VIII Hotine Marussi Symposium - Objectives

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is both our privilege and pleasure to invite you to the VIII Hotine-Marussi Symposium, which will be held at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Italy on June 17-21, 2013, under the scientific coordination of the Intercommission Committee on Theory (ICCT) of the International Association of Geodesy (IAG).

The main goals of the Symposium are aligned with the objectives of the ICCT:

  • advances in theoretical geodesy
  • developments in geodetic modelling and data processing in the light of the recent advances of the geodetic observing systems
  • connections and contribution exchanges between geodesy and other Earth sciences

In particular, all the topics regarding the activities of the ICCT Study Groups are of interest and related presentations are strongly encouraged.

Further, also presentations concerning other topics related to the possible interaction and mutual benefits between geodetic theory and methodology and other initiatives/projects involving Earth sciences (for example the Group on Earth Observation) are welcome.

In this respect, it has also to be recalled that 2013 will be the special year for the Mathematics of Planet Earth
