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, abstract sessions, and poster sessions for academic exchanges.

The conference papers in English presented at the ICGNC 2024 will be published by  Springer-Nature in Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering (indexed by EI-Compendex). The extended version of some excellent English papers will be published by  "Guidance, Navigation and Control". The accepted Chinese papers will be published by some famous Journals (including "SCIENTIA SINICA Technologica"   , "SCIENTIA SINICA Informationis", "Acta Aeronautica et Astronautica Sinica", "Chinese Journal of Engineering", "Systems Engineering and Electronics","CAAI Transactions on Intelligent Systems",  "Journal of Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics" , "Journal of Nanjing University of Aeronautics & Astronautics", "Journal of National University of Defense Technology",  "Journal of Shanghai Jiaotong University", "Navigation Positioning and Timing", and " Aero Weaponry" .

ICGNC 2024 will be held in Changsha on August 9-11, 2024, following the successes of previous nine events. It is sponsored by Technical Committee on Guidance, Navigation and Control (TCGNC), Chinese Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics (CSAA), and National Key Laboratory of Aircraft Integrated Flight Control. It is technically co-sponsored by State Key Laboratory of Virtual Reality Technology, 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), Technical Committee on Control Theory (TCCT), Chinese Association of Automation (CAA), Technical Committee on Robotics Intelligence (TCRI), Chinese Association of Automation (CAA), Education Committee(EC),  Chinese Association of Automation (CAA). ICGNC 2024 is organized by National University of Defense Technology. We sincerely welcome our colleagues worldwide to join us for this conference.
