From the 2010 Conference Chair

Jim Dieudonne, 2010 Conference ChairThanks for showing interest in ICNS 2010 – The Challenges of NextGen: New Issues for Aviation’s Future.

What a year! First, let me extend my congratulations to the New Orleans Saints, Superbowl Champions – 43 years of being an “Aints” fan finally paid off. I can now get rid of my “paper bag”!

NextGen is also having a good year – ADS-B deployment and ERAM becoming operational! We have a new Director of the JPDO, Dr. Karlin Toner, and she has agreed to be one our keynote speakers.

We are at an outstanding brand new hotel, the Westin Washington Dulles Airport Hotel. Our technical sessions are full with quality, up-to-date information spanning all aspects of ICNS.

Sponsors and Exhibitors are stepping up, but we still have room for more, and we have scheduled a tour of the National Air and Space Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center during business hours followed by a social function, which will allow you to miss rush hour.

The conference program is almost complete, and a draft of the program should be on the website by early next week.

Look forward to seeing you at the conference.
