SESAR Innovation Days
Hosted by University of Belgrade, Serbia, from 28 – 30 November 2017, the 7th SESAR Innovation Days (SIDs) will present the latest long-term research in the field of air traffic management. Papers and presentations will be selected based on an open call for contributions. The event will also feature a poster exhibition and a networking event, which will provide participants opportunities to learn about interesting projects and to meet like-minded researchers.
The SESAR Innovation Days (SIDs) are also the main vehicle for SESAR Joint Undertaking (SJU) to share progress and disseminate results of its exploratory research programme. Unlike other scientific events in air traffic management (ATM) research, the SESAR Innovation Days focus explicitly on long-term and innovative research. Now in its seventh year, the SESAR Innovation Days have become a landmark event in the European aviation research calendar.

Call for contributions
Researchers from universities, research institutions, airlines, air traffic service providers and industry are invited to submit papers (up to 8 pages) presenting the results of their long-term or innovative research within the areas of interest listed below. Papers will be evaluated based on the innovative nature of the ideas, as well as the approach and methods applied.
Areas of interest include:
- Safety and security in a highly automated environment
- Automation, robotics and autonomy
- Human factors and decision support tools
- Designing resilient ATM systems
- Uncertainty, applied modelling and optimization techniques
- Communications, navigation and surveillance (CNS) technical enablers
- Complexity, data science and information management
- Application of economics to facilitate a paradigm shift in ATM
- Enabling change, including legal and regulatory aspects and the ATM innovation process
- Innovative approaches in environment and meteorology
- Remotely-piloted aerial systems
- ATM operations, architecture and performance
- Optimised ATM network management
- High performing airport operations
- Advanced air traffic services
All papers (including SESAR contributions) will be peer-reviewed to ensure that high standards are maintained. The proceedings will be available for download in electronic form on both the event website and SJU website prior to the event. All SIDs papers are listed in Elsevier’s Scopus database.
Call for posters and exhibits
Partners from academia and industry are invited to submit proposals for posters (max 2 posters per subject) and technical exhibits or demonstrations. 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. Proposals of one page shall be submitted with a detailed description of the subject matter.
Full papers in the conference areas of interest and up to 8 pages can be submitted to the SESAR Innovation Days.
