Air Transportation Information Exchange Conference (ATIEC)

Presented by NextGen in partnership with EUROCONTROL.

Purpose: The Air Transportation Information Exchange Conference (ATIEC) provides 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, provide opportunities for air transportation information management experts to learn and explore innovative practices within the aviation environment as well as global programs and initiatives.

The 2023 ATIEC was held on May 31, 2023 – June 2, 2023, at George Mason University's Mason Square-Van Metre Hall, in Arlington, Virginia. This conference brought together experts from around the world to inform and discuss topics in the following content areas:

  • System Wide Information Management (SWIM)
  • Traffic Management Ecosystems
  • Information Exchange Models (AIXM, FIXM, iWXXM)
  • Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics

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 providing 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 for better planning, procedure updates, and creation of protocols to handle predictable challenges and adapt to the unknown. This will allow for the creation of a safer and more efficient ATM environment. This is enabled by fast, accessible and secured information management capabilities that allow 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.
