Online conference on remote sensing in Svalbard - 4-5 June 2020

SIOS invites the Svalbard science community to a conference on applications of Earth Observation, Remote Sensing and Geoinformation.

Conference dates: 4-5 June 2020

Conference programme

Book of abstracts

ECR awards

Svalbard is probably the region in the Arctic with the most in situ measurements; still, there are massive gaps. Such data gaps can be filled using frequent satellite-based acquisitions, new product generation using remote sensing, and integration of in situ data with satellite-based information.

This conference will provide a broad platform to various regional and Svalbard-wide studies that are being conducted using EO/RS/GI.

The aim of the conference is to

  • promote the PhD students, postdocs, researchers, senior scientists and academicians to contribute actively in the SIOS’s special issue on EO/RS/GI.
  • review the state-of-the-art EO/RS/GI applications in Svalbard.
  • provide social experience to the Svalbard scientific community during the difficult time.

The conference is being organised and coordinated by the SIOS-KC, the Remote Sensing Working Group (RSWG), and the guest editors of SIOS’s special issue on EO/RS/GI.

The top five papers presented by Early Career Researchers will be invited to contribute as full papers to the SIOS’s special issue in the Remote Sensing Journal free of charge.
