In the 4th Software Challenges in Aerospace symposium, we will again bring together experts at the intersection of aerospace and computer science. We will focus on software for flight operations (both on the vehicle and ground), and place a priority on the design and analysis of software-intensive aerospace systems for safety assurance. The goal of this symposium is to foster innovation and discussion across the divide between the two academic communities. We place an emphasis on demonstrable research on real-world applications, with clear extensions to aerospace software.

Papers will appear in the 2017 SciTech proceedings. Select papers from the first symposium were invited to extend their papers for a special issue of the Journal of Aerospace Information Systems.

We invite papers of the following types:

  • Papers that clearly describe gaps in the capabilities or policies related to aerospace software, and that illuminate frontiers where research will be necessary in order to make progress.
  • Papers which push the boundaries and deliver results in software-intensive systems, highlighting techniques that enable the intelligent and efficient management of system complexity.
