Modus organised a first Q&A virtual meeting on 8 December 2020. If you missed it, a second virtual meeting will be held on Thursday, 10 December 2020 from 14:00 to 14:30.

Due to the Covid-19 situation and the associated impact on travel and gatherings, this year’s SESAR Innovation Days (SIDs) will take place online from 7 to 10 December 2020 in a virtual capacity. The SIDs are based on an open call, soliciting contributions from ATM research. Exhibitions and posters, keynotes, and networking events will provide further opportunities to learn about interesting projects and meet like-minded researchers.

Researchers from universities, research institutions, airlines, air navigation service providers and industry are invited to submit papers presenting exploratory 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, security and resilience
  • Automation, autonomy and robotics
  • Human factors and decision support tools
  • Uncertainty, applied modelling and optimisation techniques
  • Complexity, data science and information management
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence
  • Aviation economics and business models
  • Legal and regulatory aspects and the ATM innovation process
  • ATM operations, architecture and performance
  • Aerospace design and network and flow management
  • High performing airport operations
  • Advanced air traffic services
  • Innovative approaches in environment and meteorology
  • Integrated solutions for communications, navigation and surveillance (iCNS)
  • Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and UAS traffic management

Partners from academia and industry have been invited to submit proposals for posters 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.

Modus has received EU funding within the Horizon 2020 SESAR work programme.
The project consists of seven partners from five countries: UIC, Bauhaus Luftfahrt, Eurocontrol, ENAC, Skymantics, University of Westminster and Innaxis.
