G-NAVIS Summer School

A one-week Summer School entitled “Multi-GNSS environment for sustainable development” will be organized in Vietnam from 9 to 13 September 2013. The School will be held in Hoi An (a UNESCO world heritage city near Da Nang), Vietnam. The opening will take place the evening of Sunday 8 September.

The Summer School is intended for researchers, technicians, PhD students, Public and private decision makers who operate in GNSS (GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, COMPASS) and RNSS (QZSS, GAGAN, etc.) related fields and are willing to increase their knowledge on GNSS. In order to participate in the school, working and/or study experience in GNSS related activities is requested.

The school is organized by the G-NAVIS Consortium. Experts form these institutions and possibly from other relevant Agencies will provide the instructors for the School.

The activities:

  • Technical sessions are intended for attendants with a solid technical knowledge of GNSS and will provide information on different important topics of GNSS with technical details and insight.
  • Introduction to GNSS sessions are intended for attendants that are somehow familiar with GNSS related activities, but have less specific background on GNSS technology and are willing to brush up their expertise on different aspects of the use of GNSS.
  • Working groups.
  • Industry presentations and applications (ITS, maritime, rail, LBS, remote sensing, timing etc.).
  • Presentation of the results of working groups.

“Technical sessions” and “Introduction to GNSS” sessions will be conducted in parallel ad attendants have to choose, in the application stage, which group of lectures they are willing to attend.

The total number of attendees will be limited to 25-30 people. The number of participants in each group will be at most 20.
