18 - 20 October 2016
The European Space Agency is organising the fifth workshop on Atmospheric Composition Validation and Calibration activities, providing science and Cal/Val experts with the opportunity to present their latest results of their ongoing research and application developments including evolution aspects of the validation methods for future satellite missions.
The conference will be held at ESRIN in Frascati, Italy, from 18 to 20 October 2016.
During the workshop the status of the recently reprocessed data sets from atmospheric instruments on ERS-2, Envisat and the data sets of Metop and ESA Third Party Missions shall be presented. Evolution aspects of the workshop will focus on ground based validation networks and their development in view of the Sentinel and Earth Explorer (EarthCARE and ADM-Aeolus) operations as well as Fiducial Reference Measurements. Furthermore, the workshop shall provide the opportunity to address evolution aspects of the Sentinel-3/ Sentinel-5 Precursor products for atmospheric applications.
06 - 09 September 2016
The 2nd International workshop on Air-Sea Gas Flux Climatology follows on from the first successful workshop that was held 2013. This is highly interdisciplinary workshop aimed at bringing the multiple communities studying air-sea exchange and gas fluxes together to discuss common, aims, goals and challenges. The workshop aims to bring together the in situ, remote sensing and modelling scientific communities and funding bodies.
For interest - the workshop report and programme from the first workshop is available here.

The Earth Observation and Cryosphere Science 2016 conference will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, from 10 to 13 May 2016. The event is jointly organised by the European Space Agency and the Climate and Cryosphere Project.
The purpose of this topical conference is to advance our knowledge on the potential offered by EO technology to answer some of the major open questions in cryosphere science; to review the latest developments on advanced EO-based geo-information data products addressing key cryosphere processes; and identify the major scientific requirements and challenges of the cryosphere scientific community for the coming years where EO may contribute.
09 - 13 May 2016
The 2016 European Space Agency Living Planet Symposium will be held in Prague, Czech Republic, from 09 to 13 May 2016. It is organised with the support of the Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Environment and Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic.
The event, which in 2013 attracted 1800 participants, will focus on the exploitation of satellite data in various thematic domains: Atmosphere, Oceanography, Cryosphere, Land, Hazards, Climate and Meteorology, Solid Earth/Geodesy, Near-Earth Environment, New Methodologies and Products, Open Science 2.0.
06 - 07 May 2016
The EARSeL Special Interest Group on Land Use and Land Cover (SIG LU/LC) and NASA Land-Cover/Land-Use Change (LCLUC) Program are organising their 2nd joint workshop "Advancing horizons for land cover services entering the big data era".
The event will take place in Prague, Czech Republic on 6 and 7 May 2016.
The workshop will be conceptually linked with and support the objectives of the ESA Living Planet Symposium 2016, which follows the workshop on 9 to 13 May 2016, as a brainstorming preparation.
17 - 22 April 2016
The European Space Agency, in the context of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) programme element, and EO Open Science are organising scientific sessions which will be held at the EGU General Assembly, Vienna, Austria from 17 to 22 April 2016.
The following scientific sessions will take place:
02 - 04 February 2016
The European Space Agency (ESA) together with the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), have jointly organised a science conference on spaceborne scatterometers to take place from 2 to 4 February 2016 at ESTEC in Noordwijk, The Netherlands.
Today scatterometers are used operationally for wind, soil moisture and sea ice applications. The conference will provide an open forum focusing on the major challenges of scatterometry bringing together experts from science, applications and industry.
Specifically, the conference aims at promoting recent advances in C-band scatterometry and to prepare for the development and exploitation of MetOp-SG scatterometer data.
09 - 11 December 2015
The Geological Remote Sensing conference will be held at ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy from 9 to 11 December 2015. The conference is jointly organised by ESA and the Geological Remote Sensing Group (GRSG).
The 26th Annual Conference which will focus on a wide range of remote sensing applications, tools, latest developments and sensors.
04 - 05 November 2015
The European Space Agency is organising, in the context of the Data User Element (DUE) of the Earth Observation Envelope Programme (EOEP), a conference on Mapping Urban Areas from Space (MUAS) 2015. The conference will be held at ESA-ESRIN, in Frascati, Italy, from 04 to 05 November 2015.
The purpose of this conference is to provide scientists and data users with the opportunity to present first-hand and up-to-date results from their ongoing research and application development activities by using data from past and current satellites.
