Submission acceptance begins: 01 December 2016
Submission deadline through: 01 June 2017

Editor: Phil Wilkinson
Organizers: Patricia Doherty, Boston College
Bruno Nava, The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics
Andrzej Krankowski, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn

This special issue will be focused on the ionospheric effects on radio propagation. It will focus on all aspects of satellite signals observed on the ground and by receivers on-board satellites, in particular Ionospheric Electron Content and Scintillation effects. In this context, the submission of papers on recent studies and techniques on ionospheric tomography, occultation techniques, assimilation models, distributed arrays of ionospheric measurements, space weather activities and satellite based navigation and communication systems, among others, are encouraged. Manuscripts should be submitted through the GEMS Web site for Radio Science.

Call for Papers for “URSI General Assembly and Scientific Symposium (2017).”

Submission acceptance begins: 15 November 2016
Submission deadline through: 01 May 2018

Editor: Phil Wilkinson
Organizer: Phil Wilkinson, IPS Radio and Space Services

The 32nd General Assembly and Scientific Symposium (GASS) of the International Union of Radio Science (Union Radio Scientifique Internationale: URSI) will be in Montréal, August 2017. The GASS will have a scientific program organized around the ten Commissions of URSI.  The main objective of the GASS is to review current trends in radio research, present new discoveries and make plans for future research work.  Papers will be presented on all aspects of radio science including electromagnetic fields, antennas, radiocommunications, radio astronomy, remote sensing, and both ionised and non-ionised propagation. We are encouraging submission prior to, or in parallel with, the meeting.

Manuscripts should be submitted through the GEMS Web site for Radio Science.
