Following the first conference on digitalisation and its possible impact on ATM, the idea to leave a written trace, where some of the organisers and the participants, and in particular IFATCA could elaborate on the fears, the expectations and the possible challenges could be addressed, with an ambition to be close to the operational world, with sufficient scientific input that can be used by other stakeholders interested in the ATM world and not just the air traffic controllers community.

The summary of presentations of the workshop relates the debate of the conference and is an independent document. Following the workshop, IFATCA has asked some of the participants to share their views on the debate but as well on the challenge ahead of us. The editors hope that this first edition it will give the reader further food for thought, a repository of ideas and some further references for the future work.

IFATCA is grateful to the authors for their contribution.
