BLUE MED FAB and FABEC are happy to invite you to the  research workshop on Interdependencies within ATM Performance in the context of a dynamic environment which will be hosted in Rome in spring 2020. The conference is organised in partnership with the German Aviation Research Society (G.A.R.S.) and the University of Bologna.


Aim of the Conference

Since the start of the Single European Sky initiative, the key performance areas safety, capacity, environment and cost-efficiency have been the backbone of performance management in air traffic management (ATM). After two reference periods of the EU performance scheme, these measures have become established as the key reference points of ATM legislation and service provision. However, after almost ten years of operational experience, there is still a need to have a more detailed look at what these indicators mean in practice, how they influence service delivery and investment decisions, and to what extent there are trade-offs and interdependencies.  
The workshop will explore the impact of these measurement criteria and examine the implications of interdependencies between the four key performance areas. The analysis will be set in the context of the changing aviation market which is subject to new and challenging geopolitical developments, growing environmental concerns, climate change and their impacts on traffic growth and volatility. Furthermore there are other factors influencing the delivery of air traffic services including the expansion of digital technology, and these too prompt questions about the scope of the existing performance framework.
