GNSS: Status, Applications and Future in South East Asia

Monday, 6th October 2014

Posts and Telecommunications Institute of Technology (PTIT)

Ho Chi Minh City campus

11 Nguyen Dinh Chieu, Dakao Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City.

Satellite navigation is nowadays a pervasive technology with a relevant impact in many fields: from transport and logistics to security and meteorology. The workshop is a good opportunity to meet experts from Vietnam and the European Union to discuss about this technology and the applications that are going to change our daily life. The workshop is intended for technicians, researchers and students. The first part of the workshop will provide the audience with an introduction on the Global Navigation Satellite Systems – GNSS, with a focus on the European system Galileo. The second part will be dedicated to the most important and promising GNSS applications: from road and transportations to wheatear forecast and meteorology. The focus will be on South East Asia, where all the satellite navigation systems are available: the so called Multi-GNSS.

The workshop is organized by Growing NAVIS, a European funded project, in collaboration with the Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Institute of Technologyand the NAVIS Centre.

If you are interested to present you activity in the field of satellite navigation, you can propose a presentation sending an e-mail with the subject of your presentation and a short abstract at the following address: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Participation in the workshop is free. You are kindly requested to register for the workshop no later than September 15th 2014. Register here.

NAVIS: The NAVIS Collaboration Centre is located in the premises of Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST), Vietnam. The Centre aims to cover the entire South-East Asian region. Its mission is to act as linking entity between Europe and South East Asia in the field of GNSS. NAVIS aims to ease cross-links between EU and South-East Asia actors to promote European Global Navigation Satellite System.

G-NAVIS: Growing NAVIS is a FP7 project funded by the European Union/European GNSS Agency. It aims to exploit the potential of the NAVIS centre. G-NAVIS supports the growth of the NAVIS Collaboration Centre enhancing its technical and research capabilities and extending its links in South East Asia and Europe for a better cooperation with Europe, European institutions and possibly European companies.

Posts and telecommunications Institute of Technology (PTIT) - an university of Vietnam Ministry of Information and Communication - was established in 1997 and has been recognized as one of the best universities in Vietnam. Its goal is to supply enterprises competent and qualified human resources in the field of Information-Communication Technology. PTIT is aimed to become a ranking multi-disciplinary sector university in the region and the world, an R&D center integrated with the education and science community, a reliable partner for cooperation and investment committed to the modernization and industrialization of Vietnam.
