An annual conference that rotates among countries in the Asia-Pacific region, the International Symposium on GPS/GNSS 2008 will be held at the Tokyo International Exchange Center (TIEC).

It is organized by the GPS/GNSS Society of the Japan Institute of Navigation and hosted by Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology.

This is the ninth International Symposium. In addition to Tokyo, conferences have been held in Seoul and Jeju, Korea; Hong Kong and Wuhan, China; Sydney, Australia; and Johor Bar, Malaysia.

The deadline for abstracts for refereed papers is June 16, 2008.

Symposium topics range from status of all four GNSSes and QZSS, the Japanese regional satellite system now in development, to crystal deformation measurement and earthquake prediction.

The Asia and Pacific Rim meeting of the Civil GPS Service Interface Committee (CGSIC)
will be held in conjunction with this symposium. The CGSIC is a forum
for all civil users and the GPS authorities. It is an activity of the
U.S. Coast Guard and the Department of Transportation.

Both events will take place in Odaiba, Tokyo’s newest district. Built on reclaimed land and linked by monorail to the mainland, it features the world’s largest Ferris wheel, space age buildings, electric cars and fantasy shopping malls.
