highlights for this year's Symposium:
- Reduced registration of USD 650 for airline and academic members, USD 1100 for vendors. Rates apply for AGIFORS Members registering before 30th August 2022.
