Due to multiple requests, we decided to extend the deadline for submission of full papers to 15 June 2016 to give you two more weeks for finalizing your full papers!

We are looking forward to your contributions!
The ICA Commission on Location-Based Services is currently starting an initiative to develop a cross-cutting research agenda for the field of Location-Based Services (LBS), aiming to identify key research questions and challenges that are essential for the LBS development in the next 5 or 10 years.
The details of the initiative are available here at: http://lbs.icaci.org/research-agenda/
As a first step in this process, we invite all interested parties to write a one paragraph proposal to describe what they believe are the “big problems” that should be addressed to bring LBS research into a higher level. The commission chairs together with several invited experts will then examine, classify, and group these proposals, and provide a first list of “key problems”. The list will be circulated to the LBS research community, and we will then invite everyone to write a one-page position paper to further develop cross-cutting research directions and plans toward these “key problems”.
- 15 July 2016, deadline for one paragraph proposals of “big problems” in LBS. Please submit your proposal here.
- 20 August 2016, publication of the selected “key problems” on the commission website
- 1 October 2016, deadline for expression of interest in writing a one-page position paper
- 1 November 2016, deadline for one-page position papers
We are exploring the possibility of having a workshop, preceding the LBS 2016 in Vienna, to discuss these position papers and the cross-cutting research directions.
Please feel free to distribute the information to your network and contacts. Everyone is invited to join and contribute!
We are looking forward to your one-paragraph proposal by 15 July 2016!
