AIT2018 – IX Conference of the Italian Society of Remote Sensing – LAST CALL FOR PAPERS

AIT2018
the IX Conference of the Italian Society of Remote Sensing
Firenze (Italy) 4 – 6 July 2018

From space to land management

remote sensing technologies supporting
sustainable development and natural
resource management

Hosted by the University of Florence (Italy), AIT2018 is the IX Conference of the Italian Society of Remote Sensing. AIT2018 is an important event to stimulate the cooperation between research institutions, remote sensing users and industry.

LAST CALL FOR PAPERS

The themes covered by AIT2018 are all those inherent to Remote Sensing, proximal sensing and related spatial analysis techniques. More specifically AIT2018 is focused on:

Applications
RS to support land planning and for the mitigation of environmental risks
RS in agriculture, forestry and for natural resource management
RS in geology, soil science and for Earth science
RS for sea, lakes and coastal environments and more in general for water monitoring
Urban RS
Extraterrestrial planet monitoring
Atmosphere monitoring, climate and metereological applications
RS for land use and land cover monitoring
RS for defense and security

Sensors & platforms
Sensors and platforms development for earth observation
Proximal sensing and UAV
COPERNICUS and new Sentinel missions

Methods
Methods and algorithms development for pre-processing and analysis of remotely sensed data from active and passive systems (optical, microwaves and LiDAR)
Image and signal processing
Interferometric methods for SAR data elaboration
Methods for time series analysis
Methods for the extraction and estimation of bio-physical variables
Methods for data fusion and for the integration of information from multiple sources
Spatial modelling and GIS applications based on RS data
Computation intensive systems and “big data” in RS

AIT2018 the IX Conference of the Italian Society of Remote Sensing

Important dates:

31 March: abstract submission
