The aviation industry is one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. It can be viewed as making a positive contribution to sustainability. The ISSA, an international, multi-disciplinary symposium, aims to address current issues in the field of aviation such as improving aircraft fuel efficiency, fostering the use of biofuels, minimizing environmental impact, mitigating GHG emissions and reduction of engine and airframe noise.


The ISSA-2020 features keynote presentations by invited speakers and general papers presentations in oral sessions. Due to increasing concerns regarding COVID-19 pandemic, all presentations will be made through an online video conferencing platform. Presenters have to prepare a pre-recorded video for their conference presentation and should be available online for the Q&A session.

High-quality papers of archival value will be considered in extended form for publication in various reputable international journals:

  • Aerospace Science and Technology (ISSN: 1270-9638)
  • Energy (ISSN: 0360-5442)
  • Journal of Aeronautics, Astronautics and Aviation (ISSN: 1990-7710)
  • International Journal of Sustainable Aviation (ISSN: 2050-0475)
