Call For Papers

The 6th International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation (IPIN) will host a PhD Forum that will provide an opportunity for PhD students to present their research to the IPIN community and receive individual feedback from leading researchers in the field. To motivate interaction between PhD students and experts both from academia and industry the Forum will be organized as a poster session during the main conference.

We encourage submissions from all students who have not yet received their PhD degrees, including Early Stage PhD students presenting work in progress, as well as Advanced PhD students who plan to graduate in 2015-2016. Students are expected to submit a 2-page extended abstract about their dissertation research on the same topics of interest as the main IPIN 2015 conference to be considered for the Forum.

Submissions will be reviewed by the PhD Forum Committee to ensure quality, relevance, and potential benefit from attendance to the Forum. Authors of accepted submissions are expected to participate in person and to present a poster at the Forum.
