Ever-improving frequency standards and the technological growth of our civilization is generating and sustaining a need for more precise, accurate, robust, and secure time and frequency transfer than currently available locally, globally, and extra-terrestrially. Improvements to existing operational technologies such as GNSS, two way satellite time and frequency transfer, NTP, and PTP can help solve the problem, as can development of newer technologies involving optical fibers, optical transmissions from ground or space, VLBI observations of radio sources, and differential observations of pulsars and x-ray sources. Papers are solicited in all these fields, as well as any other areas that involve time and frequency transfer.
