Jeanne Sauber (Spring Program Committee Geodesy Chair of AGU)
Veronique Dehant (President-elect of AGU Geodesy Section until May 2002,   
                  President of AGU Geodesy Section in May 2002)
Anny Cazenave (President of EGS Geodesy Section) 
Call for Special Sessions and Conveners for the Joint EGS-AGU-EUG Spring 
meeting of 06-11 April 2003 in Nice, France.

The upcoming joint EGS-AGU-EUG meeting for the Spring of 2003
is a unique opportunity to build on the strenths of each group
and to meet and share ideas.  This call combines the traditional
AGU call for special sessions with the EGS approach of updating 
the previous-year skeletal program. We have tried to cover the "hot topics"
and the topics which are presently under investigation in the core program
listed below. We invite you to join these efforts 
by proposing a new idea for a session as well as suggest changes to the 
skeletal program. This is a great opportunity to highlight the exciting
science contribution geodesy is making to a broad range of disciplines
and at the same time give geodesists a chance to discuss the advancement of
geodetic science.   To make this first-time joint meeting 
successful, we need your help to create an exciting program. 
So, please send us your ideas and special session proposals, or volunteer to
be a convenor for the core program, (preferrably) before the end of March 2002.
