Sessions and sub-sessions of particular interest to Inside GNSS readers:

4.1 Technology and Land Applications
Advances in applications of GNSS, inertial and integrated multi-sensor systems to navigation, positioning, orientation and guidance in land and air, indoor and pedestrian navigation, navigation in GNSS-denied environments and more.

4.2 Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere
On-board GNSS receivers on dedicated satellites explore the atmosphere-induced bending of GNSS signals while propagating through the atmosphere, to furnish round-the-clock weather data, monitor climate change, and improve space weather forecasts. 

4.3 Multi-satellite Ocean Remote Sensing
Synthesizing data from GPS, SAR, GRACE, Laser and Radar Altimetry

Session 5 Geodesy in Latin America
The Geoid and Gravity Project: GNSS continuous reference stations

6.1 Navigation (FIG, ION)
Theory, observation techniques, applications and performance of GNSS and other sensors in positioning, navigation, guidance and autonomous vehicle navigation. CORS networks. Multi-sensor integration. Machine learning algorithms applied to navigation. Navigation in confined environments. Map technologies that improve navigation accuracy or reliability. Autonomous mapping. Collaborative navigation.
