Collegium Ramazzini endorses Aircraft Cabin Air Conference, to be held in London 19-20 September 2017The Aircraft Cabin Air Conference, the first global meeting on aircraft cabin air quality in more than a decade, is set to take place in London this September. Despite air accident investigators recommending detection systems be fitted to public transport aircraft over a decade ago, the technology has not been available and planes continue to fly with no warning systems to alert pilots and crew when the air supply to the cockpit and passenger cabin is contaminated.
The conference, running 19-20 September 2017 at Imperial College London, UK, will bring together the latest research, the field's most well respected experts and those solving this industry-wide problem to talk about solutions to the issue.
Thirty speakers from three continents, including Fellows of the Collegium Ramazzini, will present over eight sessions. Conference supporters include Pall Aerospace, the British pilot union the PPU, Air Canada Pilot Association (ACPA), Australian Federation of Air Pilots(AFAP), Australian International Pilots Association (AIPA), Association of Professional Flight Attendants (APFA) - the largest flight attendant union in the world and Stirling University.
The conference is endorsed by: Collegium Ramazzini, International Joint Policy Committee of the Societies of Epidemiology IJPC-SE, and the European Sealing Association.
