The 4th OpenSky Workshop
Since its launch in 2013, the OpenSky Network has quickly evolved to a large-scale air traffic control data collection and sharing platform. With now more than 100 sensors operated by volunteers across the globe, the OpenSky Network is today greatly contributing towards the vision of a more efficient, secure and reliable operation of the airspace by providing open accessibility of air traffic control data to the public.
Following the successful workshops in 2013, 2014, and 2015, we are proud to announce the fourth instance of the OpenSky workshop. The two-day workshop will take place in Oxford (UK) in November 2016. The event is open to all contributors of the network (sensor operators, system developers and administrators, and researchers) as well as to any interested party that wishes to get involved to the OpenSky Network in the future.
The workshop will serve as a forum to discuss new ideas, the network itself, and research activities around the OpenSky Network. Participants are invited to actively contribute to the program by presenting their projects at the workshop. In addition to that, the workshop will include technical talks on OpenSky's architecture and data at first hand. As in the last years, there will be many opportunities to get to know the community during the social activities around the workshop program.
