The Society on Communication, Navigation, Sensing and Services (CONASENSE) is a new scientific society with the vision on Communication, Navigation, Sensing and Services (CNSS), 20 to 50 years from now. CONASENSE is organizing a Special Session on the related topics that is part of the Technical program of WPMC 2012 to be held on September 24-27, 2012, in Taipei, Taiwan.

The next generation communication systems will require the support of a variety of services and applications. The subscriber will demand services at different locations having a seamless single subscriber entrance. This evolution demands an effective integration of communication networks as well as location-dependent services and context sensing for evaluating the situation. Therefore, there is a need for a common platform aimed to the synergistic combination of technologies for communications, positioning and sensing systems able to effectively use information about location, context and situation of several entities.

A very important integration strategy concerns communications, positioning and sensing systems. This integrated vision involves an "active" integration with new business opportunities able to merge three worlds - communications, navigation and local/remote sensing - that have been apart for years. This vision is the focus of the Communications, Navigation, Sensing and Services (CNSS) paradigm. In CNSS, communications, navigation and sensing systems can mutually assist each other by exploiting a bidirectional interaction among them. This Special Session will explore the related research challenges and will become a platform for discussions and expressing various viewpoints
