This colloquium brings together members of the European scientific community and their international partners involved in the use of the global navigation satellite system (GNSS), and in particular Galileo, in their research. The various possibilities to use GNSS satellites for scientific purposes shall be reviewed. The colloquium shall contribute to GNSS development in general based on scientific approaches, in particular to raise awareness of those in charge of GNSS development and operations, as well as in development of recent scientific achievements in the field.
The colloquium will address five major areas of research:
- scientific applications in several sectors
- scientific developments in physics with potential impact on future GNSS
- aspects of metrology
- scientific aspects of satellite navigation, positioning and its applications
- transversal topics of interest to a wide number of scientific fields
The conference will be organised as a series of plenary talks, parallel half-day sessions and poster presentations throughout the duration of the event.
The conference is organised by the European Space Agence (ESA) and the ETH Zurich.
