NTSB ATC safety seminar
Attendees will have the rare opportunity to hear from local FAA Air Traffic Controllers, who will discuss policies and procedures which are important for pilots to understand while navigating through one of the most complex and busiest airspace locales in the Washington DC Terminal area. They will also discuss phraseology and communication procedures for pilots to be able to navigate the local airspace with ease.
The four-hour seminar is free, and pilots participating in the FAA’s WINGS program will receive credit for attendance.
Because space is limited, early registration is highly recommended.

MMT-2015 will be an open forum to discuss the most recent technologies and their applications, to exchange experiences and to promote future research aiming at technological advancement and improved professional practice in the fields related to mobile mapping.
The Symposium will feature keynote speakers, oral and interactive poster sessions, industry panel discussions, technical case studies; pre-Symposium workshops and a trade exhibition, as well as a variety of entertaining social events.
UK Drone Show
The (UK) Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the national telecoms regulator (Ofcom) will be taking the stage at December’s UK Drone Show in Birmingham to impart the latest drone and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) information to experts in the drone industry. This event, to be held on 5 and 6 December at Birmingham’s NEC Arena, will see the CAA present and discuss UAV and drone regulations with commercial and consumer customers for the first time in what is said to be the UK’s only public exhibition dedicated to the safe use of drone and UAV technology.
ACI Conference on Investing in Airports
The conference will provide an unprecedented opportunity to discuss economic oversight and regulation with a variety of aviation stakeholders, including ICAO, state regulators, airport operators, airlines and investors. According to a statement issued by ICAO this event marks the first time a full conference will be dedicated to learning about how changes to airport governance models and airport management practices are encouraging regulators worldwide to take new approaches to airport oversight and regulation.
Participants will also have an opportunity to engage in a pre-conference workshop where regulatory frameworks and airport governance and investment structures will be addressed.
International Maritime Transport & Technology Conference

5 November Author registration deadline
International Symposium on GNSS is intended to bring together world-leading experts engaged in PNT and GNSS technologies including industry professionals, practitioners, academics and researchers to disseminate their latest research results and allow cross-disciplinary exchange of knowledge to further advance in this area.
The program will include keynote addresses, oral presentations, interactive poster sessions, panel sessions, open interactive forums and an informative trade exhibition.
The Asia and Pacific Rim meeting of the CGIC (Civil GPS Service Interface Committee) will be co-located with ISGNSS 2015 to help improve understanding of the world trends in developing and deploying GNSS.
15th IAIN World Congress
When you hear the word navigation, do you also feel the breath of the romantic past? Nowadays it is not just a few ships. Millions of people travel every day to distant places, ‘vessels’ not only cross the seas but also ride the highways and fly in the sky. If only a small percentage would not reach their destination in time, there would be great financial losses and worse, loss of life. Our demands on navigation and its accuracy and reliability are rapidly growing.
That’s why navigation systems utilize the latest knowledge of physics and mathematics and the most advanced technologies. That is also why we must monitor their latest developments.
So, we’re very pleased to organize IAIN’s World Congress in Prague this year. We invite you to meet modern navigation in person and we invite you to beautiful and hospitable Prague, full of historic treasures, music and arts.

Resilient PNT Forum IV
The fourth Forum on Resilient Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) will be held from 1600-1800 on 20 October 2015, immediately preceding the Conference in the same venue.
The inherent vulnerability of GNSS to disruption makes it essential to provide resilient supporting systems, particularly for safety of life and economically critical applications. Robust systems in the presence of interference, with integrity monitoring and authentication, can only be achieved through cooperative efforts by industry, administrations and user groups.
The objective of this fourth Forum is to focus on identifying resilient PNT solutions that support activities across all applications of navigation and timing and formulating an action plan to make them a reality.
There is no charge for this event, but those wishing to attend are invited to register their interest with the organisers.
IALA workshop on human factors and ergonomics in VTS
The workshop is directed towards those involved in management and operation of VTS Centres, VTS Training Organisations and those with expertise/an interest in human factor management. The working language of the workshop will be English.
Considering the increasing international awareness, public perception and expectation of VTS, the workshop will ensure that matters related to human factors and ergonomics are adequately addressed in both the training of VTS personnel and the day to day operation of VTS Centres.
Take a look at the flyer for further details.
Addressed to scientists and professionals in order to share their expert knowledge, experience and research results the event will concern a wealth of aspects of navigation, safety of navigation and sea transport.
European Navigation Conference 2015
The European Navigation Conference is an annual congress organized under the auspices of the European Group of Institutes of Navigation (EUGIN). Gathering 150 members of the scientific community and more than 300 guests overall, the ENC is a unique opportunity to meet all the key players in the navigation area. It is renowned for its high-level scientific activities highlighted during the conference and the wide range of topics covered.
International Navigation Conference
In this first event in a brand new series of world-class conferences, we will be highlighting the state of the art in fields like GNSS and Galileo, indoor positioning, autonomous transport, security and resilience of navigation in the world of cyber attacks, and new quantum technologies. The conference will be of special interest to the maritime, aviation, PNT, transport, research and development and security communities.
Conference call for papers is open until 24th October 2014. Readers interested in submitting a paper are invited to use this link.
Exhibition and sponsorship packages are also available, visitors are invited to contact Sally-Anne Coole at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or use this link.
