IAG-IASPEI Joint Scientific Assembly

July 30 - August 4

Joint Scientific Assembly of the International Association of Geodesy (IAG) and International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth’s Interior (IASPEI) will be held July 30-Aug. 4 in Kobe, Japan.

The assembly is sponsored by the Geodetic Society of Japan, the Seismological Society of Japan (SSJ) and the IAG-IASPEI 2017 Local Organizing Committee.

“The city of Kobe experienced a devastating earthquake in 1995. But 20 years later, it is our pleasure to have the scientific assembly accommodating a wide variety of research including the fields of geodesy and seismology in the city that has completely recovered,” the organizers said.

The assembly includes IAG Symposium G05, “Multi-signal positioning: theory and applications,” described below.

G05 Multi-signal positioning: Theory and applications

Conveners: Marcelo Santos, Allison Kealy, Vassilis Gikas, Pawel Wielgosz, Jinling Wang.

Signals of various types have been used for positioning in different applications at different levels of accuracy. They can be used separately but have been increasingly integrated. This symposium deals with theoretical developments and applications of multi-signal positioning.

The organizers invite the submissions of papers dealing with, but not excluded to, manned or unmanned, multi-sensor systems navigation and guidance, transportation, personal mobility, industrial and indoor positioning applications environmental monitoring, used of low-cost sensors including GNSS systems and smartphone navigation sensors, geospatial mapping and engineering, ranging from construction work, geotechnical and structural health monitoring, mining, to natural phenomena such as landslides and ground subsidence, geodetic applications and high-precision GNSS technologies and applications and the use of multi-signals stemming from modernized signals and issues and opportunities coming from multi-constellation signals.

The integration of different types of signals brings all sorts of challenges and opportunities and this symposium is open to any discussion about them.
