December 30, 2004: 2004 CPGPS Highlights and Distinguished Service Awards

CPGPS 2004 president Dr Jinling Wang presents 2004 CPGPS Highlights and Distinguished Service Awards. Here is his message to all members:

Dear All,

As we approaching the New Year 2005 - just hours ahead here in Sydney, I would like to briefly highlight our major activities in 2004 and recognize the significant contributions from our members.

A) Major Activities in 2004

1) New design and development for the CPGPS website. Our website has been an important icon for our Association. The new website has impressed many visitors and gained a good publicity for CPGPS. In addition, the new website has a good structure, which is the foundation for further developments to accommodate a variety of needs in the future.

2) 2004 CPGPS Student Paper Competition. As part of our efforts to attract more students to our association and help them in their career development, we organized the first student paper competition, which was well participated and achieved its goals - a great su ccess!

3) The First 'Young Scientist Forum' The idea for organizing the Young Scientist Forum on Satellite positionin g and navigation in Beijing was initialized during the early days of our CP GPS. In July 2004, we eventually made that idea a reality. The Forum attracted around 50 participants and provided an excellent opportunity for our me mbers to establish/enhance their professional connections.

4) CPGPS gatherings at major international conferences on GPS/GNSS in Rot terdam, Long Beach and Sydney. Strategic planning for our CPGPS was one of the topics discussed at these occasions, and the draft strategic plan was prepared.

5) Four new cooperate members (Centrality Communication Inc., NavCom Tech nology Inc., SZIntech, Televigation) joined CPGPS in 2004.

6) CPGPS sponsored the 2004 International Symposium on GPS/GNSS held in S ydney. Almost all the papers presented at the symposium have been submitted to our CPGPS journal (special issues are under preparation for publication in both electronic and hard copies).

B) Distinguished Service Awards in 2004

On behalf of the Board of Directors, I have the pleasure to announce the 2004 CPGPS Distinguished Service Awards to:

Dr Zhizhao Liu, for his outstanding contribution to CPGPS activities;
Dr Yamin Dang, for his outstanding contribution to the organization of th e first 'Young Scientist Forum';
Dr Detang Zhong, for his outstanding contribution to the CPGPS website development.

Let's congratulate them for the achievements! (Each of them will receive a plague for the award). I would also take this opportunity to thank you all for the support and trust. With the collective efforts from all the members, our Association has been in the good shape. I believe that, under the leadership of our new pr esident Dr Wu Chen and his team, our CPGPS will move forward with more fruitful activities and achievements in 2005! With my best wishes to you all for a safe, happy and prosperous New Year!

Jinling Wang
