The workshop aims at bringing together an international community of educators, researchers and
practitioners of aerospace engineering to discuss new courses, methodologies and tools specifically
dedicated to teaching automatic controls in aerospace engineering.
Scientists and engineers from industry, research institutes and universities involved in aerospace
control education are invited to attend the Workshop and to contribute to the scientific program.
WACE 2024 will be a hybrid event, with support for virtual participation.

Invited session proposals are solicited in all of the topic areas of the conference as well as in new or emerging technical areas. Papers in an invited session should form a cohesive focus on the relevant topic. Inclusion of a reasonable diversity of viewpoints is encouraged.
Specifically, the Workshop aims at showcasing academic and industrial tools suitable for aerospace education, therefore invited sessions dealing with demonstrations of hardware and software tools are welcome.
The session proposal should include a one- to two-page document describing the motivation and relevance of the proposed session. The document should also include session organizer contact information and provide a few sentences that describe each invited paper. On submission of the invited session proposal the organizer will receive a session code to be sent to each contributor for the submission of the individual papers.
