OpenSky Network Workshop 2019 Programme Announcement

Since its launch in 2013, the OpenSky Network has quickly evolved to a large-scale air traffic control data collection and sharing platform. With now more than 2000 sensors operated by volunteers across the globe and more than 10000 users, the OpenSky Network is today greatly contributing towards the vision of a more efficient, secure and reliable operation of the airspace by providing open accessibility of air traffic control data to the public. Following the successful workshops in the last years, we are proud to announce the sixth instance of the OpenSky workshop.

This two-day event will take place in Zurich (Switzerland) in November 2019. The event is targeted at anyone interested in data-based aviation research. The workshop will serve as a forum to discuss new ideas, the network itself, and research activities around the OpenSky Network. Participants are invited to actively contribute to the program by presenting their projects at the workshop. As in the last years, there will be many opportunities to get to know the community during the social activities around the workshop program. In the past years, the workshop attracted a diverse and interesting audience from research, authorities, and industry.

The OpenSky Workshop 2019 proceedings will be published as a volume in the EasyChair EPiC series.
