AvioSE'21, February, 23, 2021, virtual conference

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.



Announcement of keynote speakers

The AVIOSE21 workshop is accompanied by two keynote speakers.

  • Andreas Bierig from DLR Braunschweig. He is the head of the department "Sichere Systeme und System Engineering".
  • Rolf Büse from Diehl Aerospace. He is the chief expert on Aircraft Systems Engineering.

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 CEUR-WS.

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

How to Contribute?

The papers must follow IEEE (double column) 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 planned as an all-day event. There will be a mini-conference giving space to the authors of the accepted papers to present their work. Moreover, invited experts will give insights on important avionics topics in keynote presentations. Last, interactive group and panel session will be organized for exchanging experiences and fostering the network. The workshop language is English.
