International IEEE will hold a workshop on Asia-Pacific Satellite Navigation and Positioning in Brisbane, Australia from Feb. 27 to March 1, 2014. The objective of the workshop is to foster collaborative linkages between industry users, service providers and Beidou R&D teams.

Among the focus areas is the increasing global fuel costs that pressure resource, agricultural and transport industries to achieve better energy efficiencies and reduce carbon emissions. Navigation, positioning, and automation technologies can provide the desired efficiency gains.

 

IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society Qld invites industry users, equipment and service providers, researchers and developers to submit abstracts of proposed presentations on relevant subjects including: Status and technology readiness; Port & shipping, agriculture, mining and  transport requirements; GNSS products & services; Augmentation technologies; automation and robotics applications.

This is an opportunity for industry users to interact with researchers and guide future developments. The workshop will be held at the CSIRO Centre for Advanced Technologies, Pullenvale, which is located 12 km (approximately 30 minute drive) from the Brisbane central business district. Registration is free. On‐site parking is available. The number of participants will be limited as the workshop will be catered.

For those interested in presenting, send a 50-word abstract to y.feng@qut.edu by Jan. 30, 2014.

Full papers will be solicited from speakers after the workshop for submission, review and publication in the Journal of Global Positioning Systems.
