Thanks to Guy Boy from the Florida Inst. of Technology for his heads-up about an interesting conference happening in late 2010. HCI-Aero — a symposium organized under the auspices of the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition will be looking at the future of crew-ground interaction from both an aeronautics and a spaceflight perspective. Many of the topics have great relevance to NextGen, i.e.:
- Automation and authority distribution
- Mission/trip planning and trajectory management
- Interacting in a 4D world
- UAV traffic integration
- New concepts of operations, separation modes
The call for papers and workshop/panel/demo proposals has just been published here; most submissions are due in April 2010.
