DASC 2024 : Digital Avionics Systems Conference
Call For Papers
The 43rd AIAA/IEEE Digital Avionics Systems Conference (DASC) continues a
rich tradition as the preeminent R&D conference in the field of digital avionics,
offered by two distinguished professional societies, the American Institute of
Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics
With an increasingly diverse background of attendees and relevant technical
topics, the conference offers a collaborative environment for educational and
professional opportunities. We are confident that you will have a memorable,
engaging, and educational experience.
BUILDING TRUST IN INCREASINGLY COMPLEX SAFETY-CRITICAL AVIATION SYSTEMS
Aviation systems are growing significantly more complex due to multiple industry
trends, including increased use of digital modeling, automation functions,
introduction of Artificial Intelligence (AI), use of multicore processors, increased
airspace congestion from manned and unmanned aircraft, and unanticipated
consequences of integration of many systems whose overall behavior is not
sufficiently specified. These trends provide new capability and new opportunities.
However, complexity also challenges our ability to comprehend the overall picture
necessary to provide confidence in the safety and security of these systems.
The 43rd DASC will explore and characterize trends that increase complexity and
investigate the tools, models, and methods necessary to obtain the promised
benefits while mitigating the attendant risks.
Conference participants are invited to submit cutting-edge research papers
and exchange diverse perspectives on complex new trends infusing aviation
systems, with consideration for the safety-criticality of the domain. Original
research on technical challenges, gaps and approaches to enhance any of the
conference tracks (described on next page) are also welcome.
Areas of emphasis will include:
Artificial Intelligence and autonomy
Fidelity of digital modeling of physical systems and software
Validation, verification, and certification
Anticipating and managing interactions of large number of
manned and unmanned aircraft
Improving comprehension of
massively complex integrated systems
Safety assurance and human factors
Integration of autonomous vehicles
into the airspace
Multi-modal interaction including
speech recognition and synthesis
Other Topics: The conference will continue to offer opportunities to publish and
present on a wide range of topics of interest to the avionics technology community
(see full CFP).
Papers, Panels, Education, and Workshops: The Technical and Professional
Education Programs will incorporate technical research papers and relevant
tutorials from international researchers, innovators, engineers, users, and
designers. Plenary panel discussions and keynote presentations by leaders
in industry, government and academia will discuss topics that are shaping
international developments. Check our website for periodic updates:
