The NGS Real Time GNSS Network Symposium scheduled to be held in Memphis, Tenn., on July 16-17, 2012, has been canceled, despite a high level of interest. A statement issued by the agency noted that the cancellation was due to a government-wide memo issued by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in response to Congressional directives that put all conference procurements on hold following the widely publicized GSA conference abuses. The memo promised new guidance for conference procurement and travel, which had not yet arrived. “We have passed the point where the conference hotel could hold our rooms and facilities in anticipation of a contract,” the statement said.

NGS said it hopes to be able to reschedule the event for the fall in Memphis.
