Call for Papers

The ICA Commission on Location Based Services and Technische Universität Wien are pleased to invite you to contribute to the 15th International Conference on Location Based Services (LBS 2019).

Participants and Focus

Built on the success of previous conferences in this series, LBS 2019 is addressed to scholars, researchers, digital industry / market operators, and students of different backgrounds (scientific, engineering and humanistic) whose work is either focused on or relevant to location based services (LBS). The conference will offer a common ground to 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 invite contributions in the following areas (but not limited to):

  • Ubiquitous positioning
    • Outdoor and indoor positioning
    • Multi-sensor system and sensor fusion
  • Context modelling and context-awareness
    • Smart environments and ambient spatial intelligence
