Frontiers of Geodetic Science (previously Geodätische Woche) will be held September 21-23, 2021, exclusively in digital format. The Frontiers of Geodetic Science is a forum for discussion of recent scientific developments and applications in geodesy. Target group of this platform are particularly scientifc staff of labs and universities from all areas in geodesy as well as representatives from neighbour disciplines and users. Listed below are five topics designated for exchange of ideas and information. Contributions of young scientist are most welcome and will be highly appreciated!

Due to the pandemic, the Frontiers of Geodetic Science 2021 will be held in a exclusively digital format and thus, exceptionally, not as a conference part of INTERGEO Live + Digital.
