ATC Global Unveils 2013 Conference Agenda

LONDON, Aug. 22, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- ATC Global revealed today an agenda for its 2013 three day conference, taking place on 12-14 March in Amsterdam, that will spark honest debate about the current progress with global ATM interoperability. A panel assembled to represent stakeholders from every global region will answer the difficult questions, discuss the current strategies in place and steer debate towards a more robust framework for accountability that will instil confidence in those funding this leap forward in technology and service.

Paula Milburn, ATC Global Director, said: "ATC Global 2013 will be a unique opportunity for the full breadth of the ATM community to discuss the true implications of ICAO's November 2012 Air Navigation Conference within a well-established, independent and inclusive forum. This agenda has been designed in close consultation with industry experts to reflect the growing concerns of regulators, ANSP's, suppliers, airports and aircraft operators".

The first day will address the progress being made with the ANC 2012 Block Upgrades. Special focus will be given to Latin America and other growth regions to highlight the effects that NextGen, the implementation of the Single European Sky and ASBUs will have on regional operations and global harmonisation.

The second day will evaluate the reality of progress made by ANSPs so far. Through an interactive visual 'Scorecard' the panel will review and measure their effectiveness in delivering real world progress, as well as discuss the subject of accountability. This conference will shine a cold light on how the governance and structure of individual ANSPs might be affecting the way they implement regulatory requirements.

The final day will bring the discussion back to the timetable of implementation and give conference participants the opportunity to evaluate the uptake of new technology; examining the differing requirements between all global regions and the varying obstacles to implementation. This is an opportunity to set out a realistic timetable for the delivery of credible benefits to the air transport system.

Due to enthusiastic feedback from attendees of the 2012 event, the ATC Global 2013 conference has developed from two days into three days. This directly addresses the wishes of our ATM stakeholders to have greater participation in panel sessions, to be able to see a larger variety of presenters and to have the time to draw effective conclusions.

The conference agenda can now be viewed in full on the website at A published list of speakers will follow shortly.
