Under the auspices of the European Group of Institutes of Navigation (EUGIN), the German Institute of Navigation (DGON) will organise The European Navigation Conference - GNSS 2005 in Munich, Germany, from 19 - 22 July 2005.

The conference will focus on the present status as well as on the future developments of navigation systems and services. Particular emphasis and attention will be directed to the development of Galileo and the status of the implementation of EGNOS. Thus, GNSS 2005 will provide the forum and platform to present state of the art technologies and innovations in the field of terrestrial and satellite navigation.

At the conference exhibition industry will present and illustrate new technologies in satellite navigation and related fields and services in support of air, land and maritime traffic.

Munich, the Capital of the State of Bavaria and one of the most attractive cities in Germany will serve as an excellent host for this important conference on satellite navigation systems. We therefore invite you very cordially to attend The European Navigation Conference GNSS 2005 in Munich. We are convinced that you will benefit from this excellent opportunity for the exchange of experiences and ideas.
