IFP Conference Barcelona May 22-24, 2018 - UPDATE

We have confirmed the venue, Sala d' Empren at Barcelona Activa next to Glories Shopping Center. Furthermore, I can confirm some speakers. We will provide some continuity to last years conference. Attendees will remember that Dr. Yoshi Nakanishi, Associate Professor at Nagasaki University with a very long past in aviation as Chief Flight Procedure Designer has presented outcomes of his study "how Flight procedure Designers learn". He continued the study, part of which was also a survey made at the Lisbon conference. So this year, Yoshi will present the continuation of the study.

Then we had speeches from Martin Zillig to show database coding aspects in the PBN with xLS domain, followed by the cockpit side, shown by Airbus Avionics Engineer Patrice Rouquette.
This covered the first set of criteria for PBN in conjunction with xLS. This year we hope to have Robert Bukovics, the PBN Rapporteur of the IFPP giving an outlook on the next phase of the same criteria, namely RF legs to xLS. For continuity I would like to have Martin again to give some coding insight and then we will have Patrice showing the cockpit side for the new proposed criteria as well.

Other spekers will be Thomas Wede and Fabrizio Maracich, the topic will be the FVP perspective on reporting of Flight Procedures and information exchange between FVP and Designers.

I have some other requests made but cannot quite confirm yet. Check back for an update soon.
