ICL-GNSS 2020 : International Conference on Localization and GNSS 2020
Call For Papers
Conference scope: Reliable navigation and positioning are becoming essential in applications for IoT in industry and logistic applications, in smart city environments, for safety-critical purposes, in public services and consumer products to guarantee transparent, efficient and reliable workflows. A robust localization solution, which will be available continuously is needed regardless outdoor or indoor, and on different platforms. ICL-GNSS addresses the latest research on wireless and satellite-based positioning techniques to provide reliable and accurate position information with low latency. The emphasis is on the design of mass-market navigation receivers and related tools and methodologies, but also many kinds of sensing devices, wireless systems with localization capabilities, and location-aware applications are within the scope of ICL-GNSS.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
− Antennas and RF front-end for GNSS receivers
− Design, prototyping and testing of positioning devices
− Acquisition, tracking and navigation algorithms
− Detection and mitigation techniques for adverse propagation conditions
− Wireless and sensor-based localization
− GNSS applications for remote sensing, ionospheric sounding and space weather
− Precise timing for GNSS and terrestrial systems
− Spoofing and jamming countermeasures
− Cooperative and peer-to-peer positioning
− Positioning based on signals-of-opportunity
− Multi-GNSS receivers and emerging navigation satellite systems
− Indoor positioning and localization in densely populated urban areas
− Hybrid NAV/COM positioning Cognitive positioning architectures
− Positioning for autonomous systems (robots, planes, land and marine vehicles)
− Authentication, security and/or privacy in navigation systems and location-aware communication
− Radar and radio-based sensing
− Device-free localization
− 5G Positioning
− Context awareness
Paper submission: Submitted papers must represent original material that is not currently under review in any other conference or journal, and has not been previously published. Papers should be four to six pages long in the specified format. Papers should be submitted as pdf files prepared according to IEEE two-column A4 format guidelines. We invite you to submit your original full papers on the most recent results and technology trends in the fields of positioning. Accepted and presented papers will be published in electronic conference proceedings.
Traditionally, ICL-GNSS papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore for inclusion in the database and indexing. A virtual special issue in MDPI Sensors open-access journal will be edited after the conference based on extended top-tier papers from the conference.
In ICL-GNSS 2020 we also have another track for industry/work-in-progress papers. The papers accepted on this track will be submitted to the CEUR-WS.org, an open-access repository indexed by Scopus, Ei Compendex and DBLP. For that proceedings, 5-page LNCS format will be used. All papers submitted to the conference will undergo a similar peer review.
