    UTC: its history & future
    From: Paul Hirose
    Date: 2005 Jun 2, 23:51 -0700

    The papers presented at the 2003 "Special Colloquium on the Future of
    the UTC Time Scale" are online in PDF:

    The papers look interesting, but I haven't had time to do more than skim
    the first one, which seems to be an overview of the conference
    objectives and conclusions. Bottom line:
    
    Celestial navigation requirement for UT1-UTC appears significantly reduced.
    
    Most apparent impact of a new time system: software.
    
    Transition to alternative timescale considered difficult. UTC tied to
    current telecommunication and civil infrastructure.
    
    Modification or change of generally available and used system would
    require substantial changes.
