Air Transportation Information Exchange Conference (ATIEC) 2019

ATMIS GraphicPurpose The ATIEC Conference is to provide a forum to discuss and exchange concepts and practices related to major global changes in information management focusing on information in operation, information services, information exchanges and information security. Informational and technical presentations from key participants, across various industries, will provide opportunities for NextGen and SESAR air transportation information management experts to learn and explore alternative practices within the aviation environment experts global programs and initiatives. The conference is hosted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) on September 23-24, 2019 at:

MITRE Corporation
7525 Colshire Dr.
McLean, VA 22102

Background The Conference is sponsored by the FAA's Air Traffic Organization, NextGen Organization, in cooperation with EUROCONTROL. Our combined missions are to manage the information necessary to ensure the safety, regularity and efficiency of air navigation.

Audience FAA, ICAO, EUROCONTROL, Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc., and individuals from various organizations representing the global aviation government and industry community.

"ATM Operational excellence through superior information. Handle the expected, Tackle the unknown, Solve the issue."

Call for Speakers Are you an expert in information management in the air traffic management industry? FAA is actively seeking 4 keynote speakers and 16 breakout session speakers for this year's Air Traffic Information Exchange Conference (ATIEC).

Do you know someone who belongs at this year's ATIEC? Are you inspired by how information management is making a measurable impact on the global ATM?

Air Transportation Information Exchange Conference (ATIEC)

The global ATM operation is expanding and continues to drive an integrated environment to support the current and future aviation industry. Advancements in technology are leading to a more information-rich environment. Information is one of the essential aspects of what makes the air transportation system work and it will be increasingly important in a (connected) network environment as envisaged by the SWIM concept. The global improvements in information management support the integration of the ATM network critical to provide a safe and efficient global ATM operation.

The scope and scale of ATM require a partnership to manage the different aspects of information as a global commodity, focusing on best practices that can be applied to the exchange, delivery, and discovery of global ATM information. ATM operations benefit from up to date information to better plan, to update procedures, and to create protocols to handle predictable challenges and adapt to the unknown to create a safer and more efficient ATM environment. This is enabled by fast, accessible and secured information management capabilities that enable decision makers to proactively tackle problems before they arise. The quality of information is also the quintessential underpinning of both global ATM operational excellence and business intelligence.

Key Aspects:

  1. Information in Operations: Ensuring solution/procedures/technologies envisioned to increase capacity and efficiency consider the operational needs. TBO, PBN, 4DT, UTM. How are the future ATM operation concepts driving the ATM information management needs?
  2. Information Services: Provides an ATM business sharing capability. How information will be accessed/delivered/transformed? SWIM infrastructure and enabled applications for the future global ATM network.
  3. Information Exchanges: Enabling the sharing of information in a digital format within a specific domain that ensure/encourage harmonization that supports interoperability. What is the future of the individual information exchange models/standards?
  4. Information Security: Overview of aviation information security and the requirements for its information security framework. Explore future of security services and solution for aviation industry.


Registration is open from June 15 through August 22, 2019.
