The 2nd GNSS Vulnerabilities and Solutions

This event is being organised by the Royal Institute of Navigation, London, and the Institute of Engineering Surveying and Space Geodesy, University of Nottingham and the invitation comes from Dr Renato Filjar, FRIN, of the Croatian Branch of the Royal Institute of Navigation (Telephone: +385 91 488 2222).
Over four days this event aims to gather GNSS experts and focus on GNSS
problems and vulnerabilities, as well as developments aiming to improve the
accuracy and reliability of GNSS. The unique environment of Baska 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 last year’s conference.
Two special sessions will be organised in order to address particular causes
of GNSS vulnerabilities: Space Weather and Ionospheric Effects on GNSS, and
Safety Critical Applications (concerning primarily ITS). The remainder of the
conference will address other causes of GNSS vulnerabilities and means of
overcoming them such as:
• core GNSS system vulnerabilities
• GNSS augmentation system vulnerabilities
• GNSS interference and management
• tropospheric impact on GNSS
• multipath management
• navigation algorithms
• design of user equipment
• system integration issues related to vulnerability
• user experience – applications

Extended abstracts should be submitted to Dr Renato Filjar, FRIN, by e-mail, (no later than 1st May, 2009). For further details
please visit the relevant event page of the RIN Web site:
A special arrangement has already been prepared for conference participants,
that includes discounted accommodation price and attendance at numerous
social events, held at the time considered to be high season on the Northern
Adriatic. More details can be found in the Call for Papers. With improved
air services from London and other European cities to Krk Island
(, the organisers expect the conference to be both an important and enjoyable event.
