18 - 19 February 2014

Organisation: National Observatory of Athens / University of Athens

Location: Athens, Greece

Electronic paper submission deadline: 10 October 2013

Camera-ready paper submission deadline: 31 January 2014

Workshop Overview:

Space data volume is increasing as new missions generating scientific data are launched. That said, the necessary mechanisms for disseminating and exploiting space data are not yet in place. Therefore, networking technologies supporting the efficient dissemination of space data should not be considered as a peripheral issue but rather as an urgently-missing mechanism.

In this context, the NETSPACE Workshop, organised in the framework of the FP7 funded Collaborative Project "Space Data Routers for Exploiting Space Data", provides an ideal venue for researchers and engineers to present cutting-edge work and results. Submissions are invited in, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  • Space applications with increased data dissemination requirements
  • Multi-mission space applications
  • Current approaches and policies in space data dissemination and exploitation
  • Delay/disruption-tolerant networks (DTNs)
  • Architecture, design, implementation, and evaluation of communication systems for space
  • Security/privacy concerns and solutions in space communications
  • Novel space mission objectives based on new networking technologies

4th DUE Permafrost User Workshop

11 - 13 February 2014

Organisation: European Space Agency (ESA)

Location: Frascati, Italy

Workshop Overview:

ESA will continue to work with the user community on permafrost, organising a workshop on 11-13 February 2014 in ESRIN together with the Climate and Cryosphere project (CliC), the Global Terrestrial Network for Permafrost (GTN-P) and the International Permafrost Association (IPA). The workshop will gather user requirements to monitor and model permafrost and contribute to current efforts of GTN-P for more operational permafrost monitoring.

The ESA DUE Permafrost project (2009 to 2012) has established a permafrost-related monitoring system based on a first set of circumpolar and regional products: Land Surface Temperature, Surface Soil Moisture, ground frozen/non-frozen state, terrain parameters, Land Cover, and surface waters. User groups including GTN-P/IPA provided ground data and the regional and thematic expertise for the evaluation of the remote sensing products. An interdisciplinary community interested in how to link permafrost-related remote sensing, modelling and field observation has been continuously growing.

ISPRS Conference - Serving Society with Geoinformatics

11 - 17 November 2013

Organisation: International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS)

Location: Antalya, Turkey

Conference Overview:

Geoinformatics is the synergy of data and systems from various disciplines brought together to provide information on the state of the Earth: Geographical Information System (GIS); computerised databases and applications; computer science; remote sensing; photogrammetry; graphical processing; cartography; statistics; etc. - it is describing the main interface between the real and the measured, or virtual, world. It combines geospatial analysis and modelling, the development of geospatial databases information systems design; visualisation (human-computer interaction), and communication (both wired and wireless networking technologies).

Today, many government and non-government agencies have started to use spatial data for managing their daily activities. Often, those concerned are not experts in Geoinformatics so there is a need to condense expert information into something usable by the end-user. To achieve this end, it is important that advances in the technology and new developments in the applications of Geoinformatics become a part of the information management and decision making process.

Location: Badajoz, Spain

Conference Overview:

The Government of Extremadura, the University of Extremadura and the European association Eurisy, within the framework of the cross-border project RITECA "Red de investigación Transfronteriza de Extremadura, Centro y Alentejo", organise this conference as a platform for water managers to exchange know-how and experiences in the use of innovative technologies, notably satellite applications, to improve water cycle management, to monitor the irrigation infrastructure, to increase "crop per drop", to prevent floods on cultivated fields and to reduce the environmental impact of irrigation.

Operational good practices of use of satellite applications and innovative technologies will be showcased by representatives of public administrations or companies working on irrigation management, with the aim of informing other water managers of available solutions and of evaluating good practices' transferability.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn from water managers sharing their experiences, and will discuss with agriculture and applications experts about current and future opportunities in using innovation to improve efficiency of irrigation systems locally and cross-border.
