ATCA 56th Annual Conference & Exposition
UPDATED: The annual call for papers for the Conference Proceedings of ATCA is underway. Abstracts are due by June 17, 2011; manuscripts are due by July 22, 2011.
The Conference Proceedings serve as one of the air traffic community’s leading sources for technical papers. They are part of ATCA’s continuing efforts to provide an outlet for formal, academic and professional communication in the air traffic control disciplines. Publishing your best work in the Conference Proceedings is an opportunity to share technical, policy and procedural information with other professionals, academia, media, industry and others.
The Proceedings will be distributed through the ATCA website and direct e-mail to everyone attending ATCA’s 2011 Annual Conference and Exhibition. The Association will accept approximately three of the best papers for authors to personally present at the Conference. The top three presenters will receive free admission on the day of their presentation.
Though suggested topics for the Proceedings will be based on this year’s Annual Conference program and are still in development, they will be suggestions only. All papers on topics relevant to air traffic control will be considered for publication and presentation. So if you have a topic in mind that you want to write about, it is time to begin.
