SPIE Space, Satellites + Sustainability (S3) Digital Forum 2020

Plan to participate in SPIE S3 Digital Forum

SPIE S3 is transitioning to a FREE Digital Forum to be held 21 - 25 September.  Organised by the University of Edinburgh and SPIE, this interdisciplinary meeting will highlight newly operational satellite systems providing new sensors supporting sustainability.  Advances in the processing of big satellite data will be presented alongside novel analytics, including those producing actionable sustainability intelligence. Take this opportunity to participate in an innovative conference and meet like-minded colleagues from academia, government and industry. 

Co-located with: SPIE Remote Sensing 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.

We invite you to join us online 21 - 25 September

We face a climate crisis, with associated widespread losses of natural ecosystems and biodiversity. In 2015 in Paris, global leaders agreed on 17 sustainable development goals and 169 associated targets to be met by 2030. Satellites provide a unique ability to support sustainable development with scaled analyses.

Share your research on the latest satellite sensors and applications supporting sustainability.
