Call for papers

Reliable navigation and positioning are becoming imperative in more and more applications for safety-critical purposes, public services and consumer products. A robust localization solution, which will be available continuously, is needed regardless of the specific environment, i.e., outdoors and indoors, and on different platforms such as stand-alone navigators and mobile devices. 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.

The scope includes (but is not limited to) the following topics:

Call For Special Sessions

ICL-GNSS will host a number of special sessions. 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 no later than February 20, 2018.
The list of accepted special session will be announced on February 27, 2018. Papers from special sessions will follow the same template and format of regular papers.
