AvioSE'23, February, 21, 2023, Paderborn, Germany

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.



Mission accomplished

The AvioSE'23 was successfully conducted in Paderborn. Many thanks to all contributors, i.e. authors, keynotes, panelists and the audience! We enjoyed the event very much. We are looking forward to see you again at AvioSE'24.

How can avionics benefit from cloud or edge computing? (utilization of e.g. Gaia-X, etc.)

Cloud computing and edge computing are ubiquitous technology trends in general IT. The frequency of cloud and edge being mentioned in relation with avionics functions increases. We would like to discuss the experience, needs, benefits and risks of edge on cloud computing for avionics systems. Therefore, this will be the hot topic of the AvioSE23 panel discussion. We are looking forward to your thoughts.

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 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. The preliminary program can be found below.
