9th International Colloquium on Scientific and Fundamental Aspects of GNSS @ Wrocław, Poland

The 9th International Colloquium on Scientific and Fundamental Aspects of GNSS will bring together members of the European scientific community and their international partners involved in the use of Galileo and other GNSS in their research.

The colloquium will address several major areas of research:

  • Scientific applications in meteorology, geodesy, geodynamics, geophysics, space physics, oceanography, land surface and ecosystem studies.
  • Scientific developments in physics with a potential impact on future GNSS, particularly in testing fundamental laws of physics.
  • Aspects of metrology such as reference frames, on board and ground clocks, precise orbit determination and time and frequency transfer.
  • Scientific aspects of satellite navigation, positioning and its applications.
  • Other topics of interest such as big data, IoT, novel disruptive technologies, Cubesats, HAPS, UAVs and autonomous vehicles.
  • Systems and technologies for navigation in space.
