The IGS Symposium & Workshop

GMV is sponsoring the IGS Symposium & Workshop, an event with the motto “Three Decades of Service for Science and Society,” taking place in Bern from July 1 to 5. Around 200 participants from around the world are expected to attend.

The IGS (International GNSS Service) started its operational service on January 1, 1994. During the course of preparing for this operational phase, the first IGS workshop was held at the University of Bern from March 25 to 26, 1993, focusing on analysis centers. The first decade of operational service was celebrated at an IGS workshop hosted again in Bern, Switzerland by the University of Bern in March 2004.

To celebrate 30 years of operational service in 2024, the University of Bern together with the partners from the CODE consortium (AIUB: Astronomical Institute of the University of Bern, Switzerland; swisstopo: Swiss Federal Office of Topography, Wabern, Switzerland; BKG: Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy, Frankfurt a. M., Germany; IAPG/TUM: Institute for Astronomical and Physical Geodesy, Technical University of Munich, Germany) invites the community to celebrate the third decade with a symposium together with an IGS workshop again in Bern, Switzerland at the facilities of the University of Bern. This in-person event is planned for the week of July 1 to 5, 2024 and will take place in two parts: symposium (July 1-4) and workshop (July 4-5).

In addition to sponsoring the event, GMV will have a space in the exhibition hall and will give a talk at the poster session.
