Preliminary Call for Papers and Sessions

The XXXIII General Assembly and Scientific Symposium (GASS) of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI, will take place in Rome, Italy from August 29 to September 5, 2020. The scientific programme will be organized around the ten URSI Commissions (see below) and will comprise oral sessions, poster sessions, plenary and public lectures, and tutorials, with both invited and contributed papers. In addition, there will be workshops, short courses, special programmes for young scientists, a student paper competition, programmes for accompanying persons, and an industrial exhibition. More than 1,500 scientists from more than 50 countries are expected to participate.

Scientists and researchers are invited to submit papers as well as proposals for sessions (that may include both invited and contributed papers), workshops and short courses. Detailed information will be posted on the GASS 2020 web site.
Any topic concerning the scientific domains of URSI Commissions is potentially acceptable. Session/ workshop/short-course proposals covering multidisciplinary aspects will be assigned to several Commissions.

Workshops are expected to promote interactive exchanges, with enhanced organization flexibility.
