Data Fusion for Positioning and Navigation


Nowadays, technological advancements have facilitated the manufacturing of compact, inexpensive, and low-power consuming receivers and sensors for smart devices (e.g., GPS, WiFi, MEMS sensors, RFID, UWB, BLE, etc.). The data fusion filter plays an important role in the estimation in positioning and navigation.

All registered workshop papers will be submitted together with EAI ICMTEL 2021 proceedings for publishing by Springer to be made available through Springer Link Digital Library. Papers are solicited on all aspects of research and application, including but not limited to:

  • Multi-sensor data fusion model
  • Applications of filters, smoothers, and predictors in positioning and navigation
  • Performance evaluation and comparison of various fusion algorithms
  • Statistical estimation algorithms for information fusion
  • Model-order reduction techniques for information fusion

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section). Workshop papers should be from 6 to 10 pages with references.

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection. You can learn more about Community Review here.
