SESAR Innovation Days 2022
The SESAR Innovation Days (SIDs) are the main vehicle for SESAR Joint Undertaking to share progress and disseminate exploratory research results. Unlike other scientific events in air traffic management (ATM) research, the SIDs focus explicitly on exploratory research. Organised annually since 2011, the SIDS have become a landmark event in the European aviation research calendar.
The 12th edition of the SIDs will be held on 05-08 December 2022 and hosted by HungaroControl at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest.
With the event coinciding with the closure of several SESAR 2020 research projects, the 2022 event promises to be a valuable event, showcasing the latest research and innovation results and reflecting Europe’s commitment to the long-term sustainability of the aviation industry, as well as its recovery from the Covid-19 crisis.
The SIDs are based on an open Call soliciting contributions from the ATM research community. Exhibitions and poster, keynotes and several networking events will provide further opportunities to learn about interesting projects and meet like-minded researchers.
Once again, this year’s SIDs will host the annual Young Scientist Award, recognising young scientists, who have demonstrated excellence in ATM and aviation-related research fields.
Call for contributions
Researchers from universities, research institutions, airlines, air navigation service providers, airport operators and industry are invited to submit papers presenting exploratory research (up to 8 pages). Papers will be evaluated based on the innovative nature of the ideas, as well as the approach and methods applied. All papers (including SESAR contributions) will be triple peer-reviewed. The proceedings will be available for download in electronic format on both the event website and SESAR 3 JU website prior to the event. All SIDs papers are listed in Elsevier’s Scopus database.
The submission deadline for papers is 30 September 2022
Partners from both academia and industry are invited to submit proposals for posters and technical exhibits or demonstrations (max one poster/exhibit/demonstration per presenter, three per organisation). As well as showing innovative solutions to traditional problems of air traffic management, posters and exhibits may also address wider air transport and air traffic issues.
The submission deadline for posters is 15 September 2022
