Meeting Announcement

SIRGAS Symposium 2022

The next SIRGAS Symposium will be held in the city of Santiago de Chile, November 7-9, 2022, thanks to the invitation offered by the Instituto Geográfico Militar (IGM) of Chile, in celebration of its 100th anniversary. The geodetic community of the Americas and the Caribbean will gather during this event to formulate new projects and exchange experiences and progress related to the implementation, maintenance and use of the geodetic reference frame and infrastructure of the region.

In addition, the Vertical Reference System Workshop will take place the week before the Symposium, November 2-4 2022, which will cover topics related to the unification of the vertical reference in the SIRGAS member states, as well as the guidelines and actions planned for the materialization of the IHRS (International Height Reference System).

This edition of the SIRGAS Symposium and the Vertical Reference System Workshop is jointly organized with the Military Geographic Institute of Chile, and has the support of the Pan-American Institute of Geography and History (PAIGH) and the International Association of Geodesy (IAG).

The symposium has been planned as an in-person meeting at the facilities of the Military Geographic Institute of Chile. It will also be broadcast through the @SirgasAmericas YouTube channel including simultaneous English and Spanish translation. 

Although the SIRGAS Symposia are mainly attended by National Representatives, members of Working Groups and projects, these events are open to the entire international geodetic community and therefore we invite:

  • Regional organizations involved in the dissemination of geospatial information and Earth observations;
  • National institutions responsible for geodetic references definition;
  • Public and private agencies that use geodetic and geophysical information;
  • Universities and research centers focused on geodesy and geophysics; and
  • Researchers, professionals, technicians, and students whose activities and research are related to the SIRGAS goals.
