Technical co-sponsor IEEE

The tenth edition of the International conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation and the sixth IPIN Competition are taking place in Pisa, Italy. Launched in 2010 in Zurich, Switzerland, IPIN is a unique event entirely dedicated to indoor localisation, its applications and its development.

Join the 400 expected industrial and academic experts in informatics, electronics and surveying to address this challenge. Discuss in person scientific and industrial matters, witness state-of-the-art systems and methods, participate in the uniquely challenging IPIN competition and enjoy the ancient town of Pisa and beautiful Tuscany.

IPIN solicits submission of high quality technical papers reporting original work not previously published, nor currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Papers are submitted as one of two types. Regular paper: limited to 8 IEEE format pages, for oral presentation. Work-in-Progress (WiP) paper: from 5 to 8 LNCS format pages, for poster or oral presentation

Paper submission instructions are found at Papers undergo peer reviewing and, once accepted, are included in the conference proceedings by submitting WiP papers to CEUR-WS and regular papers to IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Topics of interest include:

  • User requirements
  • UI, indoor maps and 3D building models
  • Human motion monitoring and modelling
  • Robotics and UAV
