IEEE/ION PLANSx 2020 is an outgrowth of the IEEE/ION Position Location and Navigation Symposium 2020 meeting originally scheduled to take place in April and rescheduled due to COVID-19. IEEE/ION PLANSx 2020 will be hosted by ION GNSS+ 2020 and will take place during ION GNSS+ 2020 on Wednesday September 23-Friday, September 25, at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri.
The IEEE/ION PLANSx 2020 technical program will include a collection of the peer-reviewed papers originally scheduled to be presented in April.

IEEE/ION PLANS is the biennial technical conference that occurs in the spring of even numbered years whose mission is to provide a forum to share the latest advances in navigation technology. The IEEE/ION PLANS conference is jointly sponsored by the Aerospace and Electronics Systems Society (AESS) and the Institute of Navigation (ION). The AESS is sponsored by the IEEE, which is the world's largest professional engineering organization.
