Dear Colleagues,

As you may be aware, February 8 is the abstract deadline for the 
IAG-IASPEI Joint Scientific Assembly to be held from July 30 to August 4 
in Kobe, Japan, with details given in the web site

Please consider submitting an abstract to  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.

If we knew what we were doing, it wouldn’t be called research.
