Reliable navigation and positioning are becoming imperative in more and more applications for safety-critical purposes, public services and consumer products. A robust and continuously available localization solution is needed regardless of the specific environment or specific platform.

ICL-GNSS addresses the latest research on terrestrial and satellite-based positioning techniques to provide reliable, accurate and low latency position information. It aims at inspiring the development of new design, implementation, test and evaluation methodologies for positioning platforms. The conference will comprise technical sessions, poster sessions, invited keynotes and a best paper award. The conference strongly emphasizes a quick turn-around time and high quality of the published papers.

We encourage prospective authors to submit original contributions in, but not limited to, the following topics:

    Hardware and testing aspects:
  • - Antennas and RF front-end for GNSS receivers;
  • - Design, prototyping and testing of positioning devices.

  • Signal processing algorithms:
  • - Acquisition, tracking and navigation algorithms;
  • - Detection and mitigation techniques for adverse propagation conditions;
  • - Wireless and sensor-based localization.

  • Scientific applications:
  • - GNSS applications for remote sensing, iono sounding and space weather;
  • - Precise timing reference.

  • Security aspects:
  • - Authentication and privacy aspects of positioning;
  • - Spoofing countermeasures.

  • Emerging technologies:
  • - Cooperative and peer-to-peer positioning;
  • - Positioning based on signals-of-opportunity;
  • - Multi-GNSS receivers and emerging navigation satellite systems;
  • - Hybrid NAV/COM positioning;
  • - Cognitive positioning architectures;
  • - Positioning for autonomous systems.

    Commercial applications:
  • - Location-based mobility models, services and applications.


  • Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. We also invite proposals for special sessions from positioning or GNSS-related projects.

Sponsoring ICL-GNSS

The International Conference on Localization and GNSS (ICL-GNSS) is the annual event bringing together world-class keynote speakers, industry representatives, researchers and PhD students in the field of localization, navigation and positioning technologies. The 2016 event will be organized by Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and it provides an excellent opportunity to gather, network, share ideas and foster future collaborations. The consolidated audience is a mixture between industry and academia, with nearly 100 attendees coming from all over the world. We believe this event is an excellent opportunity for your company to have visibility in front of a target audience who will benefit and value from your participation.
