2nd International Conference on Application and Theory of Automation in 
Command and Control Systems
Imperial College, London, UK — May 29-31, 2012

*** Overview
ATACCS'2012 is the second of a series of scientific conferences on the 
theme of Automation in Command and Control Systems. The first was 
organized in Barcelona, Spain, and gathered more than one hundred 

ATACCS is focused on applications and theories that are related to the 
replacement of human roles by technology (i.e. through automation). In 
the context of ATACCS, automation implies the use of systems to 
administer the tasks of humans including conformance monitoring and 
automation management. This raises enormous technical, ethical, 
organizational and safety challenges.

ATACCS is the brainchild of the HALA! Research Network (Higher 
Automation Levels in Air Traffic Management) which is supported by SESAR 
WP-E; a framework setup to spearhead long term and innovative research 
in automation of Air Traffic Management in pursuit of the SESAR 2020 
vision and beyond. Despite this strong relationship with ATM, ATACCS 
welcomes submissions from all other domains and industries dealing with 
automation in command and control systems.

All submissions to the conference will be peer reviewed by members of 
the program committee. Accepted contributions will be published in the 
conference proceedings as well as in the ACM Digital Library.
