“Navigating the Info-Centric AAM/ATM Landscape” is the theme of the 24th Integrated Communications, Navigation and Surveillance (ICNS) Conference. You are invited to join aviation stakeholders in this premier conference dedicated to the development and evolution of CNS technologies that ensure the safety, regularity, and operational efficiency of air travel around the world.
The ICNS Conference started as a NASA Workshop in Cleveland, Ohio in the advent of NextGen air traffic management initiatives in the United States. Recognizing the need for global harmonization, the ICNS Conference quickly expanded into a premier international aviation conference focusing on CNS/ATM. Leadership from several Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) including EUROCONTROL, FAA, and ground system suppliers discuss policy and technical plans that will support all airspace users including the integration of advanced air mobility (AAM). Aircraft manufacturers, avionics suppliers, and many others contribute to the ICNS Conference.
The ICNS Conference format includes morning plenary sessions with keynote speakers to be announced. On Tuesday and Wednesday morning, the conference will feature speakers from academia, industry, and the government. An interactive CNS Workshop will take place Thursday morning. Afternoon sessions will include multiple technical tracks and the presentation of technical papers pertinent to Info-Centric AAM/ATM initiatives. These papers will be published in IEEE Xplore.
Sponsorship opportunities are available and exhibit space is provided to demonstrate CNS products. Networking with colleagues is a big part of the conference. Reconnect with friends and associates during meals, at meeting breaks, and during the evening social events. There will be a guest speaker on Tuesday evening, to be announced. A fun-filled trivia madness will be hosted on Wednesday evening.
Please be sure to join us for dinner at the evening events!
In summary, ICNS 2024 is an informative forum for aviation thought leaders, policymakers, researchers, and other technical experts from government, industry, and academia around the world. Together we address today’s challenges, this includes new entrants, global harmonization, and sustainability – all while ensuring the safety, regularity, operational efficiency of air transportation.
There are many people to thank. This starts with our generous sponsors, the technical contributors, and meeting participants that make this conference possible. We wish to thank our outstanding keynote speakers for inspiring the aviation community to always excel. We thank our visionary CNS and air traffic management panelists and authors. You can read more about them on the ICNS website and in the program booklet.
Finally, the ICNS leadership team, all of whom are volunteers, work long hours to make this year’s event possible. It would be impossible to thank them enough for making this conference a great success. I wish to add a personal note of thanks to our fabulous plenary chairs, technical chairs, workshop chairs, and all those working behind the scenes to make the ICNS Conference a premier aviation conference.
Have a great meeting!
