For the first time the SESAR Innovation Days (SID) programme committee took on board the ASDA debate format in a session. Furthermore ASDA board members were asked to actively participate as guides in the two matches.
The 5th edition of the SESAR Innovation Days were hosted by Università di Bologna, Italy from 1st – 3rd December 2015. Unlike other scientific events in ATM research, the SESAR Innovation Days focus explicitly on long-term and innovative research. The SESAR Innovation Days include technical paper sessions, keynote presentations, contributions from the WP-E Research Networks together with exhibits and posters.
