YGNSS Workshop on Interoperability and International Cooperation

Boulder, Colorado, USA

1 November, 2015


Applications for the YGNSS workshop are now closed!

Thank you for your interest!


The introduction Galileo, Beidou and new systems in the satellite navigation scene that will cohabitate with GPS-III and the new versions of GLONASS raised a wide and deep discussion on how users can benefit from a multi-system scenario. The navigation community has set up mechanisms of international cooperation (ICG Working Group A, annual meetings of the Interoperability Working Group) towards achieving a cluster of systems that can potentially complement each other.

Interoperability is thus a subject that will be of paramount importance in the future, as it is today and will require a mentality of international cooperation. However is not a core topic in a traditional GNSS college course, this workshop intends to fill that gap with compelling lectures, discussions and a hands-on tutorial.

This workshop brings to the next generation of GNSS professionals the actors of today. Top industry, research and academia get together to discuss the issues and potential of International Cooperation towards Interoperability of GNSS systems.
