5th International Conference on Application and Theory of Automation in Command and Control Systems

University Paul Sabatier (IRIT), Toulouse, France — September 30 — October 2, 2015   


ATACCS is a scientific conference on the theme of Automation in Command and Control Systems. It is focused on applications and theories that are related to the replacement of human roles by technology (i.e. through automation). In the context of ATACCS, automation implies the use of systems to administer the tasks of humansincluding conformance monitoring and automation management. This raises enormous technical, ethical, organizational and safety challenges.

ATACCS is the brainchild of the HALA! Research Network (Higher Automation Levels in Air Traffic Management) which is supported by SESAR WP-E; a framework setup to spearhead long term and innovative research in automation of Air Traffic Management in pursuit of the SESAR 2020 vision and beyond. Despite this strong relationship with ATM, ATACCS welcomes submissions from all other domains and industries dealing with automation in command and control systems.

The fifth edition of the conference, ATACCS'2015 is going to be held in Toulouse, France, from September 30 to October 2, 2015. Previous editions of ATACCS have been held in Barcelona, Spain (2011), London, UK, Naples, Italy and Instambul, Turkey (in conjunction with ICRAT conference).
