ICCAS 2020

Amphitheater 4 (ISAE-SUPAERO)

Amphitheater 4


10 Avenue Edouard Belin, 31400 Toulouse FRANCE

The first international conference "ICCAS 2020" scheduled for 18 and 19 March on ISAE-SUPAERO campus will not take place.
Every day more and more restrictive measures are being taken to combat COVID-19.
For the safety of all, ISAE-SUPAERO, its Foundation and Dassault Aviation have taken the decision to postpone ICCAS 2020 to 2021, the safety of the participants and the quality of the conference have prevailed.

We would like to thank all the speakers, poster presenters and attendees for their great interest in the preparation of this conference, we will keep you informed in the coming days of the next steps.



Conference Goal

The ICCAS 2020 conference aims to promote the dissemination and exchange of scientific information on the next generation of civil and military aircraft. It provides an excellent forum for combining academic research and industrial works to examine how we can develop intelligent aeronautical systems owning more freedom of choice, sensitivity to the context, learning capabilities, and able to interact naturally with the crew while saving its mental and physical resources.

Recent trends in this field address several major aspects such as the online monitoring of the flight performances based on behavioral, physiological, and neurological measurements, the design of more ecological man-machine interfaces providing intuitive information about the flight to support decision process, and architecture rules that guarantee a high level of flight safety. The conference addresses a wide spectrum of theoretical and practical topics related to neuroergonomics and human factors, artificial intelligence or systems engineering. It is mainly focused on aeronautics but contributions from a wide range of domains such as automotive, robots, drones, or artificial agents are welcome.

Please feel free to disseminate the pdf version of the call for participation.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Neuroergonomics and human factors
    • Eye tracking, EEG, fNIRS, other measurement methods
    • Brain computer interfaces
    • Mental workload, acute stress, emotion, fatigue

This conference invites research experts and industry practitioners from multidisciplinary backgrounds. It includes invited speakers, and works’ presentation via abstract submissions and selection with an international scientific committee.

Authors are invited to submit an abstract of maximum 500 words. Abstracts will be reviewed by the program committee and may be accepted for oral or poster presentation. Online abstracts compilation will be published as open access on OATAO (Open Archive Toulouse Archive Ouverte).

Abstract submission is optional: academic, industrial, and students participants can attend the conference even without presentation or poster.

Keynotes speakers

    Jean-François Bonnefon is a Research Director at the French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. He is affiliated to the Toulouse School of Economics, the Toulouse School of Management, and the Institute for Advanced Study in Toulouse, and occupies the chair of Moral AI at the Artificial and Natural Intelligence Toulouse Institute. He is the author of 100+ scientific publications, including influential articles in outlets such as Nature and Science. He conducts research on decisions which have a moral component, especially in the context of machine ethics and human-AI cooperation. He currently serves as the president of the European Commission expert group on the ethics of driverless mobility.

     Prof. Dr. Axel Schulte is university professor of Aircraft Dynamics and Flight Guidance at the University of the Bundeswehr Munich (UBM) since 2002. Currently he is also dean of the Department of Aerospace Engineering. In 2010 he was visiting professor at the Humans and Automation Lab of MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). Prof. Schulte is co-founder of the Military Aviation Research Center (MARC) at UBM and the of spin-off start-up company HAT.tec. His research is in cognitive and cooperative cockpit assistant systems, UAV-automation, and Human-Autonomy Teaming in military flight missions. Prof. Schulte was a systems engineer in aviation industry for seven years, and technical officer of the German Air Force for ten years. His academic background is in Aerospace Engineering. He gained his Doctor-degree in 1996 and his Diploma-degree in 1990.
