The 10th OpenSky Symposium

10/11 November 2022 at TU Delft, Netherlands


Since its launch in 2013, the OpenSky Network has quickly evolved to a large-scale air traffic control data collection and sharing platform. With more than 4500 sensors registered across the globe and more than 25000 users, the OpenSky Network is 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 events in past years, we are proud to announce the 10th OpenSky Symposium. The two-day event will be hosted by TU Delft (Netherlands) in November 2022 and is also supported by the Performance Review Commission (PRC) of EUROCONTROL. The PRC aims to establish an Open Performance Data platform available in cooperation with Opensky Network and its community.

The event is targeted at anyone interested in data-based aviation research. The Symposium will serve as a forum to discuss new ideas, the network itself, and research activities around OpenSky. Participants are invited to actively contribute to the program by presenting their projects at the Symposium. In the past years, the symposium attracted a diverse and interesting audience from research, authorities, and industry.

We are principally aiming for an in-person event to foster creative exchanges and discussions. There will be many opportunities to get to know the community during the social activities around the Symposium program.
