Call for Papers


October 12-13, Oxford, UK


International Conference on Geolocation and CyberTravel for Law Enforcement and Fraud Control (Geo-IP 2016) is an international referred conference dedicated to the advancement of Geographical Location of Cyber Physical Systems, and Cyber Travel for Law Enforcement and Fraud Control purposes. We welcome new and innovative contributions that provide insight to theoretical underpinnings, foundational research, methods and practical implementation of geo-location systems, advances in the implementation, design and accuracy and precision of geo-location systems, and the implications of use of such systems in the ecosystem.


The aim of the GeoIP 2016 is to encourage participation and promotion of collaborative scientific, industrial and academic inter-workings among individual researchers, practitioners, members of existing associations, academia, standardisation bodies, and including government departments and agencies. The purpose is to build bridges between academia and industry, and to encourage interplay of different cultures.


GeoIP 2016 invites researchers and industry practitioners to submit papers that encompass principles, analysis, design, methods and applications. All submitted papers will be independently peer-reviewed.


The conference proceedings will be published and submitted for bibliographic indexing and listing by the following: IEEE Xplore Digital Library, DBLP Computer Science, Scopus, CiteSeerX, Computer Science Index, EI Compendex, Academic Search Complete, CiteULike, Google Scholar & Microsoft Academic Search.



GeoIP 2016 is co-located with other conferences as part of Counter Fraud 2016.

  • Posters will be presented during the conference.
  • Industry track is available for discussing and publishing pilot and proof of concepts.
  • Work in Progress track is available for preliminary work.
  • Research Ideas track is available for ideas in early stages assessment.
  • PhD Seminar track is available for discussing and publishing early PhD thesis research.

All accepted submissions, including Industry track, Work in Progress track, Research Ideas track and PhD Seminar track will be published in the conference proceedings.


All submissions, including abstracts and full papers should be submitted via the Easychair Conference Site
