Integrating humans and increasingly autonomous systems in air transportation.

Hybrid Conference Information
In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, DASC 2021 has officially moved to a hybrid conference format. We encourage in-person attendance of the conference but we are also excited to accommodate virtual participation for both authors and attendees who cannot travel to San Antonio, Texas. 

The DASC 2021 Virtual Conference Platform will allow virtual attendees to join live-streamed events, engage with exhibitors, present technical papers and participate in live Q&A’s, and access pre-recorded material at your convenience. All in-person attendees will also have access to the Virtual Conference Platform.

We encourage you to register for the “in-person” registration and in the event you are unable to travel at the last minute due to existing or new travel restrictions, you will be refunded the difference between the in-person and virtual conference.  Please contact the DASC 2021 Conference Manager Kiana Oqueli at [email protected] to explain your situation.

Main Conference

Call for Papers

Integrating humans and increasingly autonomous systems in air transportation.

The 40th Digital Avionics Systems Conference (DASC) promises to continue its rich tradition as the preeminent R&D Conference in the field of digital avionics offered.

In addition to the increasingly diverse background of attendees and relevant technical topics discussed, the conference offers a conducive environment for educational and recreational opportunities for everyone to explore. We are positive that you will have a memorable and educational experience at the 40th DASC.

Conference Theme

There has been much recent emphasis on the application of autonomy in avionics and impacts on safety. As we move to accept automation in flight systems, UAS platforms, and interaction with ground and spacebased systems the need to address interaction with humans, be they pilots, controllers, passengers, or users remains of high concern. This is overlaid on top of current safety requirements, increasing security requirements, and the emergence of machine learning in design and operation.

The 40th DASC will explore the integration of human and increasingly autonomous systems within the air transportation system. Conference participants are invited to submit cutting edge research papers and exchange diverse perspectives on application of autonomy alongside humans while maintaining safety and security. Original research on technical challenges, gaps and approaches to enhance traditional ATM, UAS, CNS, IMA, security, space systems, and human factors are also invited. 

Areas of Emphasis

  • Machine Learning in Practice
  • Adaptive Networks
  • Cognitive Assistants
  • Safety Assurance and Human Factors
  • Integration of Autonomous Vehicles
  • Multi-modal Interaction to support human-autonomy teaming
  • Security/Assurance
  • Single pilot and reduced crew operations
  • Trust in automation
  • Certification

Other Topics

Other Topics The 40th DASC will continue to offer opportunities to publish and present on a wide range of topics of interest to the avionics technology community (see next page). Papers, Panels, Education and Workshops The Technical and Professional Education Programs will incorporate technical research papers and relevant tutorials from international Researchers, Innovators, Engineers, Users, and Designers. Plenary panel discussions and keynote presentations by Leaders in Industry, Government and Academia will discuss topics that are shaping international developments. Please check our website for periodic updates: www.dasconline.org.
