Call for Papers

When: 13 – 16 October 2015

Where: The Banff Centre, Banff, Alberta, Canada

Location information of devices in indoor environments has become a key issue for many emerging applications. However, there is no overall and easy solution. Therefore, IPIN brings together experts in electronics, surveying and informatics. IPIN 2010, organised by ETH Zurich, gathered over 450 participants, from academia and industry, and showed to be the forum of excellence to join researchers, system developers, and service providers in the area of indoor positioning and navigation. With hundreds of participants, both from academia and industry, it proved there is a large and very active community working in indoor positioning and navigation worldwide. Subsequent IPIN conferences confirmed the vitality of this research community, and took place at Guimarães, Portugal (2011), Sydney, Australia (2012), Montbéliard, France (2013), and Busan, Korea (2014). IPIN 2015 will be held in Banff, Alberta, Canada.

The conference encourages the submission of contributions in one or more of the following Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation topics:

  • User Requirements
  • Hybrid IMU Pedestrian Navigation & Foot Mounted Navigation
  • Human Motion Monitoring
  • Health and Wellness Applications
  • High Sensitivity GNSS, Indoor GNSS, Pseudolites
  • RTK GNSS with handheld devices
  • Mitigating GNSS errors prior to moving indoors
  • Self-contained sensors
  • Signal Strength Based Methods, Fingerprinting
  • UWB (Ultra-wideband)
