The 2007 ESA ENVISAT Symposium follows the previous successful Symposia in Salzburg (2004), Gothenburg (2000), Florence (1997), Hamburg (1993) and Cannes (1992).
The event was held in Montreux (Switzerland) from 23 to 27 April 2007 with the support of the Swiss Space Office
The main objective of the ENVISAT Symposium was to present the results of the ESA EO missions in exploitation by:
• providing a forum for investigators to present results of on-going research project activities using ENVISAT, ERS and ESA Third Party missions data
• reviewing the development of applications and services
• presenting the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security Service Element (GSE)
• presenting the use of EO in support of International Environmental Conventions
In addition, the Symposium provided an opportunity to present future ESA and national EO missions.
