Relativistic Positioning Systems And Their Scientific Applications
The Advanced Concepts Team of the European Space Agency and the the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the University of Ljubljana (UL) organize a workshop on relativistic positioning systems.
In this workshop we will 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.
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.
The proceedings of the workshop will be published on a refereed journal.
There is no registration fee, but people interested in attending should register here by the 1st of July 2012.
