Strategic insight and debate on the opportunities and challenges facing the UK rail sector.
Potential delegates have been invited to submit abstracts for ION GNSS+ 2016, the 29th International Technical Meeting of the Satellite Division of the (US) Institute of Navigation.
ION GNSS+ 2016 is the world’s largest technical meeting and showcase of GNSS technology, products and services, and brings together international leaders in GNSS and related positioning, navigation and timing fields to present new research, introduce new technologies, to update current policy and to demonstrate products and exchange ideas.
ION GNSS+ 2016 features two different tracks, each with different abstract and manuscript submission requirements. Submission requirements have changed and are dependent on the track for which they have been submitted. Authors with abstracts accepted in the Research and Innovations Track will have the option to have their paper peer-reviewed. Abstracts must be received by Thursday, 10 March, 2016.
Examining salvor survival strategies, the future of LOF and upcoming challenges for the industry.
1400-1730: Cyber Risk & Safety Forum
The highly focused Cyber Challenge Forum will look at how the industry is reacting to the advent of increased cyber threats borne out of the growing use of cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) applications, the number of devices used, and larger ships but fewer crew – creating even more reliance on automation and remote monitoring.
SMM The leading international maritime trade fair.
“Integrated Ship’s Information Systems” are recognized to be effective means in order to enhance safety and efficiency of the maritime traffic system.
Focus of the conference is on approaches and solutions ensuring the proper provision and utilization of such information. In this context of practical experiences, using new information systems will also be discussed taking into account the role and the needs of humans in an environment with increasing load of information. In addition the conference will also provide up-to-date information about ongoing activities, project results and applications related to information systems and their harmonization within the e-navigation period aged 12 years. Furthermore ISIS is also an excellent platform to present advanced approaches for GREEN NAVIGATION and UNMANNED SHIPS as well as for further future concepts.
Organised by the German Institute of Navigation (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ortung und Navigation e.V. (DGON)) in cooperation with the Maritime University of Szczecin and the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
This event with the theme Sustainable Safe Navigation will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from 8 – 12 August 2016 and attended by those involved in the provision, operation, maintenance or use of Vessel Traffic Services.
Sponsored jointly by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, the Institute for Telecommunication Sciences and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Communications Technology Laboratory, ISART’s theme this year will be spectrum forensics, i.e. spectrum measurements that support interference monitoring, investigation, and enforcement.
The 14th session of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD 14) will take place in Nairobi, Kenya, from 17 to 22 July 2016.

This conference will present experiences, opportunities and challenges of MSP implementation around the world. In particular it will look at how MSP can advance Blue Growth world-wide, its potential to promote climate change solutions, as well as at the role of area-based management regimes in international waters.
The main purpose is to take stock of what is being carried out at international level and identify potential synergies as well as possible contributions from European MSP processes.
In June 2016 the CIEHF and the University of Nottingham will be running the second Human Factors in Complex Systems conference at Nottingham. It will be held at the same venue as the successful, initial event last year, which honoured the life and work of Professor John R Wilson in the field of ergonomics and human factors.
The conference will bring together academics and practitioners working in diverse areas such as transport, healthcare, manufacturing and defence.
The future of timekeeping is changing with the development of optical frequency standards and the resulting challenges of distributing time at ever higher precision, with the possibility of timescales based on pulsars, and with the inclusion of higher-order relativistic effects. The definition of the second will likely be changed before the end of this decade, and its realization will increase in accuracy; the definition of the day is no longer obvious.
We propose a symposium setting the stage for future timekeeping standards, infrastructure, and engineering best practices for astronomers and the broader society.
Hosted by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CFA) in Cambridge, MA (USA). The CFA is a collaboration of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) and the Harvard College Observatory (HCO).
The 13th edition of ESPO’s annual conference will take place in Ireland on 2 and 3 June 2016.
The response at Resilient PNT Forim IV has been very positive and it is proposed to consider holding another Forum during ENC 2016 in Helsinki which will be staged from 30 May to 2 June, see www.enc2016.eu.
[Note that the dates given are the ENC dates, as RPNTF-V is in a planning stage. Ed.]
In this edition of ENC the focus will be on innovations in positioning, navigation and timing technologies and applications at land, sea and air. Topic areas include GNSS positioning, indoor and urban navigation and position based applications. Furthermore, it promises to be a unique networking event for all participants from academia, the public sector and industry.
The fourth of a serious of European Space Solutions.
ESS will bring together business and policy makers with users and developers of space-based solutions. Here will be an opportunity for delegates to learn about innovations that harness information from the European flagship space programmes: Galileo, EGNOS and Copernicus (Earth observation), and the EU’s Horizon 2020 research programme.
The biennial IHMA Congress provides a unique forum in which formal Association meetings are combined with a conference offering a range of professional papers on subjects of topical importance to Harbour Masters and an industry exhibition displaying equipment, services and technical developments from throughout the port and harbour sector.
Now the eighth in a series, Geospatial World Forum has proved popular with professionals engaged in the geospatial sector and its application domain. It is said to be a premium global platform for the geospatial community offering opportunities for learning, sharing, branding and networking with senior decision makers within the geospatial world. According to material received this conference aims to provide market intelligence, technology trends, success stories and capacity building.
Note: deadline for registration: 29 January 2016.
16 May 2016 from 0900 to 1600. Think Tank Session: AIS data visualisation for Big Data Maritime Location Based Services.
