14th Baška GNSS Conference
Because of the global Coronavirus situation, the Baška GNSS Conference will not take place in Baška in May 2020. The organising team has decided to hold the event in May 2021. We hope that the event will be able to take place in person, but if not then it will go ahead virtually.
We hope that the extra time will allow authors to take their work further, do more analysis, to write more and better papers for the Baška GNSS Conference when it returns! The Call for Papers remains open and the conference will be back, so please submit your abstracts when you are ready.
On behalf of all at the Royal Institute of Navigation, please be well and be safe and we look forward to updating you later about our next meeting in Baška.
Proceedings of the 2019 Baška Conference are available.

Jun 1 - 3, 2021 Tampere, Finland
International Conference on Localization and GNSS
Reliable navigation and positioning are becoming essential in applications for IoT in industry and logistic applications, in smart city environments, for safety-critical purposes, in public services and consumer products to guarantee transparent, efficient and reliable workflows. A robust localization solution, which will be available continuously is needed regardless outdoor and indoor, and on different platforms. ICL-GNSS addresses the latest research on wireless and satellite-based positioning techniques to provide reliable and accurate position information with low latency. The emphasis is on the design of mass-market navigation receivers and related tools and methodologies, but also many kinds of sensing devices, wireless systems with localization capabilities, and location-aware applications are within the scope of ICL-GNSS.

International Radar Symposium 2021
The German Institute of Navigation (DGON) and the Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques FHR cordially invite you to the International Radar Symposium (IRS) 2021. Following a very successful sequence of Radar Symposia started in Germany 1998, it will now be held in Berlin, Germany.
The International Radar Symposium aims to provide a forum for both academic and industrial professionals in radar from all over the world and to bring together researchers, engineers, experts and students from different organisations to share and discuss both theoretical and practical knowledge.
We invite everybody to submit outstanding and valuable original research papers and participate in the technical exhibition during the conference.
Jul 19 - 30, 2021 Krakow, Poland
ESA/JRC International Summerschool on GNSS 2020
The 13th edition of the ESA/JRC International Summerschool on GNSS 2020 will be held in Krakow, in the South of Poland. This location has become possible through the generous support of the European Space Agency (ESA), the Joint Research Centre (EC) and various supporters.
It is the objective of this Summer School to provide the attendees with a comprehensive overview on satellite navigation, starting from the GNSS system, its signals, the processing of the observations in a receiver and finally determining the position-navigation-time (PNT) solution. Many lab work will be carried out to get attendees really 'hands-on'. In addition, lectures on Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and Patents as well as on business aspects are given. The future of satellite systems is also discussed. Main emphasis will be put on the development of a group project using innovative ideas and covering all aspects from the idea, business plan, technical realisation till the marketing of the product or the service.
