There will be an International IEEE Workshop on Asia-Pacific satellite navigation and positioning held in Brisbane in Feb/Mar.

Increasing global fuel costs pressure resource, agricultural, and transport industries to achieve better energy efficiencies and reduce carbon emissions. Navigation, positioning, and automation technologies can provide these desired the efficiency gains. In the past however, satellite navigation equipment has exhibited poor performance within canyons, alongside buildings, hills, foliage and other obstructions. The recent deployment of Beidou navigation satellites and accompanying technology has led to unprecedented improvements in accuracy and availability.

The objective of the workshop is to foster collaborative linkages between industry users, service providers and Beidou R&D teams. It will focus on the following:

  • Update on the state‐of‐the‐art
  • Accessing technology
  • Emerging applications
  • Typical performance
  • Industries’ requirements
  • Future developments

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 & transport requirements
  • GNSS products & services
  • Augmentation technologies
  • Automation & robotics applications.

This is an opportunity for industry users to interact with researchers and guide future developments.

The workshop will be held on 27 Feb– 1 Mar 2014 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.

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

Important dates:

50‐word abstract emailed to by 30 Jan 2014.

Registration of interest to attend emailed to by 30 Jan 2014.

Decisions notifications by 31 Feb 2014.
