Abstract Submissions Open for GNSS Event in Switzerland

Abstract submissions are open for the 7th International Colloquium on Scientific and Fundamental Aspects of GNSS until March 31.

The event, which is organized by the European Space Agency and ETH Zürich, will take place Sept. 4-6 in Zürich, Switzerland.

The event will bring together members of the European scientific community and their international partners involved in the use of GNSS — specifically Galileo — in their research. In addition, attendees will discuss opportunities where GNSS satellites can be used for scientific purposes.

According to event organizers, the colloquium will address five major areas of research, including:

  1. Scientific applications in meteorology, geodesy, geodynamics, geophysics, space physics, oceanography, land surface and ecosystem studies, using either direct or reflected signals, differential measurements, phase measurements, radio occultation measurements, using receivers placed on the ground, in airplanes or on satellites;
  2. Scientific developments in physics with a potential impact on future GNSS, particularly in testing fundamental laws of physics;
  3. Aspects of metrology such as reference frames, on board and ground clocks, precise orbit determination and time and frequency transfer;
  4. Scientific aspects of satellite navigation, positioning and its applications, such as signal propagation, tropospheric and ionospheric corrections, multi-constellation aspects, hybridisation with additional sensors and integrated navigation, precise positioning;
  5. Transversal topics of interest to a wide number of scientific fields including collection of GNSS big data and GNSS scientific data archives; internet of things positioning for science; scientific payloads in GNSS satellites; novel disruptive technologies for science; the use of cubesats, HAPS, UAVs and autonomous vehicles for GNSS science; software receivers and low-cost SDR platforms; GNSS for space users and applications; and the topic of GNSS science and education.

The conference will be organized as a series of plenary talks, parallel half-day sessions and poster presentations throughout the duration of the event, event organizers add.
