IPIN 2011 : 2011 International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation
Call For Papers
COLLABORATIVE POSITIONING AND NAVIGATION
Join the international community on Indoor Positioning and Navigation.
The IPIN International Conference, first organized by ETH Zurich in 2010, showed to be the forum of excellence to join researchers, system developers, and service providers in the area of indoor positioning and navigation. With hundreds of participants, both from academia and industry, it was proved that there is a large and very active community working in indoor positioning and navigation worldwide.
The IPIN 2011 International Conference builds on the success of the previous year conference, and aims to consolidate IPIN as the worldwide reference in this area. Indoor positioning and navigation is clearly a multidisciplinary area of research, integrating electronics, computer science, communications, geographic information systems, and … people. Recognizing the role of users in the architecture and functioning of many positioning systems, this year’s conference is dedicated to Collaborative Positioning and Navigation.
The conference encourages the submission of contributions in one of the following topics:
1. User Requirements
2. Hybrid IMU Pedestrian Navigation & Foot Mounted Navigation
3. High Sensitive GNSS, GNSS Indoor, Pseudolites
4. Signal Strength Based Methods, Fingerprinting
5. UWB (Ultra Wide Band)
6. Passive & Active RFID
7. Optical Systems
8. Ultra Sound Systems
9. TOF, TDOA based Localization
10. Localisation, Algorithms for WSN
11. Frameworks for Hybrid Positioning
12. Applications of Location Awareness & Context Detection
13. Industrial Metrology & Geodetic Systems, iGPS
14. Radar Systems
15. Mapping, SLAM
16. Magnetic Localization
17. Innovative Systems
