TUD COST Action TU1302
Satellite Positioning Performance Assessment for Road Transport



The aim of Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) is to contribute to the scientific objectives of a COST Action. These Missions aim at strengthening the existing COST Actions by allowing scientists to go to an institution or laboratory in another COST country to foster collaboration. The STSM call is open during the life of the Action. Each researcher has the possibility to apply for a STSM grant following the procedure described in the COST Vademecum (part 1, section 6). Guidelines for the STSMs GUIDELINES FOR APPLICANTS call 2016 STSM call for 2016 STSM (Short Term Scientific Mission) is part of COST Action activities and is aimed at supporting individual mobility by allowing scientists to visit an institution in another participating COST country. A minimum of 4 STSM each year is an obligation for our Action. The STSM coordinator and committee members have the pleasure to LAUNCH THE CALL FOR SHORT TERM SCIENTIFIC MISSIONS 2016. In the link below you will find the GUIDELINES FOR APPLICANTS. The early stage researchers are encourage to apply for a STSM. Potential topics, related with the current problem of SAPPART projects are:

  • quality of maps and input data used for map-matching and Geofencing in different applications;
  • algorithms used in Map-matching and Geofencing;
  • implementation of these processes currently performed on the ITS application side;
  • interoperability aspects which could facilitate a smart integration of PVT information (with the appropriate quality information) within the ITS applications;
  • possibility and interest of developing inside SaPPART “generic” parametric models of Map-matching and Geofencing processes on which the impact of the PVT quality could be studied in simulation.
  • Online application: https://e-services.cost.eu/stsm

We remind you that a letter of support from the home institution is required. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the coordinator.
