Dear Colleagues,

The URSI General Assembly and Scientific Symposium will be held from 19-26
August in Montreal, Canada. The Commission G (Ionospheric Radio and
Propagation) programme is now open for papers, with a closing date of
*30 January
2017*. Full details are at http://www.ursi2017.org .

We invite you to submit an abstract to our session *GNSS Applications in
Radio Science*:

*Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) such as the Global Positioning
System (GPS), Galileo, and Beidou rely on L band trans-ionospheric radio
signals for positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT).  Such signals are
susceptible to ionospheric propagation effects (i.e. phase advance, group
delay) that can  alter the received signal properties at the receiver.
Thus, the ionosphere can affect PNT services.  Conversely, the variations
in signal properties can be used to probe the ionosphere.  *

*This session welcomes papers on: ionospheric science in order to improve
future GNSS services; on ionospheric effects on current GNSS services; and
on the use of GNSS signals of opportunity for ionospheric remote sensing.
Of particular interest are papers on the new GNSS signals that are now
available (i.e. Galileo E5a/E5b and GPS L5).*

The submission site is at


The abstract deadline is approaching quickly, so we encourage you to submit
your papers as soon as possible.

Other Commission G sessions and joint sessions are listed at the end of
this email. Please feel free to circulate this email to any of your
colleagues who may be interested.
