Apply To Participate In The United Nations/Mongolia Workshop on Applications of Global Navigation Satellite Systems


The availability of global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) and other space-based systems is creating an unprecedented opportunity, bringing benefits in the areas of emergency management, marine, and land monitoring or fleet control to name a few. Due to this availability, the development of integrated applications is an area in rapid expansion. To address a wide array of GNSS applications for socio-economic benefits and to focus on initiating pilot projects and strengthening the networking of GNSS-related institutions in the region,  a five-day Workshop will be held in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, from 13 to 17 April 2020.

The Workshop programme will include plenary sessions stated below and also sufficient time for discussions among participants to identify the priority areas, where pilot projects should be launched and examine possible partnerships that could be established. Cooperative efforts and international partnerships for capacity-building, training, and research will be discussed.

The main objective of the Workshop is to focus on the importance and need of cooperation to apply GNSS solutions through the exchange of information and the scaling up of capacities among countries in the region.

Thematic Sessions 

  • Session 1: Current and planned GNSS and satellite-based augmentation systems
  • Session 2: GNSS-based applications focusing on, but not limited to
  • Session 3: GNSS spectrum protection and interference detection and mitigation
  • Session 4: GNSS and space/atmospheric weather monitoring
  • Session 5: GNSS reference frames/systems and reference station networks
  • Session 6: Capacity building, training, and education in the field of GNSS

Participation requirements
Participants should be in senior managerial or decision-making responsibility at governmental agencies, national and regional institutions, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations or industry. Equally qualified female applicants are particularly encouraged.
