We are pleased to announce that a threedays workshop on relativistic positioning systems and their scientific applications will be held at Brdo near Kranj, Slovenia, on 1921 September 2012. The workshop is organized by the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the University of Ljubljana (UL) and ESA (Advanced Concepts Team). The goal of the workshop is to bring together those interested in the development of Relativistic Positioning Systems (RPS) and, in particular, to share ideas and establish future lines of research and collaborations.
