What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Computer vision
  • Computer network

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The topics of Artificial intelligence, Computer vision, Real-time computing, Inertial measurement unit and Algorithm are the focal point of discussions in International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation. While Artificial intelligence is the focus of the conference, it also provided insights into the studies of Ultra-wideband, Dead reckoning, Trajectory and Pattern recognition. Topics in Computer vision explored in the event were investigated in conjunction with research in Gyroscope, Simultaneous localization and mapping and Indoor positioning system.

While work presented in it provided substantial information on Real-time computing, it also covered topics in Signal strength, Tracking (particle physics), Bluetooth, Non-line-of-sight propagation and Robustness (computer science). The research on Inertial measurement unit featured in it combines topics in other fields like Ground truth and Simulation. The concepts on Simulation presented in International Conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation can also apply to other research fields, including Inertial navigation system and Extended Kalman filter.

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • Scalable and precise multi-UAV indoor navigation using TDOA-based UWB localization (56 citations)
  • An integrated IMU and UWB sensor based indoor positioning system (32 citations)
  • Improving foot-mounted inertial navigation through real-time motion classification (27 citations)

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2017 edition, 3.64% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 34.91% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 16.98% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 26.42% of all publications and 21.70% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
