AvioSE'22, February, 22, 2022, virtual

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., autonomous air transport, aircrew workload reduction, commercial UAVs, 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 as well as security of software, hardware, and connectivity.



Mission accomplished!

AvioSE’22 is over. We would like thank all authors, keynote speakers, panel member, the committee, and the audience for enabling this very valuable event. We are looking forward to repeat this 2023. Please stay tuned on aviose.github.io. Please find below the virtual whiteboard that was filled live during the workshop. It summarizes how the audience reacted to presentations and panel discussion, and documents questions and answers during the workshop.


Program released

The program for the AvioSE'22 is compiled. We are delighted to announce six papers, three keynote speakers and a panel discussion.


Registration open

The registration page opened up. You are now able to register for the AvioSE'22 or the full SE'22. Find the registration here.


Acceptance notifications sent

Acceptance notifications were sent out. Authors please make sure to revise your paper according to the remarks until Jan 31.


Paper submission deadline extended

Paper submission deadline is extended until 10th of December 2021.


AvioSE'22 theme announcement

This year we decided for

Safe and secure avionics architectures (e.g. IMA, platforms, multi-core, networks, clouds, middleware)

as the AvioSE'22 theme. The theme will be the base-line of our panel discussion.


Keynote speaker teaser

We are preparing three keynotes. The probability is high, that experts from Airbus D&S, Airbus Cabin, and TU Berlin share their knowledge with the AvioSE'22 attendees.


Workshop announcement

The organization team and the program committee applied for the conduction of the workshop co-located with SE22. We look forward to your contribution and participation! (The website is currently under construction.)

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:

Development methods:

Product technologies:

Vision papers

Type of submission and conditions

We welcome two kinds of contributions:

All accepted contributions will be published within the SE-workshop proceedings and be available in dl.gi.de.

!!! Accepted contributions must be presented by one of the authors in person!!!

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.
