RGS-IBG Annual International Conference 2017

Transport plays a key role in shaping space and has long been recognised as a maker and breaker of cities (Clark 1958; Knowles 2006). Securing private and public sector investment in mass transit systems, green transport modes and smart city infrastructure can be problematic, but is central to developing sustainable cities (Cervero and Sullivan 2011).
Transit Oriented Development (TOD) is the process of focussing the development of housing, employment, activity sites and public services around existing or new rail or bus rapid transit stations or stops (Knowles 2012; Knowles and Ferbrache 2016). TOD is designed to create a relatively high density, compact and mixed urban form. TOD is now a very important part of a broader 'smart growth' approach to urban development and urban regeneration in many countries.

Abstracts of 250-300 words indicating title, author(s) and affiliation(s) should be sent by 6 February 2017 to r.d.knowles-at-salford.ac.uk and fiona.ferbrache-at-keble.ox.ac.uk.

International Symposium on Precision Approach and Performance Based Navigation

Growth of air traffic density and new emerging technologies require air navigation modernization and increased airspace efficiency.
Most demanding is the last phase of flight where aircraft operate close to the ground on approach and landing.
Here, guidance needs to be precise enough to guarantee safety while minimizing environmental impact especially with respect to noise.

There will also be an exhibition of providers' products and services.

Here you will find the details on abstract submission.

ION ITM and PTTI 2018 - ION Technical Meeting (ITM) and Precise Time and Time Interval (PTTI) Systems and Applications Meeting

Abstracts are now being accepted, closing date for abstracts is 10 October 2017

The two events ITM and PTTI are co-located and one registration fee covers both. Entry is for two technical events and a commercial exhibit.
ITM is the ION'ís winter meeting with peer-reviewed technical papers related to positioning, navigation and timing and includes the ION Fellows' and Annual Awards presentations.
PTTI is the annual technical conference designed to disseminate and coordinate PTTI information at the user level; to review present and future PTTI requirements; to inform government and industry engineers, technicians and managers of precise time and frequency technology and its problems; and to provide an opportunity for an active exchange of new technology associated with PTTI.
The Joint ITM / PTTI Plenary Session will hear Akbar Sultan, Deputy Director, Airspace Operations and Safety Program at NASA deliver the keynote speech: Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Traffic Management.
