CALL FOR PAPERS: 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Advances in Network Localization and Navigation (ANLN) Organizing Committee Workshop Description Klaus Witrisal (Graz Univ. of Technology) Davide Dardari (Univ. of Bologna) Andrea Conti (Univ. of Ferrara) Bernard H. Fleury (Aalborg University) Alberto Rabbachin (European Commission) 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.

Wymeersch Topics of Interest (include but are not limited to): Advanced data fusion schemes for heterogeneous technologies Cooperative localization and distributed systems Cooperative localization and cloud SLAM Cooperative navigation Multi-agent control Fundamental limits Position-dependent parameters estimation techniques Learning algorithms for environmental mapping Localization via signals-of-opportunity Hybrid IMU and magnetic pedestrian navigation Ultra-wideband technology Passive and active RFID Energy efficient positioning systems Wireless sensor radar Localization methods for the Internet of Things Testbeds and experimentation Important Dates Full paper submissions: Notification of acceptance: Final manuscript: Jan. 20, 2015 Feb. 14, 2015 Feb. 28, 2015 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 http://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=18687 WORKSHOP WEBSITE: http://anln.spsc.tugraz.at/ Contributions 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.
