2015 ILRS Technical Workshop
Network Performance and Future Expectations for ILRS Support of GNSS,
and Space Debris Tracking
October 26 – 30, 2015
Periodically the ILRS conducts Technical Workshops to focus on a few
timely topics that impact the quality of our data products and our perations.
These workshops are held in intervening years between the full International
Workshops on Laser Ranging and are intended to provide time to articulate
the issues carefully, allow for careful discussion and formulate a path
The 2015 ILRS Technical Workshop, sponsored by the Italian Space Agency
(ASI) and the ILRS, will be held in Matera, Italy, October 26 –
30 to address:
- Network performance on GNSS and present and future user expectations,
- Present performance and future expectations for time transfer, and
- Present performance and future expectations for space debris tracking.
Guidelines for the Workshop
Each session should:
- Stimulate discussions and information exchange;
- Start with defined questions to be addressed and close with recommended
resolutions and a path forward;
- Start off with an overview talk setting the framework for the topic
and the process to be used in the session;
- Actively encourage and recruit participants to bring short comments
(few charts) to address the session issues;
- Give a summary of its session meeting with its issues, outcomes,
recommendations for steps forward at the final Workshop Session and
provide a 1-2 page write up for the proceedings.
Posters will be allowed, but they must refer to one of the session topics
and be approved by the chair of that session. Material from the posters
may be presented in the session if appropriate.
Time will be allocated for the ILRS Governing Board and Working Group
meetings. A trip is also planned to the Matera site during the week.
