The 9th China Satellite Navigation Conference(CSNC 2018)

The 9th China Satellite Navigation Conference (CSNC) will be held from May 23-25, 2018 at Harbin International Exhibition Center in Harbin, China.

CSNC is supported by 16 national authorities, including China Satellite Navigation Office, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense, and Chinese Academy of Sciences. Organized by the Academic Exchange Center of China Satellite Navigation Office, the conference has been successfully held eight times in Beijing, Guangzhou, Wuhan, Nanjing, Xi’an, Changsha and Shanghai (twice). The conference is described as a large, high-level and representative academic exchange conference for satellite navigation systems, and CSNC boasts rich content and bears international influence.
