International Conference on Guidance, Navigation and Control (ICGNC) is a biennial event, which is also one of the leading events in Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC). It provides a forum for scientists and engineers over the world to present their new theoretical results and techniques in the fields of GNC. The conference consists of pre-conference tutorials, plenary talks, panel discussions, invited sessions, oral sessions and poster sessions for academic exchanges.

The conference papers in English presented at the ICGNC 2020 will be published by  Springer-Nature in Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering (indexed by EI-Compendex). The accepted Chinese papers will be published by some famous Jornals (including  "SCIENTIA SINICA Technologica", "Acta Aeronautica et Astronautica Sinica","Journal of Astronautics",  "CAAI Transactions on Intelligent Systems", "JOURNAL OF SHANGHAI JIAOTONG UNIVERSITY", "Journal of Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics" , "Journal of Nanjing University of Aeronautics & Astronautics", "MEASUREMENT & CONTROL TECHNOLOGY", "NAVIGATION POSITIONING AND TIMING", " Aero Weaponry", etc.), where educational innovation papers will be published by some famous Jornals  (including "Research and Exploration in Laboratory" , "Journal of Electrical & Electronic Education", etc.).

ICGNC 2020 will be held in Tianjin on August 7-9, 2020, following the successes of previous eight events. It is sponsored by Technical Committee on Guidance, Navigation and Control (TCGNC), Chinese Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics (CSAA), and Science and Technology on Aircraft Control Laboratory. It is technically co-sponsored by Technical Committee on Navigation, Guidance and Control (TCNGC), Chinese Association of Automation (CAA), Technical Committee on Unmanned Aerial Systems Autonomous Control (TCUASAC), Chinese Association of Automation (CAA), and Technical Committee on Control Theory (TCCT), Chinese Association of Automation (CAA), Technical Committee on Swarm Intelligence and Cooperative Control (TCSICC), Chinese Institute of Command and Control (CICC). ICGNC 2020 is organized by Civil Aviation University of China, and Tianjin University. We sincerely welcome our colleagues worldwide to join us for this conference.
