Indoor localization, tracking, and navigation have been gaining
relevance due to steadily expanding range of enabling devices
and technologies, as well as the necessity for seamless solutions
for location-based services. A current trend in the design of
solutions for indoor localization, tracking and navigation is to
use standard, low-cost, and already deployed technologies.
These technologies are highly heterogeneous, encompassing, to
name a few examples, inertial measurement units, sonar, laser,
IR, visual light communications, or radiofrequency signals. Radio
signals typically include WiFi, UWB, RFID, Bluetooth, NFC,
3GPP/LTE, 802.11x, digital TV, or, in general, so-called available
signals of opportunity. All this entails that the latest challenge in
indoor localization, tracking, and navigation is not only to design
specialized sensors for these tasks but to design and implement
methods exploiting the cooperation of the already available
technologies. Therefore, data fusion in indoor localization,
tracking, and navigation is a key element for further advances of
the field and presents exciting challenges for signal processing
practitioners and researchers.

The goal of the workshop is to solicit the development of new
positioning algorithms based on short-range wireless
communications as well as new position-aware procedures to
enhance the efficiency of communication networks.
This workshop will bring together academic and industrial
researchers to identify and discuss technical challenges and
recent results related to short-range positioning.
This workshop is organized in part by the EU Network of
Excellence NEWCOM#, the EU COST Action 1004 (Cooperative
Radio Communications for Green Smart Environments), the
Italian National Project GRETA, and the Austrian Research
Network SISE.
Please submit contributions through EDAS
All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of 6 printed pages (minimum 10-point font) including figures,
without incurring additional page charges. One additional page is allowed with a charge of USD100, if accepted. Papers exceeding 7 pages
will not be accepted at EDAS, nor will they be reviewed at all. Authors should use the relevant IEEE template, ensuring IEEE Explore
compatible PDF-format. Papers will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore/IEEE Digital Library in IEEEXplore under “IEEE Intern.
Conference on Communications Workshops”. Please note that at ICC2015 authors will be required to present their papers in person to
qualify for publication of their papers in IEEEXplore.
