ISGNSS 2014 and KGS Conference
October 21 - 24
The International Symposium on GNSS 2014 (ISGNSS 2014) will be held October 21-24, 2014, at Jeju Island, Korea, in conjunction with the Korea GNSS Society (KGS) Conference.
Papers are now being accepted.
ISGNSS was initiated in 1999 for providing an interoperable field of discussion among GNSS communities from all over the world. The KGS conference (previously known as the GNSS Workshop) has been held since 1994, when Korea’s GPS Technology Council (now GNSS) was established.
Recently, Asian countries have become to play an important role in GNSS. Especially, in 2013, China has completed the first phase deployment of Beidou, Japan has performed multi-GNSS campaigns using QZSS, and Korea announced the deployment plans of SBAS. Continuing contributions from Asian countries to GNSS fields will promote more active communications and collaborations among GNSS communities, according to event organizers.
With multi-GNSS is coming, the importance of GNSS as the key PNT technology is widely recognized in every application area. In addition, other technologies for PNT mature, so the concept of the Cloud PNT is expected to appear. Because of this, “Cloud-PNT: PNT in IoT” is the theme of ISGNSS 2014.
The program will be organized to emphasize this trend. The Jeju Island, the venue of ISGNSS, was designated Biosphere Reserve in 2002, World Natural Heritage in 2007, and Global Geopark in 2010, making the sub-tropical island the only place to receive all three UNESCO designations in natural sciences.
