The objective of AERODAYS-06 is to support the aeronautics thematic priority of the European Commission. As a traditional event, the Fifth Community Aeronautics Days Conference will be held from 19 - 21 June 2006 in Vienna, Austria. This Conference will bring together all relevant stakeholders from all over Europe including Russia and the Ukraine to network, to present their results and to discuss future RTD work. The conference will mark the start of the 7th Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission.
This is an ideal opportunity to present and review the status of European aeronautics RTD work. Key representatives including the European Commission will actively be involved in the strategic planning of the conference. The EC will present FP7 details. Particular attention is given to the involvement of the new member states. Selecting Vienna as the location for the venue is therefore most suitable. Austria's presidency of the European Union will add importance to the conference. A large participation of students and young researchers is a particular objective of the organisers. To this end, a special student participation programme is part of the comprehensive conference programme.
The conference will provide an ideal platform for discussing political, industrial and research topics in the extended Europe, assisting a policy, which pursues an intelligent combination of top-down and bottom-up approaches. As previous Aeronautics days, the proposed Fifth Community Aeronautics Days will address the technological and industrial development of the European Aeronautics sector providing a high-level, future oriented perspective coming from politics, the industry and the research community, in response to Europe's social needs and expectations. Moreover, the Conference will offer a unique forum for government officials, decision makers, managers, researchers, engineers and journalists from all over Europe and beyond to discuss and reflect on an RTD roadmap.
