IEEE/Institute of Navigation Position Location and Navigation Symposium (PLANS) 2014 Call for Abstracts

Instructions on submitting your abstract can be found at: www.plansconference.org.

PLANS 2014 is the fifth biennial conference co-sponsored by the IEEE, AESS and the ION. The conference features researchers and engineers from around the globe who present their latest work in positioning and navigation technologies. Presentations range from fundamental research, to applications, to field test results with a particular emphasis on inertial navigation. Technical sessions cover a range of subjects for both beginners and seasoned professionals.

IEEE/ION PLANS 2014 technical program will be centered around four technical tracks including:
Inertial Sensing and Technology, GNSS Technologies and Systems, Integrated Applications of Sensors and Technology and Systems Technology.

Technical papers will be presented on current position, location and navigation issues:

  • High-Performance Inertial Sensor Technologies
  • Low-Cost Inertial Sensor Technologies
  • Multisensor Integrated Systems and Sensor Fusion Technologies
  • Sensor Manufacturing, Error Modeling & Testing
  • Emerging Atom-Based Sensor Technologies
  • Micro-technology for PNT
  • Receiver and Antenna Technology
