    The Science of Time 2016
    Time in Astronomy & Society, Past, Present and Future
    Editors: Elisa Felicitas Arias, Ludwig Combrinck, Pavel Gabor, Catherine
    Hohenkerk, P. Kenneth Seidelmann
    Conference proceedings:
    "In this symposium speakers took a closer look at time in astronomy,
    other sciences, cultures, and business as a defining element of modern
    civilization. The symposium aimed to set the stage for future
    timekeeping standards, infrastructure, and engineering best practices
    for astronomers and the broader society. At the same time the program
    was cognizant of the rich history from Harrison's chronometer to today's
    atomic clocks and pulsar observations. The theoreticians and engineers
    of time were brought together with the educators and historians of
    science, enriching the understanding of time among both experts and the
