In-person | May 22-24 | Santiago, Chile
We are quite excited to announce that once again we are meeting in -person after three years due to the pandemic!
Join us in-person in Santiago de Chile in May 22-24!
Looking forward to hearing from you and our community about the latest challenges and developments, new ideas, case studies, and latest technological advances. Major topics to be discussed and reviewed relate to how network planners and schedulers adjust to post-pandemic climate, advances on forecasting and network and schedule optimization, such as demand forecasting, market share forecasting, robust scheduling, fleet assignment, network strategies, codeshare/alliance decisions, maintenance routing, collaboration between schedule optimization and crew , and many more.
This year, SSP and Crew Management study groups conferences are happening concurrently! By joining our conference, you will meet and network with colleagues in both study groups! We will have separate registration and technical program. We will however have joint social events (welcome reception, lunches and dinners, and a social event), and plan a joint technical session on topics covering Crew and Network and Schedule Planning synergies.
We look forward to seeing you in May!
Registration fee includes all conference technical materials and all scheduled meals and social events.

Host City - Santiago de Chile
Capital of the Republic of Chile, Santiago is the cultural, administrative and financial center and the most important metropolis in the country.
Also known by the name of Greater Santiago, it is located in the Maipo Valley, surrounded by the Coast Mountain Range to the West and by the Chacabuco and Angostura Ranges to the North and South, respectively. The Andes Mountain Range closes the frame of the city in the East. (source)
May is a great month to enjoy this diverse, far-flung country. Summer crowds are long gone, and it's still too early for skiing. Autumn, then, is the time to head to the country's great outdoors to enjoy the foliage and observe spectacular landscapes in peace. (source)

The policy of AGIFORS for all study group meetings is to have the registration fee for Airline and Academics delegates as low as possible. The philosophy behind this is that academics are likely to enter new lines of thought into our field, and having a strong presence by airlines brings great value both to vendors and airlines. This would only be possible because of our sponsors. Thank you!
If you consider sponsoring our conference and supporting AGIFORS, various packages are available. With each package your company will be recognized an official sponsor and your logo will be included in all communications regarding the conference. Please contact us at email@example.com for other benefits such as a vendor booth, logo/banner placement in the conference venue, vendor presentation (showcasing your company, products and services), etc.
You can sign up for sponsorship online here.
