Dear Colleague:

It is a pleasure to invite you to take part in the APSG Workshop 2010 “Progress in Space Geodesy and Earth Environment Change”, to be held in our beautiful city of Shanghai, China on behalf of the Organizing Committee.
Shanghai is an international modernized metropolis, one of centers of economy, science and technology, information and culture in China. This fast changing city has retained colorful and harmonious mixture of traditional and modern Chinese civilizations. It has many wonderful cultural opportunities for you to discover and to enjoy.  Especially, you have an opportunity to visit the World Expo 2010 held in Shanghai during the Workshop.  The World Expo will provide a 5.28-square-kilometer area at the core of the city for exhibitions, events and forums on the Expo theme, “Better City, Better Life”.
The APSG Workshop will be held at the conference hall of Shanghai Astronomical Observatory (SHAO).  The SHAO was formally established in 1962 following the merger of the former Xujiahui (originally spelt Zi-Ka-Wei) and Sheshan (Zỏ-Sẻ) observatories, which were founded by the French Mission Catholique in 1872 and 1900 respectively. It is an institute of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). The observatory's main research activities fall into four divisions: astro-geodynamics, astrophysics, very long baseline interferometry (VLBI), and the technical laboratories.

1. Gravity, Time-Variable Gravity and Earth Rotation Dynamics
   Space-borne, absolute/superconducting gravimetry and their applications.
2. Crustal Dynamics and Earthquake
   Monitoring crustal movement and deformation by space techniques and earthquake monitoring.
3. Sea level change, water and ice mass variation and post-glacial rebound
   Results given by space techniques, comparison with models and terrestrial observations.
4. The Moon and Planetary Geodesy
   New results from CE-1、SELENE、Chandrayaan-1、LRO missions, and introductions about future missions
5. Gravity satellite projects
   Suggestions on new gravity satellite projects
Results w.r.t. Asia-Pacific Region are especially encouraged.
