The European Frequency and Time Forum (EFTF) is a technical conference for time and frequency products and related technologies. It brings together researchers and technologists from manufacturers, service providers, operators, application developers, National Metrology laboratories, defence timing, and standards bodies to share the latest information and promote the development of precise time and frequency systems and components.

Tutorials will be held on Monday, June 23, followed by the conference and exhibition on June 24-26.

Tutorials include both the fundamental topics of frequency and timing at a level suitable for practitioners new to the field, and more advanced and specialized topics related to specific areas.

The EFTF plenary presentation takes place on  Wednesday, July 25. The speakers will be Professor Serge Haroche, ENS and Collège de France (Nobel Prize for Physics 2012), and Dr. John Kitching, NIST (USA).

Among the sessions for the EFTF working group, Group 5 is of particular interest to readers of Inside GNSS. The session topics are:

  • Group 1: Materials, Resonators, & Resonator Circuits
  • Group 2: Oscillators, Synthesizers, Noise, & Circuit Techniques
  • Group 3: Microwave Frequency Standards
  • Group 4: Sensors & Transducers
  • Group 5: Timekeeping, T&F Transfer, Telecom and GNSS applications
  • Group 6: Optical Frequency Standards and Applications

A number of social activities, including a trip to the International Watch Museum, are offered during the conference.
