Abstract : The technical report focus on the program and on the major scientific achievements of the 6th Time Scale Algorithm Symposium and Tutorials. The development and testing of new tools adequate for the mathematical treatment of the time measurements is the core of the organized Symposium. The huge impact of the availability of the PFS (running continuously) is a key issue of time scale algorithms. The Kalman filter applied to the construction of national and international timescales has been discussed. A large part of the conference was dedicated to the algorithms used for data analysis. In time keeping area typical problems are data gaps, outliers, jumps or clock failure identification.
