Of global importance, INC 16 will feature the very latest developments in topics such as GNSS, indoor positioning, autonomous transport, security against cyber attack, resilience, and quantum technology.

The conference will include both peer-reviewed and non peer-reviewed tracks, and will cater for academic, industrial and end-user interests. The conference proceedings will be made available online in a digital repository in the weeks following the conference.

Delegate and Stand bookings for the Conference are now open . Click on the links below to book online:

Conference Themes

The Conference programme and speakers are still being developed but INC2016 will feature the hottest topics, including:

New areas of research and development for navigation and positioning, such as biological / animal / human / cognitive navigation, and quantum technologies.

Deploying positioning, sensor and navigation systems in sectors such as autonomy, smart infrastructure, dementia care, disabilities, indoor tracking, agritech etc.

Risks posed by, or to, tracking or sensing systems and platforms. For example: safety of autonomy (including legal aspects), spoofing and jamming legality, abuse of PNT technology, cyber security vulnerabilities, risks to infrastructure and industries, etc.

Following university he joined the then Marconi Research Laboratory (now the BAE Systems Applied Intelligence Laboratory) to work on high-speed digital satellite modems for commercial communications networks. This work evolved into the development of the high performance ground station signal processing systems which are now responsible for providing the data products which are used to navigate deep-space spacecraft. Nick is internationally recognized in the field of high-performance space tracking and communications systems. He was the chief designer of the IFMS system which is currently used as the primary means of communicating with and tracking ESA’s deep-space spacecraft and is now the Lead Engineer for its successor programme, the TTCP. The IFMS and TTCP are Software Defined Radios which are deployed at all European Space Agency (ESA) ground stations and they provide telemetry, telecommand, and radio location services to spacecraft. This equipment is essential to ESA’s spacecraft operations This work led to the presentation of the RAeS Silver Team Award in 2011. He is a member of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, a Chartered Engineer and a BAE Systems Global Engineering Fellow. Outside of his professional role he is an author of astronomy books and a science communicator with many publications and public lectures given in the UK and internationally.

Professor Kate Jeffery
Kate Jeffery is a neuroscientist researching how the brain makes an internal representation of space, the so-called "cognitive map", which it can use for navigation. She studied medicine originally, and as a student became interested in the question of how the brain makes "knowledge" using neurons. After qualification she embarked upon a research career to investigate this question by studying the activity of a class of brain cells called place cells, which seem to form the core of a place-knowledge system used for both navigation and memory. Her current research focuses on how the brain represents complex space, with a particular focus on two main issues: three dimensional space, and the internal “sense of direction”. She heads the Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience in the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences at UCL, and is co-director of the electrophysiology company Axona Ltd, which makes high-density recording systems for ---------behavioural neuroscientists. She is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology, the British Psychological Society and the Royal Institute of Navigation, and holds a Wellcome Trust Investigator Award.
