The 4th China Satellite Navigation Conference (CSNC 2013) will be held on May 15-17, 2013 in Wuhan, China. It will incorporate a wide range of activities, such as academic exchange, high-level forum, and technical presentations.

A China Satellite Navigation Technology and Application Achievement Exhibition will be held all three days in parallel with the event.

The official language of CSNC 2013 is Chinese. Simultaneous English translation and Chinese- and English-language PowerPoint slides will be provided at all academic exchanges of CSNC 2013, including the opening forum on Day 1, special reports, and presentations at the nine conference sessions, and the application industrialization forum.

Conference highlights include the establishment of the CSNC Excellent Paper Award, represents the event’s highest academic honor. Available for the first time this year, the award program will select nine winners, regardless of age. New rules have also been developed for an associated Excellent Youth Paper Award, with 40 winners receiving benefits ranging from research funding to cash awards of up to RMB30,000 (US$4,827).

CSNC 2013 will open on May 15 with a plenary session, updates by providers on systems and services, and invited presentations. Technical sessions will take place on May 16 and 17.

The BeiDou system has already been put into formal operation and applied in many areas. An Industrialization Forum on May 16 will focus on the exhibition of concrete BeiDou applications and their benefits. In addition, the forum will provide further communication and discussion of state policies and governmental support for satellite navigation, including four topic areas of industrial environment, application effects, industrial research, and dialog and exchange.

The Institute of Navigation (ION) from the United States will organize panel sessions on May 17 to strengthen international exchange. ION also sponsored a session at last year’s CSNC held in Guangzhou.

The three-day exhibition will highlight uses of the BeiDou system in major industries and key regions of China.
