AIAA Announces New Title for Journal of Aerospace Computing, Information, and Communications Written 27 February 2013

(AIAA Communciations 2008–2017)

February 27, 2013 – Reston, Va. – The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) has changed the name of its Journal of Aerospace Computing, Information, and Communication (JACIC) to the Journal of Aerospace Information Systems (JAIS). The new title and publication scope allows JAIS to focus on a wider variety of research within the aerospace information systems community than was possible under the old scope of the JACIC.

“With studies noting that software for a modern commercial aircraft accounts for 50% of the entire cost of the aircraft, and with the extensive use of computing and information systems that have extended the capabilities, performance, autonomy and resilience of aerospace systems to unprecedented levels, AIAA’s Journal of Aerospace Information Systems (JAIS) offers the aerospace community a premier journal, focused on the theoretical developments, novel applications and case studies regarding the information systems which have become the foundation of modern aerospace,” stated JAIS Editor-in-Chief Dr. Ashok N. Srivastava.

JAIS is devoted to the dissemination of original archival research papers describing new theoretical developments, novel applications, and case studies regarding advances in aerospace computing, information, and communication systems. Topics covered by JAIS include: Aerospace systems and software engineering; verification and validation of embedded systems; the field known as “big data”; data analytics, machine learning, and knowledge management for aerospace systems; human-automation interaction; and systems health management for aerospace systems. Applications of autonomous systems, systems engineering principles, and safety and mission assurance are of particular interest.

JAIS also features Technical Notes that discuss particular technical innovations or applications in the topics described above. It also seeks papers that rigorously review the results of recent research developments. In addition to original research papers and reviews, the journal publishes articles that review books, conferences, social media, and new educational modes applicable to the scope of its coverage.
