EToL 2019: Expert Talk on Localization 2019 - Lübeck, Germany, July 11-12, 2019
We announce the 4th Expert Talk on Localization of GI/ITG specialist group Communication and Distributed Systems. The objective of this Expert Talk is intense discussions among researchers from academia and industry in this challenging area.
Localization is a major technology in the field of medical, industrial and logistics applications. The Expert Talk offers researchers a platform to discuss recent results of their work and share opinions with each other. They are invited to discuss current issues and upcoming challenges. The Expert Talk on Localization features a demo and poster session. The demo session is dedicated to the presentation of practical results, e.g., localization systems, sensors, applications, and other contributions.
We invite contributions (abstracts, demos) of topics on localization, positioning, and related concepts.

We plan a demo, and technical exhibition session and panel discussions. Please contact us if you are interested in presenting a demonstrator in addition to submitting an abstract.
Authors are requested to submit abstracts limited up to three pages in a two-column IEEE conference format. Abstracts must present original research. Late-breaking advances and work-in-progress reports from ongoing research are appreciated. We also encourage you to submit failed ideas as it might spawn interesting discussions. Please submit your abstract via EasyChair until 16.06.2019.
Authors of accepted submissions are expected to present during the event.
Please submit your papers via Easychair https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=etol2019.
