2014 Alias Conference: Legal and Social Impact of Automated Systems in Aviation

The Alias research network is one of WP-E Research Networks set up within the framework of SESAR’s long-term research activities.

The 2014 edition of the ALIAS Conference, entitled “Legal and Social Impact of Automated Systems in Aviation”, will be held on October 1-2, 2014 and hosted by the European University Institute (EUI) in Villa La Fonte, Fiesole (Florence, Italy). The title highlights a clear focus on aviation, though the conference does not exclude other emerging relevant issues on safety-critical domains.

The term “social” covers all  issues that go beyond legal problems, such as economic, psychological, philosophical and ethical aspects. The conference will address liability aspects in advanced technologies in air traffic management.  The increase of automation in aviation  is not only about innovation, but also about the liability which automation brings.

Participants from academia, research centres, SMEs and others interested in the theme of liability in automation in ATM are welcome to participate at the conference.
