A Conference Organising Committee comprising The Royal Institute of Navigation, London, the Institute of Engineering Surveying and Space Geodesy, University of Nottingham, (UK), and the Faculty of Maritime Studies, University of Rijeka, Croatia have extended an invitation to the 6th GNSS Vulnerabilities and Solutions 2012 Conference to be held from 21st to 24th May, 2012 in Baška, Krk Island, Croatia.
This traditional and unique worldwide event aims to gather GNSS experts and focuses on GNSS problems and vulnerabilities, as well as developments aiming to improve the accuracy and reliability of GNSS. The unique environment of Baška and its natural resources and rich history, combined with friendly hospitality will again create an inspiring atmosphere for ideas and knowledge exchange, well known to those who attended the previous conferences.
The European Navigation Conference, which is going to be organized in 2012, will be the most important European event of this kind in 2012, a great chance to meet a lot of eminent people who work in the field of navigation.
The conference will also be a wonderful occasion to exchange information about the latest developments in navigation and positioning systems, navigation techniques and their applications. New technologies and latest proposals of technical, research and industrial companies, related to all kinds of human activities connected with navigation, will be presented during the conference.
Following a successful meeting in 2010, the National Maritime Museum and the Royal Institute of Navigation are planning a second symposium to bring together current research in the history of navigation.
The symposium will explore the wider impact of the ‘discovery’ of longitude and the ways in which navigation has evolved since then. In particular it will aim to investigate the connections between navigational advances and the development of exploration, surveying, commerce and empire from the 19th century to today.
Proposals for papers on these and related themes are now being sought
