ICGPSRO Student Program 2023


UCAR’s COSMIC Program Office and TASA are jointly organizing a student program at the International Conference on GPS Radio Occultation (ICGPSRO), as part of the Taiwan International Assembly of Space Science, Technology, and Industry (TASTI). The conference will be held in Taipei, Taiwan during the week of 30 October – 3 November 2023. The detailed scientific program is currently in preparation. Similar to prior ICGPSRO meetings, the program will cover the broad themes of RO measurement processing, and scientific applications of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Radio Occultation (RO) and reflectometry for weather, climate, space weather, and related research. Attending the ICGPSRO conference provides opportunities to engage with experts in the GNSS field, present your own work, stay updated on the latest advancements in the field, and network with fellow students and professionals. With support from the National Science Foundation, COSMIC will sponsor up to eight US university students to attend and participate in the conference.

Student Program

The ICGPSRO student program provides an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to participate in ICGPSRO and show their own work in a presentation or poster. Through this experience participants will gain perspective on the current state of the GNSS related knowledge, to build connections with the international GNSS community, and to network with fellow students and professionals to exchange knowledge and experiences. The student program will also offer various networking events, including student-professional mixers, informal gatherings, and poster sessions. These activities will enable students to connect with their peers from around the world, share their own research or projects, and receive valuable feedback from both fellow students and experienced professionals. The student program also provides unique cultural experience. Taipei offers a rich cultural experience with its historic temples, bustling night markets, and diverse culinary scene.


Applicants must be currently enrolled in a US academic institution as either undergraduate or graduate students. Prospective participants should have an active interest or involvement in research related to the field of GNSS remote sensing and it scientific applications. Selected participants should plan give a presentation or poster at the conference discussing their own projects.

Students should submit a resume/CV, statement of interest, and transcript (unofficial is ok). We especially encourage student applications from groups that are historically underrepresented in the sciences.

Key dates are:

Application due: September 15, 2023

Acceptance notification: September 20, 2023

Selected participants will receive detailed program information shortly after acceptance. Travel and lodging arrangements for supported participants will be made on their behalf by end of September.


We gratefully acknowledge the support of the National Science Foundation for supporting US students to participate in the ICGPSRO.
