  • Present new results from the latest studies in the field and asses the state of the art.,
  • Provide a forum for ESA Principal Investigators to present results and status of AO and Cat-1 projects,
  • Present the first interferometric results from Third Party Missions like ALOS-PALSAR, TerraSAR-X and RADARSAT-2,
  • Discuss the use of InSAR data for scientific research and applications development,
  • Assess the available data ordering and analysis tools,
  • Formulate recommendations for algorithm development, new products, future missions and applications,
