The start of conference season is once again upon us, and we're kicking it off with a trip to the NOAA Science Center in Silver Springs, Maryland.

The event is hosted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and jointly partnered by EUROCONTROL.

The conference provides a forum to discuss and exchange concepts and practices related to major global changes in the rapidly growing Aeronautical Information Management (AIM) community. It will also provide a check point on the progress for the large scale aviation initiatives NextGen (USA) and SESAR (Europe).
