Jun 21 - 23, 2021 Fraunhofer-Forum, Berlin, Germany
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.

ION complimentary webinar
Join the ION on Monday, June 28 at 11:00 a.m. EDT for a complimentary webinar featuring Factor Graph Optimization for GNSS/INS Integration: A Comparison with the Extended Kalman Filter by Weisong Wen, Tim Pfeifer, Xiwei Bai and Li-Ta Hsu.
Factor Graph Optimization for GNSS/INS Integration: A Comparison with the Extended Kalman Filter was published in the Summer 2021 issue of NAVIGATION, Journal of the Institute of Navigation, Volume 68, No. 2, pp. 315-331.
Factor graph optimization (FGO) recently has attracted attention as an alternative to the extended Kalman filter (EKF) for GNSS-INS integration.
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.

ION Joint Navigation Conference - Enhancing Dominance and Resilience for Warfighting and Homeland Security PNT
JNC is the largest U.S. military Positioning, Navigation and Timing (PNT) conference of the year with joint service and government participation. The event focuses on technical advances in PNT with emphasis on joint development, test and support of affordable PNT systems, logistics and integration. From an operational perspective the conference will focus on advances in battlefield applications of GPS; critical strengths and weaknesses of field navigation devices; warfighter PNT requirements and solutions; and navigation warfare.
FEDCON U.S. only conference attendance (August 24-26), held at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center, will be screened by the Joint Navigation Warfare Center and will be restricted to US only. The classified session, held at AFIT, will have US only Secret Clearance access (August 27). The exhibit hall (August 25-26) will be open to all conference participants, exhibiting organizations, their employees and related organizations. All materials displayed in the exhibit hall shall be publicly releasable (Publicly Releasable AFTER Review).
Sep 20 - 24, 2021 St. Louis Union Station Hotel, St. Louis, Missouri, USA
ION GNSS+ is the world's largest technical meeting and showcase of GNSS technology, products and services. This year's conference will bring together international leaders in GNSS and related positioning, navigation and timing fields to present new research, introduce new technologies, discuss current policy, demonstrate products and exchange ideas.
Unable to attend in person?
ION GNSS+ 2021 will include a virtual option for those who are unable to travel. Virtual Registration offers access to all on-demand conference content, live streams of select sessions, proceedings, as well as recordings of the sessions that were live streamed during the conference.
