Announcement of the VieVS days 2019

This year you can get to know the Vienna VLBI and Satellite Software during the VieVS days, which will be held at TU Wien from October 15-17, 2019.

:!: The VieVS days replace the event formerly called VieVS User Workshop.

On the first day we will introduce participants to basic and advanced analysis of geodetic VLBI sessions using VieVS-VLBI, while the second day will be devoted to scheduling and simulation. Matthias Schartner will demonstrate how to generate geodetic and astrometric schedules with VieSched++. For instance, he will show how to optimize Intensive and global 24h sessions, as well as create astrometric schedules. Furthermore, he will explain how to generate large scale Monte-Carlo simulations using the VieSched++ multi-scheduling tool together with simulations from VieVS-VLBI.

The program for October 17th is open for special topics according to participant's interests or presentations of VieVS users.

Participation in the event is free of charge, please register via e-mail to The registration e-mail should contain the following information:

  • Name and affiliation
  • Do you plan to attend single or all days?
  • Do you have the option to bring your own notebook with the most recent version of VieVS installed (recommended)
  • What is your main interest: Analysis, Scheduling, …?
  • Do you have special topics or a contribution for the “open session”?

:-) We are looking forward to seeing you in Vienna!

New VieVS 3.0 Release

The new VieVS release (version 3.0) is available from now on (2017-06-12) ! VieVS 3.0 provides new analysis options and an improved usability. Please mind that VieVS now stands for Vienna VLBI and Satellite Software. This is due to the recent additions in terms of VLBI observations to satellites and upcoming activities in the field of Satellite Laser Ranging. Please find more information on our VieVS 3.0 release page.

We also have a new VieVS logo which is available in the Publications Section.

:!: Please note: with the new software release we will change the way in which we provide the software to external users. VieVS is available via SFTP on a new server. SSH keys have to be used to log onto this machine in order to download the VieVS 3.0 program code and all the data required for analysis. A step-by-step description on how to access the server using SSH keys can be found here.

Seventh VieVS User Workshop 2016

The seventh VieVS Users Workshop was held from 14th to 15th of September 2016 at the Technische Universität Wien in Vienna. Thanks to all participants! The lecture material, etc., is provided on our workshop page.
