Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is cooperating with the 3rd ECATS conference on Making Aviation Environmentally Sustainable, from 21 to 23 April 2020, in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Building upon the success of the 1st ECATS Conference (Berlin 2013) and 2nd ECATS Conference (Athens 2016), this scientific conference ECATS 2020 will give the opportunity to present state-of-the art research, review recent achievements and at the same time will provide a strategic perspective on future directions in environmentally sustainable aviation. The conference programme will present research in eight key areas of multidisciplinary expertise, allowing in-depth discussions and poster presentations.

  • Alternative fuels for aviation
  • Propulsion integration
  • Airport air quality
  • Aviation climate impact and mitigation concepts
  • Green flight—climate optimal flight trajectory
  • Future materials for aircraft
  • Interdependency and aviation environmental modelling
  • General session for the Swedish National Aeronautics Programme (NFFP)

Authors of contributions relating to the above key themes are welcome to submit extended versions of their conference work to this Special Issue for publication in our journal Aerospace.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Aerospace is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
