Time to Get Your Abstracts Ready for the 34th DASC
New Avionics systems in the area of Communication, Navigation and Surveillance serve as a key enabler for future Air Traffic Management. To ensure that airlines equip in time, mandates for new and existing aircraft have been proposed. This year, the impact of global mandates on avionics research and development has been chosen as the conference theme. Both our Plenary and Technical Sessions will be addressing the theme and will include many people from around the world discussing how their countries and organizations are responding to the mandates. A special track will focus on whether there is a need for mandates that address cyber-related vulnerabilities in the CNS infrastructure. In this context, papers are being sought that address security threats and vulnerabilities of communication and navigation systems in terms of information integrity, their potential impact on safety, human factors aspects related to the detection of sudden inconsistencies in the available information, and technical mitigations such as improvements in the area of information authentication. Please check our Call for Papers for all topics being sought to round out the breadth of our technical program. Through the review process, the best papers covering novel developments, characterization of the issues, and operational testing will be selected and honored at the conference.
The timeline for you technical contribution to the 34th DASC is as follows: Abstracts (750 words or less) should be submitted no later than March 6. If you chose to participate in the review process, papers need to be submitted no later than June 1, and the deadline for the final version of the paper is August 13.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Prague,

Welcome To The
34th Digital Avionics Systems Conference (DASC)!
Greetings Aeronautics and Space Avionics Enthusiasts - On behalf of the AIAA Digital Avionics Technical Committee and the IEEE Aerospace Electronics Systems Society, we welcome you to the 34th Digital Avionics Systems Conference!
Let me begin by thanking Mr. Benjamin Levy and his outstanding Conference Committee on the hugely successful 33rd DASC. The conference was held in Colorado Springs, Colorado from October 5-9, 2014. Many thanks to the Plenary Speakers, Authors, Presenters, Exhibitors, Sponsors and Attendees for providing the latest updates on technology and participating in the many networking opportunities. It was a great week in every regard.
So let’s begin preparing for the 34th DASC. Please plan now to join us September 13-17, 2015 in the Golden City of Prague in the Czech Republic. We have selected the Corinthia, a beautiful five-star hotel to host us and we have many extra events planned to showcase Prague and the surrounding area along with many networking opportunities with an international Aerospace Community. Our theme this coming year is the “Impact of Global Mandates on Avionics Research and Development”. Our Call for Participation (CFP) is now available online as well as an attachment to this email. There are many relevant topics which build on the interplay between mandates and innovations to consider. Through your participation, you can help to influence the future directions of industry, government, and academia as we all work together to transform flight.
I will be sending out monthly updates leading up to conference week containing important news about various aspects of our Conference. The next one will focus on paper submission. Watch for it next month!
