The Institute of Navigation premier conference, ION GNSS+ 2020, held annually in September, will this year have a virtual option for attendance. It will mirror the technical program presented live, September 21-25 in St. Louis, Missouri, and will give global attendees access to the latest GNSS developments and content. Virtual meeting attendance will be free for all first-time ION GNSS+ attendees.
Two session tracks will be live streamed, including the keynote plenary session; all panel sessions, including the Status of the Systems Update panel; and a mix of other sessions from various technical tracks. Virtual attendees will be invited to participate in a moderated Q&A. Sessions that will be live streamed have been notated on the online program.
All technical sessions will be audio-recorded live in St. Louis, Missouri and uploaded with slides to the ION GNSS+ 2020 virtual conference site. Virtual attendees will have the option of viewing all technical presentations on demand and on their own schedule.
The virtual conference option does not include the pre-conference tutorials or pre-conference short courses. Virtual attendees will receive the official ION GNSS+ 2020 Conference Proceedings.
ION will provide an expanded online exhibitor profile that will allow exhibitors to upload a complete company profile with sales and contact information, upload their company logo and company brochures, and will include a link that allows attendees to email an exhibitor directly to ask questions or set up a phone or virtual appointment. In addition, exhibitors can record and post a link to their own exhibitor demonstration in their profile.
For organizations or individuals that require financial assistance to participate in ION GNSS+ 2020, ION offers a COVID-19 Economic Impact Discount for the virtual option. This discount is being made possible through the ION reserve fund, established to provide financial stability for ION’s programs in unusual circumstances.
