APRSAF-16 WELCOME TO BANGKOK!
Following our latest message of hosting the APRSAF-16 in Thailand, GISTDA is pleased to welcome all prospective participants to Bangkok. The conference will take place during 26 ? 29 January, 2010 at the hotel Sofitel Centara Grand Bangkok. This five star hotel is located in an area easily accessible by public transportation.
The official theme of APRSAF-16 is “Space Applications: Contributions towards Human Safety and Security”. As usual, the conference comprises working groups and plenary sessions. The working groups include: Earth Observation (EO), Space Environment Utilization (SEU), Communication Satellite Applications (CSA), and Space Education and Awareness (SEA). Moreover, this is a good opportunity for participants since the conference will be held back-to-back with the 1st Global Navigation Satellite System ? GNSS Workshop, which will be organized on 25-26 January, 2010. It helps participants continue their interest in one trip. GISTDA and JAXA have collaborated closely to ensure optimal preparation of this important event.
Bangkok is a city with a wealth of cultural landmarks and attractions. Its’ shopping and entertainment venues have also gained renown. We hope the APRSAF-16 participants will enjoy staying in Bangkok.
