The 13th Conference of the European Aeronautical Sciences Network will take place in Salerno, Italy, on 5-8 September 2023. The annual EASN conference grew into the most important such aerospace event in Europe. The presented papers have a number of publishing options, including ISI. As moderator of the section on Air Traffic Managament (ATM) and Airports, I extend my invitation to the scientific community and to Alumni to participate with papers to the conference and specially at this section. To register and abstract submissions, please access <EASN Conference>.

Air Traffic Management (ATM) and Airports Subjects

Managing the safe and efficient flow of air traffic needs increased efforts of the aerospace scientific community. ATM remains a bright spot on the innovation chart. There are several questions facing the ATM system and the airports as key components, which this section tries to address: (i) How can the rebound  of post-pandemic air traffic be reconciled with the ATM capacity constraints, to avoid delays? Is a change of paradigm in ATM still achievable? How could flight trajectories be better predicted? (ii) How can flight trajectories be optimized based on CO2 and non-CO2 factors to make aviation more environment friendly? (iii) How should we address the security challenges caused by war, but also by the obsolescence of software and hardware, and cyber vulnerabilities in the ATM systems and on airports? (iv) Is the ATM system capable to fully integrate the UAV/UAS and RPAS traffic in the controlled airspace, or more needs to be done? (v) As safety remains at unprecedented levels, why has the number of safety incidents increased, especially runway incursions on busy airports? (vi) How can AI tools be employed to solve ATM and airports problems? (vii) How can the noise around airports be further reduced? (viii) Is aviation in need of the Magnetic North reference anymore? Or the True North could replace it? (ix) Which are the most promissing directions of progress in Air Traffic Services? (x) Which are the lessons learned from the 5G interference with Radar Altimeters and which is the way forward in this matter?
