Dear Colleagues,

The abstract submission deadline has been extended to February 21 for 
the joint scientific assembly
of IAG and IASPEI, to be held from July 30 to August 4, 2017, in Kobe, 
Japan.  Various symposia
(7 IAG, 27 IASPEI and 9 joint symposia) were proposed.  Plenary lectures 
will be delivered by
Kosuke Heki (Hokkaido University), Barbara Romanowicz (UC Berkeley) and 
Manabu Hashimoto
(Kyoto University) during the opening ceremony. Half-day (morning) field 
trips to Nojima Fault
Museum (preservation of surface fault of the 1995 Kobe earthquake) are 
planned during the
assembly. More details are found at the assembly website 

If you haven't already done so, this is your opportunity to consider 
participating in the IAG symposia
in Kobe.  As co-convenors, we are specifically soliciting abstracts to 
our IAG Symposium G01 "Reference Frames",  described below. Abstracts 
relating to reference frames are welcome from all researchers 
irrespective  of IAG affiliation.

Note that in this four-year cycle of IAG's structure, IAG Commission 1 
on "Reference Frames" is now
addressing a very broad variety of topics related to reference frames, 
including (for example) relativistic
geodesy, co-location using common parameters in space, co-location using 
clocks and new sensors,
troposphere ties, next generation reference frames, environmental 
loading effects, etc.
We therefore would especially encourage abstract submission from all of 
you working with Commission 1,
including the many subcommissions and their working groups, joint study 
groups, and joint working groups.

Please find more information on IAG Commission 1 at 

Thank you for considering your participation at Kobe in July/August!

(With apologies for cross-posting).

IAG Symposium G01 Reference frames

Reference systems and frames are of primary importance for Earth science 
based research, satellite navigation as well as for practical 
applications in geo-information. A precisely defined reference frame is 
needed for an improved understanding of the Earth's rotation and its 
gravity field, sea level change with time, tectonic plate motion and 
deformation, glacial isostatic adjustment, geocenter motion, deformation 
due to Earthquakes, local subsidence and other crustal displacements. We 
invite presentations dealing with theoretical aspects and the practical 
realization of reference frames, as well as their application for 
research tasks like those mentioned above. Further emphases of the 
session are on global terrestrial and regional reference frames, 
celestial reference frames, and the co-location of space geodetic 
techniques on ground and in space.
