Researcher Gan Weijun of our institute attended the 26th Academic Conference of International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG) in Prague, the capital of Czech Republic from June 22 to 27, 2015. During the meeting, Gan Weijun made a speech titled “Vertical velocity field of present-day crustal motion of the Chinese Mainland inferred from GPS measurements”. 

This conference had nearly 300 disciplinary topics. More than 4,200 scientists from more than 90 countries and regions attended the conference, including more than 200 scientists from Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. Nearly 30 people from CEA attended the conference. It is a gigantic scientific pageant. During the meeting, there were two highlights relevant with Chinese scientists. Firstly, IUGG granted the title of Elected Fellows to Prof. Chen Xiaofei of the University of Science and Technology of China and Researcher Li Jianping of Institute of Atmosphere Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences for their outstanding contribution in the respective research fields. Secondly, Nobel prize winner in chemistry Professor Yuan Tseh Lee of Taiwan Academia Sinica made the first specially invited report of the conference titled “Transformation of Human Society for Sustainable Future”, which warned and called on from the perspective of geoscience that emerging countries in the world must change their current development modes overstressing high growth and high consumption and should turn to a longer-term direction of sustainable development.

During the meeting, Gan Weijun exchanged ideas with many familiar international counterparts (IGS and GGOS members) on the current operation and application status of Chinese crustal movement observation GPS network, as well as the latest progress of the Chinese Beidou satellite navigation system and its application effect in geodetic surveys, and made an appointment with Chris Rizos, the incumbent chairman of International Association of Geodesy (IAG) that he will visit our institute when he visits China next time.
