AvioSE'24, February, 27, 2024, Linz, Austria

Software development in the aerospace domain is driven by demanding fault tolerance, increasing complexity, new application potentials, rising certification effort, and increasing cost pressure. New software development methodologies are required for future applications such as e.g. Advanced Air Mobility (AAM), aircrew (workload) reduction, and further enhancement of existing functionality. At the same time, there are challenges in communication and navigation in airspace, certification for multi-core processors, artificial intelligence (AI) as well as security of software, hardware, and connectivity.



Proceedings released

The proceedings for the AvioSE'24 are available here.


Panel announced

We are happy to welcome Steven VanderLeest, Stefan Brunthaler and Stephane Poulain as our panelists in the panel discussion on "Avionics Cyber-Security".


Registration open

Participation requires a registration for at least the workshops of SE-2024. The registration is now open. Early bird rates are available until Jan 10th.


Preliminary program compiled

Please find the preliminary program of the AvioSE'23 here. Return later for updates.


Author notifications sent

All contributors where informed via email about the acceptance or not acceptance of their paper. Final papers have to be prepared by Dec 15 (extended).


Keynote teaser

We will not reveal our keynotes today, but we can teaser that the two big players Airbus and Boeing both confirmed a keynote. Stay tuned!


Cyber-security == hot topic 2024

Cyber-security is mandatory for aircraft certification. However, process and methods are still under development. There are still unknowns, e.g. regarding continued airworthiness. Cyber-security is the hot topic for the AvioSE'24. Cyber-security will be discussed in keynotes and the panel discussion. We are looking forward to your inputs.

Participation as an author or listener requires a registration at the hosting conference SE24.

Call for Papers ( PDF )

The objective of the workshop is the presentation of methods and technologies of the avionics domain. Topics of interest, but not limited to these, are:

Development technologies (e.g. model-based systems and software engineering):

Development methods (e.g. deployment of AI):

Quality assurance methods (e.g. model-based tests, formal methods):

Product technologies (e.g. applications of AI):

Vision papers

Type of submission and conditions

We welcome two kinds of contributions:

All accepted contributions will be published within the SE-workshop proceedings.

!!! Accepted contributions must be presented by one of the authors in person. One author must be registered for the workshop or full SE before the final manuscript deadline!!!

How to Contribute?

The papers must follow LNI formatting guidelines.

The papers are to be submitted using EasyChair. If you do not have an EasyChair account, you need to create a new one. The text of the abstract should not exceed 200 words.

Assessment and Selection of Submissions

The requested submissions lie in the field of expertise of the Organisation and Program Committee. They are assessed according to the following scientific criteria:


The workshop is an all-day event. It is a mini-conference giving space to the authors of the accepted papers to present their work. Moreover, invited experts give insights on important avionics topics in keynote presentations. Last, a panel session with experts is organized for exchanging experiences and fostering the network. The workshop language is English. An early preliminary program can be found below.
