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.
Application deadline: 01 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 email@example.com via wetransfer protocol by 2 September 2019, in order to ensure its publication and diffusion by the date of the event.
Registration deadline: 31 July 2019
9 - 12 September 2019
The 2019 SPIE Remote Sensing symposium will be held at the Palais de la Musique et des Congrès in Strasbourg, France, from 9 to 12 September 2019.
The event, Co-located with SPIE Security + Defence, will offers engineers, scientists, programme managers and policy makers access to the latest developments in Earth observation, next generation satellites, atmospheric propagation, and imaging analytics.
More details can be found in the event programme.
Paper submission by 14 August 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.
The main objectives of this workshop are:
The Workshop participation is by invitation only with the number of participants limited to 100.
Registration is available online, and the deadline is 2 July 2019.
2 - 3 July 2019
The World Soils 2019 User Consultation Meeting on space-based EO tools for mapping and monitoring soils will take place from 2 - 3 July 2019 at ESA ESRIN, Frascati, Italy.
With the advent of operational EO systems such as the European Union Copernicus Program (including the high priority Copernicus expansion missions), the free and open EO data policies as well as cloud-based access and processing capabilities (e.g. DIAS) an EO based Soil Monitoring System appears feasible today.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together stakeholders from the policy and user domain with remote sensing experts to discuss the necessary steps to develop such a system.
Abstract submission deadline: 31 May 2019

This year marks the 20th meeting of the GHRSST International Science Team (G-XX). This is a great opportunity to have a forward looking meeting focusing on innovation and challenges to develop the future perspective for GHRSST - most notably with respect to a mix of microwave and thermal infrared satellite capability.
The purpose of the meeting is to:
G-XX will be followed immediately by the 8th CEOS SST-VC meeting. The meeting takes place at the very end of the GHRSST International Science Team meeting so that SST-VC members can collate all of the scientific and technical progress from the week and develop a coherent strategy for the year ahead, linking GHRSST and CEOS to advance the needs of SST users around the world.
Registration deadline: 24 May 2019
