Modelling and Simulation are being used extensively in aerospace projects for design, validation and training purposes. The current trend towards reduction of project budgets and internationalisation of the aerospace market makes of simulation an important asset for industrial competitiveness. Shortening the time to market and reducing system design and integration costs are clear targets. One of the challenges today is how to improve the development methodology of aerospace systems so that the benefits of modern simulation techniques can be best exploited. The astonishing development of the price/performance ratio of modern low-end computers is yet to be assimilated by the simulation industry to provide powerful simulation tools and applications at affordable prices.

The Air Transportation and Aerospace track will review the issues presented above with emphasis on the cutting edge simulation technology and how can it be effectively applied to meet project objectives. The following topics are considered to deserve special attention without the intention of being exhaustive:
