BELS - Building European Links toward South East Asia in the field of EGNSS, an H2020 project coordinated by NavSAS, will co-organize the 7th Multi-GNSS Asia Conference in Brunei Darussalam in December together with Multi-GNSS Asia (MGA). The workshop is part of the awareness activities carried on by BELS and by MGA, an organization whose aim is to promote multi-GNSS utilization and applications in the Asia/Oceania Region. The collaboration with MGA started with the former Growing NAVIS project. BELS will collaborate with MGA to organize and carry on the Multi-GNSS Asia Conferences in the next years also in 2016 and 2017. For the first time, the 2015 edition will be co-organized with the collaboration of GNSS.asia, another H2020 project focused on EGNSS and funded by GSA that collaborates with BELS to promote the European GNSS technology in Asia.
The registration for the 7th Multi-GNSS Asia (MGA) Conference is open! Registration application form is available on Workshop page of the Multi-GNSS Demonstration Campaign website: http://www.multignss.asia/workshop.html until Wednesday, 30th September, 2015.

Brunei Darussalam – The Abode of Peace - is located in the heart of ASEAN. Equipped with rich natural resources it ranks 5th in per capita GDP*2. Beyond its traditional industry in petrochemicals Brunei Darussalam has been promoting a diversification of its economy. The usage of GNSS and other
GeoSpatial solutions is expected to increase productivity and efficiency.
This year’s conference main theme will be "GeoSpatial Challenges in the Asia-Pacific Region" thereby broadening the beyond GNSS to include related technologies and application including remote sensing and big data analysis relevant for South East Asian countries. For the first time this year an industrial session with experts from European and Asian countries will introduce new products and services with the aim to create business opportunities between participants. As in previous years, technical trends in Multi-GNSS, potential GNSS applications in the region, activity reports from MGA participants, progress reports on the joint experiments, and MGA future activities will be also presented.
