    Chair Invitation

    Plan Now to Attend!

    It is our pleasure to welcome your attendance at SPIE's 2007 International Symposium on Remote Sensing. An excellent technical programme has been prepared, focusing on recent advances in sensor technology, next generation satellites, sensing of the environment, atmospheric propagation, and signal and image processing.

    This year's event will be held in Florence, Italy, and is SPIE's 14th Remote Sensing Europe meeting. Previous symposia were held at various locations throughout Europe, including Rome, London, Paris, Sicily, Toulouse, Barcelona, Crete, Grand Canary, Bruges, and Stockholm.

    Nearly 600 presentations prove again that this event is recognized as an important forum for science, government, and industry to access and share information on remote sensing. The event's focus is especially on the research aspects of remote sensing, with a concentration on European and international science.

    The symposium features ten conferences, each including oral and poster presentations, as well as plenary presentations. A Welcome Reception will provide an opportunity to exchange ideas and network in a more personal way. The 14 th SPIE Symposium on Remote Sensing will be co-located with the fourth SPIE European Symposium on Optics/Photonics in Defense + Security, and will provide an excellent opportunity to explore new opportunities to collaborate with new partners from other fields of activity.

    The program promises an exciting week, with excellent science in a setting conducive to international interchange, and we would be pleased to have your participation.

    Finally, don't miss this opportunity of visiting the beautiful country of Italy and seeing one of her crown jewels, the historic city of Florence, capital of the arts, and the capital of the Italian region of Tuscany.
