      Location-based services for Indoor Smart Environments (LISE)

		  a workshop co-located with IPIN 2013
			28th - 31th October 2013
		     Montbéliar - Belfort (France)


The improvement and development of indoor localization systems during
the last years paved the way for new services, beyond navigation, that
make use of location data as a base feature. Such services encompass
many different application areas, ranging from entertainment to ambient
assisted living, remote medical assistance, social networking,
electronic commerce to name the most popular. Location based services
are often made available to users by means of mobile devices through the
mobile network, but they can even be embedded into the environment to
build Smart Environments, which provide assistance to humans in a large
number of activities. In fact, the kinds of services available in a
smart environment may differ with respect to the type of environment,
but they often rely on localization information. These developments have
also become more and more important in the last years due to the
expansion of the market of mobile devices and the business cases beyond

The objective of this workshop is to involve both experts of indoor
localization and application experts to discuss the current status and
future perspectives and development of indoor localization applied to
developments of services in Smart Environments. The scope is restricted
to indoor environments.


The workshop is hosted by IPIN <http://ipin-conference.org>, the
conference on Indoor Positioning and Indoor Navigation, now in its
fourth year. Registration is required, according to the rules set by the
conference organisers. LISE is a peer-reviewed workshop: each paper will
generally receive three reviews. Proceedings of LISE will be published
online in the IEEE Xplore database. Selected best papers will be
recommended for publication in a SCI-indexed international journal
(check the Special Issues page on IPIN's web site for details) and
reviewed by the journal’s editorial team. Accepted manuscripts will be
published in a special issue.  More detail on the workshop web page at
