Plan to Participate

We cordially invite you to participate in the 2017 SPIE Remote Sensing symposium.  Over the past 23 years SPIE Remote Sensing has become the largest and most prestigious annual international meeting on this subject in Europe.

Each year comprehensive coverage of scientific topics are presented, such as, remote sensing applications, sensors, systems, and satellite platforms.  With more than 40 countries represented at every meeting, the event provides a unique opportunity for scientists, engineers, programme managers and policy makers from around the world to learn about the trends, recent developments and achievements in the area of remote sensing. Attendees exchange ideas, as well as present and discuss the most recent developments and applications.

The 2017 symposium in Warsaw, Poland, will be the 24th in this series and follows last year’s successful symposium in Edinburgh, United Kingdom. This year we offer eleven conferences covering the most exciting and prosperous areas in the field of remote sensing:

Remote Sensing for Agriculture, Ecosystems, and Hydrology
Remote Sensing of the Ocean, Sea Ice, Coastal Waters, and Large Water Regions
Sensors, Systems, and Next-generation Satellites
Remote Sensing of Clouds and the Atmosphere
Optics in Atmospheric Propagation and Adaptive Systems
Active and Passive Microwave Remote Sensing for Environmental Monitoring
Image and Signal Processing for Remote Sensing
Remote Sensing for Environmental Monitoring, GIS Applications, and Geology
Lidar Technologies, Techniques, and Measurements for Atmospheric Remote Sensing
High-Performance Computing in Geoscience and Remote Sensing
Remote Sensing Technologies and Applications in Urban Environments

The conferences are designed to meet the scientific, technical, and particularly the business needs of the remote sensing community. Each conference will include oral and poster presentations with top researchers and company representatives as invited speakers.  

In addition, the conferences include information that is up to date and thus represents one of the finest training opportunities and sessions in the world for practical remote sensing as well as research training. The 2017 symposium will pursue encouraging special sessions and training related talks addressing sensor calibrations and related accuracy assessments in all of the above conferences. Additionally, a Plenary Session will be organized on the public use of remote sensing networks with mobile devices for forecasting: terrestrial and space weather; atmospheric conditions, climate, air quality, natural disasters as well as agricultural and industrial activity.

The 24th SPIE Remote Sensing symposium will be co-located with the 14th SPIE Security+Defence. Explore new opportunities to collaborate with partners from other fields of activity. Showcase your multidisciplinary research and applications in this major international forum.

The Organising Committee of SPIE Remote Sensing invites you to submit papers for presentation and for publication in this historically important and very exciting meeting. Help to make it a symposium of the highest quality. We look forward to seeing you in the historical city of Warsaw.
