Satellite Interference Reduction Group—Annual Workshop Scheduled For Singapore (Event)

[SatNews] The Satellite Interference Reduction Group (IRG) has announced that it will be hosting a free open session as part of its Annual Workshop, taking place at Raffles Hotel in Singapore from 19th – 20th June.

The free session, which takes place from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 19th, is open to the entire industry. However, places are limited, so please register using the link below. This will be followed by a cocktail reception at the famous Long Bar at Raffles, sponsored by SES and Intelsat.
The IRG Annual Workshop (formerly Conference) is a unique event, bringing together engineers to discuss the practicalities of mitigating interference. The workshop will provide an update on current and future RFI initiatives, feature a range of case studies and presentations, as well as offering plenty of opportunities for attendees to share their experiences and current RFI problems.  The Workshop attendees will discuss practical methods to resolve RFI problems and plan future industry initiatives. The Workshop will run alongside CommunicAsia, where IRG will also be hosting another in its series of Carrier ID tours.
“Every year, we try to take our Workshop to the region where we most need to focus our efforts,” commented Martin Coleman, Executive Director, the Satellite Interference Reduction Group. “Asia is relatively untapped by interference mitigation initiatives, therefore we feel it is important for us to take our message and support to the operators and users in that region.”
IRG is currently building the agenda for the Annual Workshop and welcomes topic and speaker suggestions.
