Frontiers of Geodetic Science (previously Geodätische Woche) will be held Oktober 19 and 20, 2022 as part of the INTERGEO conference in presence in Essen. The Frontiers of Geodetic Scienceprovides a forum for discussion of current scientific developments and applications in geodesy. In particular, all employees of university and research institutes in the field of geodesy are addressed, but also representatives of neighboring disciplines and users. The five subject areas listed below are intended for information and the exchange of ideas. In particular, all young scientists are encouraged to submit contributions to the Frontiers of Geodetic Science 2022.

FROGS 2022 will be held as a face-to-face meeting; Hybrid presentations / streaming are currently not planned.

The detailed program and the breakdown of the sessions on October 19th and 20th can be viewed on the website of the INTERGEO CONFERENCE 2022 (Filter "Saal Brüssel").


submission of contributions, registration, fees

You can apply for a contribution to the conference (only presentation, no poster) via the form for abstracts until 20th of July 2022. Presentation will be accepted in german and english.

Authors will be informed about their accepted contributions by early August 2022. With the confirmation of acceptance of the contribution, the authors will receive a time-limited (01.08.-31.08.2022) voucher code, which is specially set up for the participants of the Frontiers of Geodetic Science 2022. This voucher code must be redeemed in the ticket shop for the INTERGEO Conference (https://www.messe-ticket.de/HINTE/INTERGEOCONFERENCE2022). The presenter must therefore register himself. For registrations made after August 31, 2022, the regular registration conditions and tariffs are applied. The voucher codes are then no longer valid.

Co-authors and convenors are also requested to register via the INTERGEO ticket shop by 31st of August 2022.

With the ticket for the Frontiers of Geodetic Science 2022, the participants acquire the same services that an INTERGEO conference participant receives.

Participants who are also members of the DVW pay €150 (corresponds to the tariff for DVW members in training).

Participants who are not members of the DVW pay €250.



travel grants

Presenters in training (e.g. students) can apply for a travel grant. Depending on the number of applicants and the training status, individual costs can be covered by the DVW. This includes costs for travel to and from the event (at maximum the special event ticket of the DB for INTERGEO, see https://www.veranstaltungsticket-bahn.de/onepager.xhtml?event=2832) and for the conference costs the tickets for DVW members (150 €). In addition, hotel costs can be partially covered.

Please send the completed form (download the form here) as well as the corresponding receipts and invoices to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by 03.11.2022. Afterwards, a decision will be made about the amount of the travel grant.



Organizer is the AK7 "Experimentelle, Angewandte und Theoretische Geodäsie" of the DVW. The local organisation will be done by the Institute of Geodesy and Geoinformation (Universität Bonn).
