The SESAR Innovation Days are the main vehicle for SESAR to share progress and disseminate results of its innovative research programme. With the transition from SESAR Workpackage E (long-term and innovative research) to SESAR 2020 ER (Exploratory Research) the 2016 SIDs will see a mix of mature research projects presenting their final results and new projects, recently started, presenting their approach and first results. In addition to disseminating results of SESAR research projects, papers and posters are invited in an open call for contributions.

The 6th edition of the SESAR Innovation Days will be hosted by Technical University of Delft, The Netherlands, from 8 – 10 November 2016. The SESAR Innovation Days will include technical paper sessions, keynote presentations, panel sessions, together with exhibits and poster sessions, thus providing an ideal forum for networking. In particular we seek contributions from the wider ATM research community through this open call.
