1st KuVS Expert Talk on Localization - Report
Note: The KuVS Expert Talk on Localization was renewed for 2016. We are proud to announce the 2nd KuVS Expert Talk on Localization!
On 24 April 2015, the first KuVS Expert Talk was held in Lübeck, Germany. The Expert Talk on Localization provided a forum for presentation and discussion of new research and ideas in a local setting, bringing together experts and practitioners from academia and industry. The Expert Talk received attention even beyond Germany, featuring speakers and participants from eleven different institutions including Hamburg, Aachen, Berlin, Munich and Bern with a total of 22 attendees.
The program of the expert talk included nine high quality contributions on current research. The abstracts were published in the “Aachener Informatik Berichte” . Each contribution was presented in a 20-minute talk with additional Q&A after each presentation. Extended breaks between sessions provided attendees a possibility to discuss current issues and exchange ideas. We had lively discussions and exchange of ideas during the Q&A and the breaks. The goal meeting each other and getting to know other researchers in this field of research and there recent works was fully met.
In addition to traditional localization topics such as radio based localization, during the Expert Talk novel technologies were presented related to algorithms, stability, reliability, and applications. The attendees agreed to have a regular exchange in the format of Expert Talk and provided ideas how to develop the series of talks with demos and working sessions.

Localization is a major technology in the field of medical, industrial and logistics applications. Especially for indoor applications can benefit e.g. the knowledge, where doctors are required, scarce resources are scattered, and goods are moving, can safe lives, time and money.
The expert talk offer researchers a platform to discuss recent results of their work and share opinions among each other. They are invited to talk about current issues and upcoming challenges. It provides a platform to strengthen cooperations between researchers.
The CFP is here.
Topics of interests are (but not limited)
- Technologies (Optical Systems, Inertial Measurement Units, Ultra Wide Band, Wi-Fi-Fingerprinting, RSSI, Magnetic or other innovative systems)
- Applications (Industrial, Medical, Consumer, Frameworks, Security and Privacy issues, Mapping, …)
- Algorithms and Protocol for Localization and Navigation
- Indoor Localization and Navigations
- Long term Stability and Robustness of Localization Techniques
- Time synchronization, ToA, TDoA, AoA
- User requirements (Pedestrian, Industrial, …)
- Visualization (2D, 3D, …)
- Emerging Standards for Location and Route Exchange
Abstracts must present original, research or experience. Late breaking advances and work-in-progress reports from ongoing research are also encouraged.
