Announcing the transition of SPIE Remote Sensing to a Digital Forum

Plan to participate in SPIE Remote Sensing 2020

SPIE Remote Sensing is transitioning to a FREE Digital Forum to be held 21 - 25 September. The event remains the leading international conference for researchers, engineers and scientists involved in the latest developments in all aspects of earth observation, next generation satellites, atmospheric propagation, and imaging analytics, now available in an online format. 

Co-located with:
SPIE Space, Satellites + Sustainability (S3) and SPIE Security+Defence

Given the current global health situation, SPIE is committed to adhering to best practices to protect the health of our constituents. With the new online format you will still be able to present your paper and connect with your community.

Check back often in the weeks ahead as we continue to update the programme content.
