"Next-Gen Precise Positioning and Seamless Navigation: From Classical Signal Processing to AI"
Special Session Co-Chairs
Geoloc Laboratory,
University Gustave Eiffel, France
Department of Computer Science,
Universitat de València, Av. Universitat, Valencia, Spain.
School of Mobile Computing & Communication,
Salt Lake Campus, Jadavpur University, India.
Scope of the Special Session

This special session will explore the applicability of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques and their integration in various sensor data fusion including the newly emerged 5G, 6G network data for precise positioning and seamless navigation systems in satellite-signal denied areas. Traditional signal processing methods are increasingly being supplemented or replaced by AI-driven approaches, offering enhanced accuracy, robustness, and efficiency. Topics will cover state-of-the-art AI algorithms, various machine learning models, and deep learning techniques applied to various sensors and data sources to enable the precise positioning and seamless navigation in complex urban environments.

Topics of the Special Session
  • AI, machine/deep learning for intelligent and seamless positioning
  • Hybridisation of AI and classical signal processing approaches
  • Intelligent sensor fusion or multiple signal sources for enhanced positioning accuracy
  • Accurate and Efficient positioning: compression, clustering, approximate computing
  • Mobility models for seamless positioning and navigation
  • Case studies and real-world implementations:
    Integrated sensing and positioning for autonomous and intelligent vehicles
    Integrated localization and communications for 6G systems
    Intelligent in-home monitoring and e-Health
    Mobility aid for disabled persons
    Navigation solutions for emergency rescue workers

The best 2 papers of this session will be encouraged to submit the extended versions of the papers to the open access journal "IEEE Journal of Indoor and Seamless Positioning and Navigation (J-ISPIN)", and if accepted, the APC will be waived for publication (this is US$ 1995).

"Ocean Observation Systems"
Special Session Co-Chairs
BITS Pilani K K Birla Goa Campus, India
Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, India
(IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society)
CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography, Goa, India
Scope of the Special Session

From the scientific and commercial point of view, a continuous real-time, effective and synoptic sampling of ocean has gained huge importance. Oceanographers and marine scientists wish to explore more of the inner space of the ocean by establishing observatories using modern technologies. Collecting and analysing real time data continuously using new technologies will help researchers to have a better understanding of the ocean properties, life-processes and events. At the same time, analyzing the data of ocean processes will help us to predict the future climate changes and its impact on human life. Ocean observation system has many areas such as underwater communication, networking, IoT, robotics, Swarm of AUVs etc.

Considering the importance of oceans on the life on the Earth, the UN has already taken steps to declare the decade during 2021-2030 as Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. Developments in ocean science and technology can support and fuel the marine and allied industries that will boost the Blue Economy in the days to come.

Topics of the Special Session
  1. Sensors and Systems for oceanographic data collection,
  2. Commercial, scientific and defence applications of ocean observation systems,
  3. Underwater communication and sensor networks,
  4. Underwater swarm robotics,
  5. Underwater vehicles for ocean applications,
  6. Underwater IoT,
  7. AI for underwater exploration
