European Navigation Conference (ENC 2023)
The main theme of the conference is Resilient Navigation. Vulnerability of satellite-based position and timing information is widely recognized. The need for resilience requires redundancy in the signal domain, terrestrial and space infrastructures and on-board implementation. It also requires vulnerabilities to be addressed in navigation functions, data, guidance and control.

Israel Navigation Workshop & Exhibition 2022
INWE is a biennial event organized and sponsored by the Israel Association for Automatic Control (IAAC).
Following the huge success of previous events, IAAC is now starting to organise the 2022 edition, scheduled for 31 January next, at the Daniel Hotel, Herzliya, Israel. This workshop is a one day event dedicated to technical talks that range from fundamental research, to applications, to field test results.
Topics of interest include positioning, navigation, and timing in all their variations, sensors, systems, optimal integration of multiple sensors, and novel or emerging technologies in the field of navigation.
Schwerpunkte der Tagung waren Technologien für Ortung, Navigation und Kommunikation und die sich daraus ergebenden Anwendungen, die im alpinen Gelände eingesetzt werden können, aber auch Lösungen und Technologien, die in den Alpenländern entwickelt wurden oder dort zum Einsatz kommen.
Die Tagung zielte darauf ab, Bedarfsträger, Nutzer, Forscher und Entwickler zum Erfahrungsaustausch zusammenzubringen. Sowohl wissenschaftliche Beiträge als auch die Vorstellung praktischer Anwendungsbereiche der Navigation und Positionierung wurden präsentiert. Neben der Navigation kamen auch Kommunikation, Geoinformation und Erdbeobachtung zur Sprache.
Navigation 2021 will bring together experts from industry, research institutions, government agencies and investors whose primary goal is to work together for a more navigable world.
In November 2021, Navigation 2021 will unite two established conferences. The International Navigation Conference (INC) and the European Navigation Conference (ENC) will come together as one truly global showcase.
Navigation 2021 will take place as a virtual conference. We will review the situation in 2021 and if possible run an in-person element to complement the conference.

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.
Webinar – Maintaining competency and training during recovery
Restricted access to training facilities combined with possible spikes in traffic levels, and the replacement of ICAO’s COVID-19 Contingency Related Differences (CCRD) by a Targeted Exemptions System from 1 April give rise to many challenges related to training operational staff.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, airlines and ANSPs have been working to address challenges related to training, and drive solutions to ensure competency of operational personnel. Join us for the second episode to gain insights from industry experts on the respective measures airlines and ANSPs are taking as well as best practices that can be implemented during the recovery phase.

43d COSPAR Scientific Assembly
In light of the advice from the Australian Federal Government and with the current travel bans and need to safeguard our space research community at large, COSPAR 2021 will continue as planned, but with the addition of a major on-line component enabling the Assembly to become a hybrid in-person / virtual event.
The very extensive and indeed excellent program that our Scientific Program Committee assembled for COSPAR-2020 will be carried over to the new dates, along with the line-up of inspirational international and national speakers, the interdisciplinary workshops, as well as immersive social opportunities.
We are developing an approach that guarantees that every Interdisciplinary Speaker, oral presentation, poster presentation and workshop will occur at least once in a time zone friendly to attendees. Presentations will be a mix of in-person presentations from Sydney, live streaming and pre-recorded sessions.
