Call for Papers

This conference is addressed to researchers, industry/market operators and students of different backgrounds (scientific, engineering and humanistic) whose work is either focused on or affined to Location Based Services (LBS). The conference will offer a common ground to bring together colleagues from various disciplines and practice where they can meet, interact and exchange knowledge, experience, plans and ideas on how LBS can and could be improved and on how it will influence both science and society.

We want to encourage those working in and with current issues in location based services to share their developments, research and results.

Contribution Type

We invite to the following type of contribution:
- The word limit are intended for pure text without references and table/figure captions -

  • Full paper (up to 3000 words, in English) to present original work on contemporary location based topics. Submitted full paper will be reviewed by the scientific committee.
  • Abstracts (up to 800 words, in English) to present ongoing work on contemporary location based topics. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific committee.

We are exploring the potential for a special issue of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography or a special issue of Journal of Location Based Services (JLBS) after the conference, which will have a separate review process. Authors of selected submissions from the above categories will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to this special issue.

Author Kit

We provides an example paper in PDF and DOC format to demonstrate the style and the actual MS Word templates for submissions:
