The VH-RODA workshop will be held in Frascati, Italy from 18 to 22 November 2019. The workshop, hosted by ESA/ESRIN, will provide an open forum for the presentation and discussion of the current status and future developments related to the calibration and validation of space borne very high-resolution SAR and optical sensors and data products.
The Very High-resolution Radar & Optical Data Assessment (VH-RODA) workshop will address the quality and capability of very high-resolution SAR and optical instruments from public and commercial remote sensing platforms. The workshop will focus on the exchange of information regarding data quality, instrument calibration and characterization methodologies, related procedures, on-board systems and needed ground-based infrastructures. The VH-RODA workshop is part of ESA's continuing commitment to remote sensing technology as an important tool in providing information to address critical science and societal matters.
Note that the VH-RODA workshop will be organised consecutively with the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites (CEOS) Working Group on Calibration and Validation (WGCV) SAR Subgroup, Synthetic Aperture Radar Workshop 2019 (CEOS SAR 2019). The CEOS SAR 2019 workshop will focus on current and future issues related to the calibration and validation of space borne SAR sensors and data products.

ESA, in cooperation with the Technical University of Crete, is organising an advanced Ocean Synergy Training Course devoted to training the next generation of Earth Observation scientists to exploit data from ESA and Third Party Mission instruments for ocean science and application development (e.g. with the Copernicus Sentinels). The course will be held at the Venetian Arsenali building at the Center of Mediterranean Architecture, Chania, in Crete (Greece) from 04 to 08 November 2019.
Using a series of lectures and laboratory classes, group-work and discussion, the aim of the course is to develop new skills in the application of complementary satellite ocean remote sensing data sets and their application in synergy for science and applications serving society.
30 September - 1 October 2019
On the occasion of the 12th EARSel Forest Fires SIG Workshop that will be held from 3 to 5 October 2019 in Rome, Italy, a Training Course will be held on the application of active and passive remote sensing techniques for fire research.
The course 'Remote Sensing for Forest Fires' will take place from 30 September to 1 October 2019 at ESA / ESRIN, Frascati, Italy (near Rome). The purpose of this course is to disseminate and discuss research methods and technologies of active and passive Earth Observation for applications related to forest fires.
The experts leading the course will focus on the use of optical and radar sensors for active fire mapping, burned area mapping, soil organic matter, soil moisture, fire emissions and time series analysis.
The practicals will utilise Virtual Machines from RUS Copernicus, and will use a variety of data (Sentinel-1, Sentinel-2, Sentinel-3, Sentinel-5P) and software (e.g. SNAP, EOBrowser).
Applications are open for early career researchers, students, phD students and young professionals from European institutions and Canada with background in Remote Sensing and working in topics related to wildfire. Applicants from other countries are welcome to apply subject to availability of space.
Extended application deadline: 6 September 2019

The European Space Agency (ESA) is organising a Φ-week event focusing on EO Open Science and FutureEO - to review the latest developments in Open Science trends.
The Φ-week, to be held at ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy, from 9 to 13 September 2019, will include a variety of events (e.g. inspiring talks, workshops, roundtables, startup pitch, hackathons) to connect multi-disciplinary communities - from EO researchers, data scientists, non-space corporates, tech leaders, entrepreneurs, up to startup and innovators - to explore together how EO Open Science and innovation can benefit from the latest digital technologies, and help shape FutureEO missions and services.
The conference is open to:
Poster presenters will be invited to provide a short video presenting highlights from their work. The video shall be delivered to firstname.lastname@example.org via wetransfer protocol by 2 September 2019, in order to ensure its publication and diffusion by the date of the event.
Registration deadline: 25 July 2019

A CEOS WMO-GSICS workshop will be hosted by the UK Space Agency at National Physical Laboratory (NPL), London, UK from 09 to 11 September 2019.
Recent years have seen an increasing urgency from international coordinating bodies such as CEOS, WMO-GSICS, GCOS, climate researchers, and policy makers to establish a space-based climate observing system capable of unambiguously monitoring indicators of change in the Earth's climate, as needed for international mitigation strategies such as the 2015 Paris climate accord. Such an observing system requires the combined and coordinated efforts of the world's space agencies.
To deliver data that can be considered unequivocal on decadal timescales, facilitating policy makers to make decisions in a timely manner, requires improvements to heritage, existing, and in-development space assets. In particular, observations spanning the electromagnetic spectrum from the near-UV to microwave need to be of sufficient accuracy and duration, traceable to the International System of Units (SI), and sampled to ensure global representation in order to detect change in as short a timescale as possible. The harshness of launch and the space environment has to date limited any satellite mission's ability to robustly demonstrate SI traceability on-orbit at the accuracy and confidence levels needed.
An order of magnitude improvement is typically required for robust climate observations. Although not as demanding in terms of long-term accuracies, implementing such a system also facilitates improvements to operational applications, particularly where data harmonisation enables ‘information on-demand' for a wider range of applications such as health, a sustainable food supply, and pollution.
Bringing together experts from space agencies, industry, academia, and policy makers, the intent of this international workshop is a community strategy to quantify the benefits and consequential specifications of a space-based climate observing system along with a roadmap to implementation.

The Earth observation scientific community is invited to participate in a European Space Agency (ESA) User Consultation Meeting at the Robinson College, University of Cambridge in Cambridge, United Kingdom on 16–17 July 2019. This consultation forms a critical input to the decision-making process that will lead to the selection of ESA's ninth Earth Explorer mission.
Two candidate Earth Explorer fast-track missions – FORUM and SKIM – have been undergoing feasibility studies since November 2017, the conclusions of which are detailed in corresponding Reports for Mission Selection which will be published in June 2019.
Thanks to new technical developments, the Far-infrared Outgoing Radiation Understanding and Monitoring (FORUM) candidate would measure radiation emitted from Earth across the entire far-infrared part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Significantly, it measures in the 15–100 micron range, which has never previously been achieved from space.
Please note that since space is limited at the meeting, it is advised to register as soon as possible.
Registration is open.
The Imaging Spectroscopy: Cooperation in Space Workshop takes place on 9-11 July 2019 at ESRIN, Frascati, Italy.
