The 7th Annual GNSS Vulnerabilities and Solutions Conference will be held in Baska, Krk Island, Croatia, 18 - 20 April. A traditional and unique GNSS event in the world is organised by The Royal Institute of Navigation (London, UK) and Faculty of Maritime Studies (University of Rijeka, Croatia), addressing the most important issues of risk assessment and mitigation methods for various GNSS vulnerabilities, including the effects of space weather and the ionosphere, and their effects on performance and operation of GNSS systems and GNSS applications. Traditionally, the conference starts with the plenary session where the top officials of existing (GPS, GLONASS) and forthcoming (Galileo, Bediou) satellite navigation systems present the recent developments. Presented papers will be peer-reviewed and published in the paper conference proceedings, referenced in respectable scientific databases. More details on this conference can be found in the attached Call for Papers, including the topics, and accommodation, travelling and registration details. A modest conference fee applies. You are kindly advised to register your participation with Ms Sally-Anne Cooke, Conference Manager with The Royal Institute of Navigation, London, UK.
