This conference aims to provide an atmosphere for researchers and engineers to discuss, exchange and expose ideas, methods and results in conventional, contemporary and future topics of positioning and ultraprecision positioning technologies. The first meeting was held as Korea-Japan Joint Conference in October 2002 in Taejon, Korea. Because the positioning technology is fundamental to nanotechnology and other high-tech industries all over the world, the conference was expanded to International Conference on Positioning Technology. The conferences were held as follows.
