2022 PNT Symposium

Main content start

Our 16th annual PNT Symposium was held in person on Wednesday, October 12th and Thursday, October 13th. This year, we returned to our usual in-person presentations in the Kavli Auditorium at the SLAC National Laboratory above the Stanford University campus. We also live-streamed the presentations via Zoom and video for those participants who could not or did not wish to attend in person.

2022 Symposium Agenda, Speakers and Banquet Dinner

This year's symposium was scheduled for two days from 8:00 AM to 5:00PM, with a banquet dinner and talk entitled "Terra isn't Firma" by Sanford Emeritus Professor, Brad Parkinson, on Thursday night, October 13th at the Stanford Faculty Club. As in past PNT symposia, the first day featured student presentations, and the second day featured invited presentations.

Download the 2022 PNT Symposium Information Packet (link below) to view the symposium agenda.

The tables below display the invited speaker presentations from both days of the 2022 PNT Symposium. In both tables, the presentations are listed alphabetically by the presenter's last name.

While all of the presentations were recorded on both days of the 2021 webinar symposium, we have only received permission from some of the speakers to display their video presentation and/or a PDF file of their presentation slides.
