Air Traffic Control

Air Traffic Control has been an application field of Marc Schoenauer’s work since the late 90s (PhD theses of F. Médioni in 98 and S. Oussedik in 2000). It was revived recently with Gaëtan Marceau-Caron’s CIFRE PhD together with Thalès Air Systems (Areski Hadjaz) and Thalès TRT (Pierre Savéant), around global optimization of the traffic in order to increase the capacity of the airspace without overloading the controllers. A new formulation of the problem, modeling the plane flows with Bayesian Networks, has been proposed in the Air Traffic Control community in 2013. In 2014, the corresponding stochastic multi-objective optimization problem has been tackled by Evolutionary Algorithms, leading to a general approach to uncertainty handling in Multi-Objective Evolutionary Algorithms [38] , [59] . All details in Gaëtan's PhD [4] .
