Welcome to Hong Kong
Dear Participants of the ISGNSS 2017 Symposium,
he 2017 International Symposium on GNSS will be held from 10-13 December 2017 at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU), Hong Kong, P. R. China. This is Hong Kong’s second time to host this ISGNSS Symposium after the first one in 2005.
s in the past, this annual ISGNSS will be an excellent platform for participants from academia and industry to share, exchange, discuss and promote new ideas, innovations and latest developments in the Global Navigation Satellite Systems technologies and applications.
NSS is probably one of the most prevailing technologies today that has a profound impact on the advancement of modern society. From spacecraft to airplane, to land vehicle and ocean vessel, from positioning and navigation, to precise timing to atmospheric remote sensing inversion, from scientists and engineers to farmers and fishers, to smartphone users, GNSS have found countless applications for billions of users. GNSS have exactly answered two “W” out of 5W1H questions for us: where and when. Never is there any other single technology that can achieve this so easily and so precisely.
017 and Hong Kong are the precise time and location for the ISGNSS 2017 Symposium. 2017 marks the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and the 80th anniversary of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU). Hong Kong, an Asian city embracing a good mixture of oriental and western culture, is one of the most dynamic cities in the world.
very year, around 60 million tourists (more than 8 times of Hong Kong population 7.3 million) visit Hong Kong from different places of the world, which is an excellent reason for you not to miss the ISGNSS 2017 Symposium.
I look forward to seeing you at Hong Kong and wish you have a good stay at Hong Kong, like 60 million others.
Thank you very much
