Call For Papers

Participants and Focus

Built on the success of previous conferences in this series, LBS 2018 is addressed to scholars, researchers, digital industry / market operators, and students of different backgrounds (scientific, engineering and humanistic) whose work is either focused on or relevant to location based services (LBS). The conference will offer a common ground to colleagues from various disciplines and practice where they can meet, interact and exchange knowledge, experience, plans and ideas on how LBS can and could be improved and on how it will influence both science and society.

We invite contributions in the following areas (but not limited to):

Outdoor and indoor positioning
Multi-sensor systems and sensor fusion
Smartphone-based positioning
Smart environments and ambient spatial intelligence
Indoor spatial data model and mapping
Spatio-temporal data acquisition, processing, and analysis
LBS, crowdsourcing and volunteered geographic information (VGI)
Location-based social networks
Geotagged big data
Personalization and context-aware adaptation
Visualization techniques for LBS
Novel user interfaces and interaction techniques
3D and augmented reality
Innovative LBS systems and applications
Wayfinding and navigation
LBS and transportation applications
User studies and evaluations
Privacy and usability
Human factors in LBS
Smart cities
Legal, ethical and business aspects in LBS
Open source solutions and standards


We invite the following types of contributions:

Full papers – to present significant scientific results. Full papers will be peer-reviewed. High-quality submissions will be accepted for presentation at the conference and published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography Series. The program committee may decide to accept full paper submissions as work-in-progress papers instead. Manuscripts must describe original work that has neither been published before, nor is currently under review elsewhere. Papers must be written in English according to the template, and must not exceed 22 pages (including title, figures and references). Full papers must be submitted in PDF format through the Easychair website by 12 July 2017.

Work in progress – to present ongoing work. Short papers will be peer-reviewed. Work-in-progress papers should include succinct and sufficient information about research objectives, significance, method, and preliminary or expected findings. If accepted, you are either invited to give an oral or a poster presentation at the conference (decision by the program committee). Your work-in-progress paper will be published in the online proceedings of the conference (with an ISBN). Work-in-progress papers (up to 5 pages, including title, figures and references) must be written in English using the template and submitted through the Easychair website by 12 July 2017.

Showcases – live presentations of research prototypes and products. Showcase abstracts will be reviewed by the PC chairs and, if accepted, published in the online proceedings of the conference. Showcase abstracts (up to 2 pages, using the template) must be written in English and submitted through the Easychair website by 15 November 2017.

The best accepted full and work-in-progress papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the Journal of Location Based Services by Taylor & Francis.

Please note that when submitting your contribution through the Easychair website, you should indicate the category (Full papers, Work in progress, Showcase) you want to submit.

Please make sure that full paper and work-in-progress paper submissions are anonymized:
Do not include any information that could reveal your identity. The title section of your manuscript should not contain any author names, email addresses, or affiliation status. In the body of your submission, eliminate all direct references to your own previous work, i.e., you must discuss your own previous work as if it had been written by somebody else. Please do not disproportionately cite your own previous work. Thank you!
