There will be three sessions at EVGA2017:
Session 1: Technology
This session focuses on the ongoing VLBI technology development, in particular for the upcoming VGOS network. Contributions concerning technical development like e.g. feed horns, backends, recording systems, data transfer, correlation, automation are encouraged.
Session 2: Observations
This session covers recent activities and future plans at VLBI stations, networks, correlators and data centres. Contributions concerning e.g. the improvement of VLBI observations, installation of VGOS equipment, local tie vector determination, VLBI observations of satellite signals, but also scheduling and simulation, are encouraged.
Session 3: Analysis
This session aims at contributions on the analysis of VLBI data, both for geodesy and astrometry, and the derived results. Contributions concerning e.g. earth rotation, the terrestrial reference frame, the celestial reference frame, astrophysical and geophysical models, are encouraged.Abstract submission:
