    ·         Airline Operations Control (effective integration, coordination, processes)

    ·         Delay cost modeling and management

    ·         Post-operations analysis and feedback

    ·         Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) initiatives for airport and airspace

    This year we have 75 people (and counting) from 40 organizations (airline, academic and industry) joining us. Details are on the 56th Symposium Attendees page.

    Join us at the SWIM Workshop on 10 October 2016 to participate in a one-of-a-kind open forum involving Airlines, ANSPs, data aggregators as well as research & academia – all coming together to collectively brainstorm on how to make the most out of SWIM as it gains momentum on a global scale.

    Now that more real-time data is becoming available (for free) via SWIM, it is time to explore what value this data can provide to airlines. The live SWIM feeds are well-positioned to complement existing data used by airlines or provide faster/cheaper ways of getting that same data – in both cases providing airlines opportunities not just for improvement and efficiency but more importantly for innovation.

    The workshop is structured in 3 parts:

    (1) Part 1: Sets the stage by providing a summary of the state of the art in SWIM from the perspectives of ANSPs, Airlines and vendors.

    (2) Part 2: Showcases SWIM implementation success stories presented by invited speakers from the industry

    (3) Part 3: Focuses on the future opportunities of leveraging SWIM in a moderated discussion with participants and on brainstorming necessary steps to be taken by all stakeholders to get the most out of SWIM.

    Who will benefit?

    - Airlines

    - ANSPs

    - Data aggregators

    - Application providers/system integrators

    - Research & Academia

    What topics will be covered?

    - SWIM State of the Art

    - Success stories of using SWIM

    - Innovation driven by SWIM

    - Use cases for using SWIM to do things differently or more efficiently

    - Roadmap for making the most out of SWIM
