Call for Proposals – SESAR 3 Digital Sky Demonstrators

The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) has launched a new call under the Connecting Europe Facility, containing provisions for a series of SESAR JU Digital European Sky Demonstrators in the areas of automation and virtualisation. The demonstrators are a key tool to support the SESAR JU’s vision of delivering the Digital European Sky, matching the ambitions of “sustainable and smart mobility” and “Europe fit for the digital age” initiatives. The demonstrators, when selected, are expected to be launched in 2023 and to run until 2026.

Call for Papers – 15th USA/Europe ATM R&D Seminar (05-09 June 2023, Savannah, USA)

The United States Federal Aviation Administration and EUROCONTROL are jointly organising the 15th USA/Europe ATM R&D Seminar. This continues a series started in 1997, hosted alternately in Europe and the USA. The ATM R&D Seminars allow the ATM community to share and discuss R&D results and to build consensus on major issues; they have a strong record of creating and reinforcing working and personal relationships amongst leading experts and researchers in the industry.

The 2023 edition of the seminar will take place in Savannah, Georgia, USA between 05 and 09 June 2023; it will provide a platform for researchers to share results that can contribute to current European and US ATM initiatives. All technical sessions of the seminar will be video-recorded and the recordings will subsequently be made available to the community. The seminar itself, however, will be in-person and attendance throughout the event is strongly encouraged.

Theme descriptions:
● Air traffic flow management and optimisation
● 4D Trajectory planning, prediction, and management
● Separation assurance and safety nets
● Advanced communication, surveillance and navigation
● Integrated airport/airside operations
● Economics, finance and policy
● ATM performance measurement and management
● Safety, resilience and security
● Environment and energy efficiency
● Weather in ATM
● Human factors
● Autonomous, unmanned and remotely piloted aircraft systems
● Complexity science, analytics and big data for ATM

Closing date for paper submissions: 05 February 2023
