Colloquium on scientific applications of Galileo

The first international colloquium on the fundamental aspects and scientific applications of Galileo and global navigation satellite systems will be held at the Cité de l’Espace in Toulouse from 1 to 4 October 2007:

The colloquium will address three major issues:

* the fundamental aspects of navigation by satellites and Galileo – geodetic and temporal reference frames, relativistic frame, on board and ground clocks, orbits, radiation environment in orbit, inter-satellite links, fundamental aspects of propagation, tropospheric and ionospheric corrections, calibration and validation, relations with international organisations
* scientific applications in meteorology, geodesy, geophysics, space physics, oceanography, land surface and ecosystem studies – using either direct or reflected signals; differential measurements, phase measurements, occultation measurements – using receivers placed on the ground, in airplanes or in scientific satellites
* scientific developments in physics and dealing with future systems, particularly in testing fundamental laws, in astronomy, in quantum communication, and in developing clocks or experiments based on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS)
