Many services, such as personal navigation, search and rescue, robot and fleet management, and healthcare would greatly benefit from ubiquitous, accurate, robust, and seamless positioning technologies. While mature GNSS solutions exist for outdoor spaces, more than ten years of research and development of sensing technologies have not yet led to a widely available offer of generic and affordable standard solutions for indoors. Nonetheless, year after year the insight that researchers have offered into indoor localization provides us with more methods and the array of usable sensors widens with technological progress. Hybridization of sensor data, smart capture of environmental data, and benchmarking of sensing and positioning technologies are all at the heart of indoor positioning and indoor navigation innovations.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
This workshop is devoted to the presentation of innovations and improvements in the field of advanced sensors and sensing technologies for indoor positioning and navigation including theory, design, modelling, configuration, characterization, sensor data processing, data analysis, and applications. Original research contributions and review papers are sought in areas including:
- Sensors and sensing technologies for indoor navigation and tracking methods: AoA, TOF, TDOA-based localisation, RSSI and magnetic fingerprinting, PDR, IMU and hybrid systems, UWB, ultrasound, optical systems, RFID, radar, device-free systems, mapping, SLAM
- Sensing frameworks and fusion for hybrid positioning
- Sensors for human motion monitoring and modeling
- Sensors for seamless systems: HS-GNSS, indoor GNSS, pseudolites, RTK GNSS with handheld devices, mitigating GNSS error when switching to indoor, industrial metrology & geodetic systems, iGPS
- Wearable and multi-sensor systems for indoor navigation and human motion
- Sensors benchmarking, assessment, evaluation, standards

Papers should be submitted through EAl’Confy+’system, and have to comply with the Springer format(see Author’s kit section).
- Regular papers should be up to 12-15+ pages in length.
- Short papers should be 6-11 pages in length.
All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAl Community Review which allows EAl members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection. You can learn more about Community Review here.
