Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A selection of high quality works presented in the fifth international UPINLBS (Ubiquitous positioning, Indoor Navigation and Location-Based Services) conference will be recommended to the Special Issue of the Journal MDPI Sensors: ‘Selected Papers from UPINLBS 2018 Conference’. The UPINLBS is a unique forum for scientific and technological exchange among global researchers in the field of sensors for indoor/outdoor navigation and positioning. This Conference has a long tradition starting from the year 2010 in Finland and has been held every two years in different cities in the world: Masala, Finland (2010), Helsinki, Finland (2012), Texas, USA (2014), and Shanghai, China (2016). In 2018, the fifth UPINLBS will be held in Wuhan, China (http://unsc.whu.edu.cn/upinlbs/).

This conference concentrate on innovative, state-of-the-art solutions and techniques dealing with ubiquitous positioning, indoor navigation and location-based technologies. In addition, it covers sessions on GNSS based positioning indoors/outdoors, Positioning based on wireless sensor networks, Positioning based on signals of opportunity, Indoor navigation and so much more. Steady progress and the increasing interest in the localization-based services and indoor navigation has contributed to promote the potential of our community in this field, which constitutes one of the most significant and fast developing scientific activities on a worldwide scale.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles, as well as review articles, to this Special Issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • GNSS based positioning indoors/outdoors
  • Positioning based on wireless sensor networks
  • Positioning based on signals of opportunity
  • Positioning based on acoustic signals
  • Positioning based on emerging sensors
  • Hybrid positioning solutions with multiple sensors
  • Indoor navigation
  • Indoor mapping
  • Location-based services indoors/outdoors
  • Mobile sensing with smartphones/wearable devices
  • Geospatial data crowdsourcing
  • Mobile GIS
  • Context inference and awareness

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
