United Nations/ICTP Workshop on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) | (smr 2617)
Co-organized and co-sponsored by The International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems
The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy, jointly with the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA), are organizing a Workshop on the Use of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) for Scientific Applications, to be held at ICTP, Trieste, Italy, from 1 to 5 December 2014. The event is co-organized and co-sponsored by the International Committee on Global Navigation Satellite Systems ICG, with sponsorship from the United States of America and the European Commission.
The Workshop will discuss state-of-the-art applications with emphasis on the scientific exploration of the Earth's environment using GNSS and review on-going and planned initiatives as well as new research programmes utilizing GNSS ground- and space-based measurements to observe ionospheric and space weather phenomena. Cooperative efforts and international partnerships for capacity-building, training and research, including the activities of the ICTP will also be presented.
The Workshop programme will include plenary sessions and sufficient time for discussions among participants to identify the priority areas where pilot projects should be launched and examine possible partnerships that could be established. The Local Organizing Committee will arrange a half-day technical tour during the Workshop.
