The European Space Agency (ESA) is organising an Advanced Training Course on Land Remote Sensing dedicated to training the next generation of Earth Observation (EO) scientists to exploit data from EO missions (e.g. the Copernicus Sentinels) for science and applications development.
The course is part of ESA's EO Science for Society – Scientific Exploitation element of EOEP-5 (the fifth cycle of ESA's Earth Observation Envelope Programme).
Post graduate, PhD students, post-doctoral research scientists and users from European countries and Canada are invited to apply to the 5-day course which will be held at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom during 10–14 September 2018. Research scientists and students from all other countries are also welcome to apply, subject to availability of spaces.
30 July - 10 August 2018
European Space Agency (ESA) organises a series of summer schools on Monitoring of the Earth System to promote the exploitation of Earth Observation (EO) data across disciplines, with a specific focus on their assimilation into Earth System models.
The two-week course, held in ESA/ESRIN (near Rome, Italy) from 30 July to 10 August 2018, aims to provide students with an integrated end-to-end perspective going from measurement techniques to end-user applications. Courses include lectures covering issues related to Remote Sensing, Earth System Modelling and Data Assimilation as well as hands-on computing exercises on the processing of EO data. Keynote lectures on global change issues are also given to discuss the current state of the science of global change and its relationship to society in order to help students appreciate how their specific field fits into a broader scientific and political context. For more information, please see previous programme, news or video.
23 - 27 July 2018
On behalf of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society and the Organizing Committee, you are invited to participate in the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium, IGARSS 2018, the 38th annual symposium of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS). The symposium will be held in Valencia, Spain, between the 23 - 27 July 2018.
The theme for IGARSS 2018 highlights the pressing demands for "Observing, Understanding And Forecasting The Dynamics Of Our Planet".
14 - 22 July 2018
The 42nd Scientific Assembly of the Committee on Space Research (COSPAR) will be held in Pasadena, California, USA, from 14 to 22 July 2018.
See the list of scientific events (sessions) under the COSPAR Scientific Commission (Space Studies of the Earth's Surface, Meteorology and Climate).
Event A2.1 'Scientific Exploitation of Oceanographic Measurements From New Missions and Heritage Data Sets' is particularly noteworthy, as the aim of this session is to foster scientific applications of satellite measurements from past and current missions to study variability of the ocean and its relationships with changes in other elements of the Earth system, including atmosphere, cryosphere, and land.
We invite contributions to all aspects of satellite oceanography associated with the use of satellite observations and derived estimates of various oceanographic parameters, including sea surface temperature, height, and salinity, ocean surface wind and current, ocean colour, and sea ice. Potential topics include scientific analysis of these data and their assimilation into models. Synergistic use of satellite measurements of different oceanic parameters is particularly encouraged.
09 - 12 July 2018
Organised by European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories (EARSeL), the 38th Annual EARSeL Symposium will be held in Chania, Greece, between the 09 - 12 July 2018 .
Climate change, over population, over exploitation of natural resources, all put pressure on the sustainability of most human activities. Many believe that we must drastically change our ways, in order to adapt to the new circumstances. In order to decide on what is required to change, we must investigate the possibilities and to do so, we require data and information. So how can remote sensing methods help fill this gap and lead us to sustainability?
The symposium offers the opportunity to EARSeL and non-EARSeL members to interact and present preliminary research between the dedicated Special Interest Groups (SIG) workshops that are organised every two years. It is a great opportunity for all interested parties to expose their research to an international scientific community. The topics addressed in each annual symposium are related to the EARSeL's Special Interest Groups, as well as contemporary topics of high interest. Submissions and presentations should be focusing on one or more of those topics, as sessions will be mostly organised according to those topics.
02 - 06 July 2018
The European Space Agency (ESA) through its Earth Observation ground segment team responsible for the Sensor Performance and Product Algorithm (SPPA) is co-sponsoring, together with the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate of the National Research Council of Italy (ISAC-CNR) and the University Sapienza of Rome, the 1st international summer school-conference: "SORBETTO: SOlar Radiation Based Established Techniques for aTmospheric Observations".
The school will be held in Rome from 02 to 06 July 2018 and is open to researchers, young or not, PhD students and workers involved in this type of atmospheric observations.
Main topics in agenda will be:
The school, open to a maximum number of 40 participants, will include theoretic lessons and laboratory activities held by international teachers from leading Universities and Research Centers in Europe and Asia. Attendance to the school-conference is free of charge.
For further information as well as to submit requests for participation, see the ISAC-CNR website

The European Space Agency is organising the 'EO4Alps' The Alps from Space Workshop, which will take place from 27 to 29 June 2018 at the Villa Blanka Conference Center, in Innsbruck, Austria.
The focus of this workshop is to assess the opportunities for EO research and development as well as downstream activities that may be the basis for future ESA investments to address some of the key information needs relevant to the Alpine Region. These opportunities will be framed with respect to emerging Earth science, development of novel applications, testing innovative information services and implementing required upgrades to capabilities to manage and manipulate large data volumes.
The objectives of the workshop are:
Registration deadline: 11 June 2018
26 - 28 June 2018

This year, it will be hosted in Bonn, Germany, between the 20 - 22 June 2018.
Due to the rapid development of technologies, radar technique is still an expanding technical and economical segment with practical applications both in civil and military areas. The worldwide community of radar researchers and experts is lively and everyone from the radar family is cordially invited to attend the International Radar Symposium 2018 in Bonn, Germany.
The International Radar Symposium aims to provide a forum for both academic and industrial professionals in radar from all over the world and to bring together academicians, researchers, engineers, system analysts, graduate and undergraduate students with government and non-government organisations to share and discuss both theoretical and practical knowledge. We invite everybody to submit outstanding and valuable original research papers and participate in the technical exhibition during the conference.
