Registration for the International Navigation Conference 2018 (INC2018), taking place Nov. 12-15 at the Mercure Bristol Grand Hotel in Bristol, England, will be open until Nov. 15.

The conference, sponsored by the Royal Institute of Navigation (RIN), is a premier forum for the presentation of research and advances in navigation. The theme of INC2018 is Navigation Challenges and Societal Benefits.”

According to RIN, INC2018 will offer a unique format of multiple keynotes throughout the three days. The sessions and themes will address key navigation topics, including cognition in navigation; human factors in navigation systems; connected autonomous vehicles; innovations in accuracy and indoor navigation, innovations in resilient positioning, navigation and timing; mapping, imaging and augmented reality; and progress in quantum.

This year’s INC will also feature a one-day symposium covering topics related to cognitive navigation. According to RIN, cognitive navigation is distinguished from other kinds of navigation methods/technology by the dependence on some type of representation of the to-be-navigated space. The goal of the symposium is to bring academics and industry experts together to facilitate the development of our understanding of and design for cognitive navigators, so that buildings and technology can work in a seamless way with human psychology.
