Facing flight centred air traffic control (ATC) and more monitoring tasks at future controller working positions (CWP), it becomes even more important that air traffic controllers (ATCo) always focus their attention at the relevant spots on their human machine interface (HMI). This paper outlines relevant literature about attention and attention guidance (AG) in different domains, explains the concept for an AG prototype for sectorless air traffic management (ATM) and the plan for its validation in the course of Single European Sky ATM Research (PJ.16-04-03, SESAR2020). The AG prototype considers three aspects. First, the desired area of attention: An assistance system calculates where the ATCo should look at depending on input data like radar and flight plan data. Second, an external system relying on eye tracking and user inputs determines where the current ATCo focus is. Third, if the desired and the actual area of attention are not the same, mechanisms to guide the ATCo's attention will be triggered taking a strategy of escalating visual cues into account. The latter comprises an intelligent display of action indicators with respect to time, position and appearance as well as pre-tactical inattention indicators. The AG prototype aims to increase controller productivity, improve situation awareness as well as reduce workload and stress level in a future flight centred ATC environment.
