This includes discussion on novel aircraft concepts, improved materials or new aircraft sensors, new software paradigms, improved airworthiness and manufacturing techniques/technologies, and all the other tools, products and services that ensure resilience of systems and operations, able to face current and emerging new hazards. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The results of this workshop will generate a prioritised strategic research agenda for new Resilience research, which will be presented both to ACARE and the European Commission at the Final OPTICS Dissemination Event in June (14-15) in Brussels. This is therefore an opportunity for researchers and industry alike to help shape the future Aviation Resilience research agenda.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Keynote speakers from Rolls Royce, EASA, and CIRA will introduce the safety challenges facing aviation, and their approaches to improving resilience. Four key research projects will present focused solutions for enhancing resilience and improving post-accident survivability.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The participants attending the presentations and the discussions will be actively involved in providing their suggestions to improve the approach to resilience in terms of: new research priorities, identification of gaps and bottlenecks, and ways to overcome them.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Each registrant will be asked to propose two high priority areas of research in these areas in advance of the workshop. This is not obligatory, but will facilitate the workshop discussions.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">To attend the workshop,<strong> </strong><strong>Registration is mandatory. The registration is free of charge, and is now open (please use the box "Sign in" at top-right of this page).</strong><br><span aria-hidden="true"></span><strong>For additional information or logistics support (</strong><strong>registration, hotel reservation, transport) </strong><strong>please contact </strong><a href=""><span lang="EN-US" style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong><font color="#0066cc"></font></strong></span></a><strong> <span aria-hidden="true"></span><span aria-hidden="true"></span></strong><br></p><h3>Logistics</h3><p style="text-align:justify;">CIRA is located in Capua, a pretty town in Southern Italy about 160 km south of Rome, 50 km north of Naples and 20 km from Caserta. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">The closest international airport is Capodichino airport, in Naples (, located 45 km south of Capua and 30 km from Caserta. </p><p style="text-align:justify;">Information on how to reach CIRA is available at </p><p style="text-align:justify;"><a href=""></a></p><h3>Hotel </h3><p style="text-align:justify;">Special room rates for workshop's participant at Hotel Royal Caserta (<a href=""><span lang="EN-US"></span></a>).</p><p>Single room: €80,00 (breakfast included)</p><p>Twin room: €90,00 (breakfast included)</p><p><span lang="EN"><span aria-hidden="true"></span>To book your room please contact <a href=""><span lang="IT"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><font color="#0066cc"></font></span></span></a><span lang="IT"> </span>providing the following information:</span></p><ul><li><p><span lang="EN">Subject: CIRA - OPTICS Workshop- Booking Room</span></p></li><li><p><span lang="EN">Room type</span></p></li><li><p><span lang="EN">First Name</span></p></li><li><p><span lang="EN">Last Name</span></p></li><li><p><span lang="EN">E.mail</span></p></li><li><p><span lang="EN">Phone number</span></p></li><li><p><span lang="EN">Company</span></p></li><li><p><span lang="EN">Billing Address</span></p></li></ul><h3>Special Travel Arangements</h3><p style="text-align:justify;">A special travel arrangement, covering all bus transfers, has been organized for the workshop at the cost of €50,00 to be paid at the Hotel Royal </p><ol style="text-align:justify;"><li><p>On April 26th</p></li><ul><li><p>Shuttle 1 from Naples Airport to CIRA leaves at 11:30.  <span lang="EN-US">Meeting point is at bus parking, that is on the right of the arrival exit.</span></p></li><li><p>Shuttle 2 from Royal Hotel in Caserta to CIRA leaves at 11:30 </p></li></ul><li><p>On April 26th - Shuttle from CIRA to Royal Hotel in Caserta leaves at 18:30</p></li><li><p>On April 27th - Shuttle from Royal Hotel in Caserta to CIRA leaves at 07:50</p></li><li><p>On April 27th </p></li><ul><li><p>Shuttle 1 from CIRA to Naples Airport leaves at 15:00 (expected arrival time: 16:00)</p></li><li><p>Shuttle 2 from CIRA to Royal Hotel in Caserta leaves at 15:00 (expected arrival time: 15:40)</p></li></ul></ol><h3>Taxi fares</h3><ul><li><p>From Napoli Capodichino airport to CIRA in Capua or to Hotel in Caserta: about €90,00 / €120,00 </p></li><li><p>From Napoli Capodichino airport to Napoli Stazione Centrale: about €15,00 / €20,00</p></li><li><p>From Hotel in Caserta to CIRA in Capua: about €20,00 / €25,00</p></li></ul><strong>For additional information or logistics support (</strong><strong>registration, hotel reservation, transport) </strong><strong>please contact </strong><a href=""><span lang="EN-US" style="text-decoration:underline;"><strong><font color="#0066cc"></font></strong></span></a><strong> </strong><br>4/25/2017 10:00:00 PM4/26/2017 10:00:00 PM12/12/2016 11:00:00 PMCIRAVia Maiorise, Capua - CasertaGP0|#641b129f-dbc2-40a4-879d-57800cb509c9;L0|#0641b129f-dbc2-40a4-879d-57800cb509c9|Workshop;GTSet|#f95fe7e3-b647-4453-bf94-904923324971;GPP|#18eb5d93-a895-45ea-8d07-76cc2e1a43bb12:30
