ATACCS is the first of a series of scientific conferences that are going 
to be organized on the theme of Automation in Command and Control Systems.

ATACCS is focused on applications and theories that are related to the 
replacement of human roles by technology (i.e. through automation). The 
main goal of automation systems is to improve processes through the use 
of technology. In the context of ATACCS, automation implies the use of a 
system to administer the tasks of human thus reassigning the human to 
the functions of conformance monitoring and automation management.

ATACCS is brainchild of HALA! Research Network (Higher Automation Levels 
in ATM: which is supported by the framework 
of SESAR WP-E; a framework setup to spearhead long term and innovative 
research in automation of ATM in pursuit of the SESAR 2020 vision and 

This conference is of particular interests for many application domains 
in particular (but not limited to):
- Air Traffic Management
- Rail and traffic management
- Healthcare systems
- Space operations
- Cockpits for aerial and terrestrial vehicles
- Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV)
