Signal Processing Techniques for Anywhere, Anytime Positioning

The Special Issue will showcase the latest research results on signal processing for ubiquitous positioning, and in particular on the techniques to increase the accuracy, availability, and reliability of position indication of a user terminal, including indoor environments.
