Workshop - Relativistic Positioning Systems and their Scientific Applications

Brdo near Kranj, Slovenia, 19-21 September 2012

Einstein on GNSS

We are pleased to announce that a three-days workshop on relativistic positioning systems and their scientific applications will be held at Brdo near Kranj, Slovenia, on 19-21 September 2012. The workshop is organized by the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the University of Ljubljana (UL), ESA (Advanced Concepts Team) and Centre of Excellence Space-si. 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.

Workshop poster for download.

Topics of the workshop include:

  • Formulation of relativistic positioning systems and properties of emission coordinates
  • Application to GNSS, relativistic reference frames, pulsar-based navigation and localization
  • Inter-satellite links and autonomous GNSS
  • Relativistic celestial mechanics (coordinate systems, Hamiltonian techniques...)
  • Application to Earth sciences, astronomy and metrology

Also other contributions in line with the aims of the workshop will be considered.

Confirmed invited speakers:

  • Bartolomé Coll (Universitat de València)
  • Angelo Tartaglia (Politecnico di Torino)
  • Francisco Amarillo Fernandez (ESA)
  • Carlo Rovelli (CPT Luminy)
  • Andrej Čadež (Univ. of Ljubljana)

Important information

  • There is no registration fee.
  • The proceedings of the workshop will be published in Acta Futura
