Call For Papers

We invite you to submit your original full papers on the most recent results and technology trends in the fields of positioning. 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-related projects.

Call For Special Sessions

ICL-GNSS will host a number of special sessions this year. Each special session will consist of 4-6 presentations to be fit within a single time slot of 1h 30min. At the time of submitting the special session proposal, the session organizer is just required to send the list of presentation titles and the list of authors.

    Once the special session is notified to be accepted, the session organizer can decide whether presentations will have an associated paper or not:
  • - If presentations have associated papers, they will undergo a review process;
  • - By default, a light review process will be carried out for special session papers, just to ensure that the paper format is compliant with the conference requirements, and that the contents are relevant to the conference. In case these papers are accepted, they will be published in the conference proceedings, but not in IEEE Xplore;
  • - Alternatively, the session organizer may decide to have special session papers published in IEEE Xplore. In that case, and upon acceptance of the special session, special session papers will be required to be submitted as a regular paper, and thus undergo the regular review process. In case these papers are accepted, they will be published in the IEEE Xplore;
  • - If presentations have no associated papers, the session organizer will only need to submit the presentation abstracts upon acceptance of the special session.

Contents of special session proposals

  • 1. Special session title;
  • 2. Organizer(s) of the session: name, affiliation, email;
  • 3. List of proposed presentations including title and authors/speakers;

This information must be sent to iclgnss{at}tut.fi no later than February 20, 2017.

The list of accepted special session will be announced on February 27, 2017. Papers from special sessions will follow the same template and format of regular papers (see resources for authors).

Resources for Authors

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 have a nominal length of four to six pages in two-column format, A4 paper size, following the IEEE guidelines.

The final camera-ready version of accepted papers will have to go through a conformity check by the IEEE PDF Xpress to comply with the IEEE PDF requirements.
