Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It is both our privilege and pleasure to invite you to the IX Hotine-Marussi Symposium, which will be held at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Italy on June 18-22, 2018, under the scientific coordination of the Intercommission Committee on Theory (ICCT) of the International Association of Geodesy (IAG).
All details about the symposium, its scientific programe and venue are available at the symposium website.
The main goals of the Symposium are aligned with the objectives of the ICCT:
- advances in theoretical geodesy
- developments in geodetic modelling and data processing in the light of the recent advances of the geodetic observing systems
- connections and contribution exchanges between geodesy and other Earth sciences
In particular, all the topics regarding the activities of the ICCT Study Groups are of interest and related papers are strongly encouraged.
Further, also papers concerning other topics related to the possible interaction and mutual benefits between geodetic theory and methodology and other initiatives/projects involving Earth sciences (for example the Group on Earth Observation) are welcome.
The Symposium will be held at the Faculty of Engineering of the Sapienza University of Rome, Italy, in the ancient chiostro of the Basilica of S. Pietro in Vincoli, where the worldwide known Michelangelo's statue Moses is placed. The Symposium location is downtown Rome, at walking distance from the Colosseo, Fori Imperiali and many other famous archaeological sites and monuments.
Please, mind that June is a high-season tourist period in Rome, so that an early registration and accomodation booking is highly recommended.

The scientific programme will be complemented with a social one, including a tour in Rome and a social dinner. Moreover, a special session at the Accademia dei Lincei, the oldest scientific academy in the world established in 1603 by Federico Cesi, will be held on 19 June 2018. Its programme will consist of 6 invited talks focused on interactions of geodesy and
- solid Earth system structure from space
We look forward to welcome you in Rome!
