It is our great pleasure and honor to extend to you our warmest welcome and invite you to the 2019 URSI Asia-Pacific Radio Science Conference (AP-RASC 2019) to be held in New Delhi, India from 09 – 15 March, 2019.

AP-RASC is a triennial event that brings together radio science specialists from all over the world, especially from the Asia Pacific region, covering all aspects of radio science across URSI’s ten commissions. This includes aspect of radio science related to metrology, radio propagation and communications and signal processing, electronics, photonics, electromagnetic interference, remote sensing, waves in plasma, radio astronomy and applications in biology and medicine. The main objective of the Conference is to review current trends in research, present new discoveries and make plans for future research work or for specific projects, especially where it seems desirable to arrange for cooperation on an international scale. The AP-RASC 2019 features committee meetings, technical sessions, workshops, general lectures as well as an exhibition of products related to radio science. An equally important objective is also to encourage scientific exchange and fellowship amongst industry colleagues and professionals globally. This conference will be an occasion for delegates to make new acquaintances and strengthen existing friendships

URSI conferences place great emphasis on the encouragement and motivation to be given to young scientists and graduate students. For this purpose there are a number of Young Scientist Awards (YSA) and Student Paper Competition (SPC) awards. The details of these will follow the same guidelines as in the URSI main website.

The scientific program shall provide an opportunity for delegates to exchange new ideas and information on many important issues in radio science and related aspects. The program shall include high-standard general lectures and keynote lectures given by outstanding scholars invited both from academia and industry. The technical exhibitions shall also be the other highlight of the conference providing the delegates exposure to the latest innovations in radio science and related industries.

AP-RASC 2019 will present an opportunity for delegates from other parts of the world to explore the rich culture, and diverse history, geography and culinary delights in India. India is not only one of the world’s oldest civilizations, it is also the world’s largest democracy, and has made stupendous progress among developing nations. India’s impressive variety of history and culture, from the ancient Gangetic Kingdoms to the present state, harmoniously blend to form a unique atmosphere of scenic sights

The conference venue is the India Habitat Centre, an island of architectural excellence in the busy metropolis of India’s capital, New Delhi, and an ideal location for conducting business. New Delhi, the capital city of India is one of the fastest growing cities in the world and is a blend of tradition and modernity, where ancient monuments co-exist with ultramodern high rise buildings and commercial plazas. Weather wise, the month of March is very pleasant, with the temperatures in the range of 20-25˚C. The chances of rainfall are close to zero.
