Present CFP : 2013


Localization is touching every aspect of our everyday life. Advanced location aware services are enabled by ranging and positioning techniques attracting great attention from scientists and industry alike. Recent advances in heterogeneous sensor fusion, p2p-networks, context awareness, privacy and security are enabling new system solutions and bring in new challenges to be solved at the same time. WPNC, the premier event on Positioning and Navigation in Europe, continues to provide an international platform for exchanging latest research results and inputs from the industry. Be part of the positioning revolution and submit your original contribution to WPNC 2013.
WPNC 2013 is going to continue the successful row of preceding events and to extend it by substantial keynote speeches, in-depth tutorials and a growing number of industrial participation. Visit http://www.wpnc.net to be up-to-date to the latest program.
