Working Papers will be posted (pdf) as they become available.
In order to prepare background information for the Conference, a survey for States on some organizational and regulatory aspects of airports and air navigation services was sent to States under cover of a State letter. I would be grateful if you could complete and return the survey by mail, facsimile (+1 514 954-6744) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), as early as possible.
Alternatively, you may wish to complete the survey online (English version only). While the survey is addressed to States, international organizations are welcome to provide their views or comments on any of the aspects covered by the survey.
Instructions regarding the preparation of Working Papers
Considering the limited time for the meeting, the discussions at the Conference will focus on the key issues. If you intend to submit working papers, you may wish to review the Secretariat’s basic documentation before doing so.
Any working papers that you plan to submit for the Conference should be received not later than 4 August 2008 in order to permit translation, reproduction and distribution in due time prior to the meeting. Papers received after that date, but not later than 1 September 2008, will be processed as promptly as possible in the language or languages in which they are submitted. Working papers will be posted on the CEANS web page as soon as they are processed.
Working papers should be limited to four pages of text including any appendices. As a matter of policy, working papers of more than four pages are no longer translated by the Organization. Working papers presented by observers and all information papers will be produced in their original language only, unless translated versions are provided by the originators of such papers.
Electronic submission of working papers is strongly encouraged. As Microsoft Word is the ICAO standard for word processing, it would be appreciated if an electronic copy of your working paper in Microsoft Word format could be sent directly by e-mail to email@example.com.
The reference material for the Conference will include: ICAO’s Policies on Charges for Airports and Air Navigation Services (Doc 9082, seventh edition), Airport Economics Manual (Doc 9562, second edition), Manual on Air Navigation Services Economics (Doc 9161, fourth edition), Performance Management and Measurement for Air Navigation Services Providers (ICAO Secretariat document) and Case Studies on Commercialization, Privatization and Economic Oversight.
