The Inertial Sensors and Systems 2015 was held in Karlsruhe, Germany at 22 and 23 September 2015.
For the 9th time the international conference “Inertial Sensors and Systems" took place in Karlsruhe, Germany, organized by the “Institute of Systems Optimization (ITE)” together with the “German Institute of Navigation (DGON)”, cosponsored by the “Royal Institute of Navigation (RIN)” and by the IEEE Aerospace and Electronic Systems Society (AESS).
The aim of our conference was twofold: first to offer high quality presentations, but most important to provide a neutral forum for networking of representatives of industry, governmental institutions and academia.
The members of the program committee covered university as well as relevant German sensors and systems companies: Dr. W. Auch, Sagem Navigation; Dr. E. von Hinüber, IMAR; Dr. W. Geiger, Robert Bosch GmbH; T. Löffler, Diehl BGT Defence; Dr. S. Zimmermann, Northrop Grumman Litef; and Prof. J. Wagner, University of Stuttgart.
This year Dr. W. Auch served for the last time as member of the program committee due to his retirement in the next future. For 28 years he was a constant factor with his permanent support of this event. We all are appreciating his deep engagement with our sincere thanks.
19 technical papers from 11 nations out of 36 paper submissions were presented, covering accelerometers, MEMS sensors, vibrating gyroscopes, fiber optic gyroscopes, inertial sensor fusion, inertial systems applications and finally simulation and testing.
A guided tour through the City of Karlsruhe, celebrating its 300th anniversary, as well as the great dinner at the Ballroom of the “Karlsruhe Institute of Technology” provided many opportunities for networking of the participants and deepening personal relations.
I would like to express my deep gratitude to the program committee for selecting the high level papers, to the staff of the “Institute of Systems Optimization ITE” for their highly motivated technical and logistic support, and especially to the conference managers Mrs. A. Ziemba and Dr. A. Teltschik for their perfect organization of this successful conference.
The next conference “Inertial Sensors and Systems” will be take place again in Karlsruhe from 20 to 21 September 2016.
