IAG Scientific Assembly 2021

The IAG Scientific Assembly will be held in Beijing on June 28–July 2, 2021. The Scientific Assembly is a quadrennial event, in the middle of the periods of the IAG General Assembly. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Assembly will be organized as a hybrid meeting.

The LOC has made a reservation of a number of conference rooms, but due to current situation with travel restrictions, the main way for the foreign scientists to participate will be the virtual meeting. We will make our best to offer the full programme and experience of the Scientific Assembly to everyone, regardless of the way they will participate. The Assembly papers will be published in the renowned peer-reviewed book series, International Association of Geodesy Symposia. All papers will be open access, and publishing will be free of charge.

There will be eight Symposia, with topics covering the activities of IAG Commissions, Services, Inter-Commission Committees and a timely topic on Geohazards.

The official web site of the Assembly, www.iag2021.com, will be available by March with all details and instructions of deadlines, schedule, programme, abstract submission and registration. Please follow also the IAG web site https://www.iag-aig.org/ for news and latest information. In case of questions, please contact the IAG Secretary General IAG.OFFICE@nls.fi or the LOC, the address of which will be given on the Assembly web site. The first circular with more details will be sent at the time the web site is opened and it will be posted also on the IAG web site.
