The annual International Symposium on GNSS has been an open forum for international researchers and practitioners -- especially in the Asia Pacific region, to discuss most recent technologies and applications, to exchange innovative ideas and experiences, and to promote future research opportunities in the fields related to Global Navigation Satellite Systems.

Over the years, the symposium has been held in a number of attractive and tradition-rich locations, including Hong Kong, Istanbul, Jeju, Johor Bahru, Kyoto, Seoul, Sydney, Taipei, Tokyo, Wuhan, and Xian (in alphabetical order). This year, for the first time, the symposium will take place in the historical city of Tainan from 5 to 7 December, 2016. As the oldest city in Taiwan, Tainan was the capital of Taiwan during imperial times, and has been famous for its temples, historical architectures, and delicious food.

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee, I would like to welcome all of you to the International Symposium on GNSS 2016 (ISGNSS 2016). The symposium venue will be at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), which is known for its beautiful campuses and high academic reputation. We are doing our best to make ISGNSS 2016 a memorable event for all of you. And we look forward to seeing you in Tainan this December.

Sincerely Yours,

The annual International Symposium on Global Navigation Satellite System (IS-GNSS) has been an important forum for researchers, engineers, practitioners, and manufacturers to share the up-to-date information and technology on GNSS, to explore opportunities for collaborations in positioning, navigation and timing, and to stimulate innovative applications and methods to benefit the society. It is my great pleasure to invite you to submit your original research papers to the IS-GNSS 2016 which will be held in Tainan, Taiwan from December 5th to 7th, 2016. A special issue in the Journal of Aeronautics, Astronautics and Aviation has been arranged for authors who wish to have their papers peer‐reviewed and published in a high‐quality journal. We also welcome proposals for organizing sessions on the symposium topics. Look forward to seeing you in Tainan.
