ICL-GNSS 2011: Localization and GNSS Conference - Inside GNSS

ICL-GNSS 2011: Localization and GNSS Conference

The 2011 International Conference on Localisation and GNSS will take place on June 29 and 30 in the city of Tampere, Finland at Tampere Hall, the largest conference and concert center in Scandanavia. 

ICL-GNSS 2011 will address the latest research on satellite-based positioning techniques to provide reliable and accurate position information with low latency. The emphasis is on the design of mass-market and professional GNSS receivers and related tools and methodologies.

The 2011 International Conference on Localisation and GNSS will take place on June 29 and 30 in the city of Tampere, Finland at Tampere Hall, the largest conference and concert center in Scandanavia. 

ICL-GNSS 2011 will address the latest research on satellite-based positioning techniques to provide reliable and accurate position information with low latency. The emphasis is on the design of mass-market and professional GNSS receivers and related tools and methodologies.

Topics include:

•     Issues in navigation satellite systems (GPS, Galileo, Compass, Glonass)
•     Antennas and RF front-ends for GNSS receivers
•     Baseband hardware and software implementations (tracking, acquisition, …)
•     Multi-system (communication/navigation and multiple GNSS) receivers
•     Satellite navigation system and receiver simulators
•     Verification and testing of positioning devices
•     Test platforms for location-based services
•     Location methods for indoor and densely populated urban areas
•     Assisted and hybrid (INS, wireless networks and others) positioning
•     Exploitation of augmentation systems (WAAS, EGNOS and others )
•     RAIM, FDE, and dependability of positioning solutions
•     PVT computation algorithms
•     Design of cognitive positioning architectures and algorithms
•     Cooperative location strategies
•     Run-time calibration of positioning devices
•     Evaluation and benchmarking of positioning receivers and algorithms
•     Technology supporting location-based services

The conference is organized by U.S. and European  professionals and is co-sponsored by IEEE.

Tampere is situated in the heart of thel Finnish Lakeland. The banks of the Tammerkoski rapids still feature old traditional industrial buildings that have been converted to restaurants, pubs or high-tech companies. Tampere is also a city of theatres, arts, sciences, sport and modern industrial culture.
