26 - 30 January 2015
The European Space Agency is jointly organising the 7th International Workshop on Science and Applications of SAR Polarimetry and Polarimetric Interferometry, POLinSAR 2015, and the 1st BIOMASS Science workshop. The workshops will be held in ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy on the following dates:
The objectives of the workshops are to provide a forum for exchange on the latest advances and research in SAR polarimetry and to gather a scientific community for ESA's future BIOMASS mission.
Abstract submission opens: 02 June 2014
26 - 28 November 2014
Ocean Salinity Science & Salinity Remote Sensing Workshop will be held at Met Office, Exeter, United Kingdom from 26 to 28 November 2014. The 3 day workshop is an open meeting to review progress and future priorities for measuring ocean salinity.
The focus of this workshop will be: To review progress made in using Ocean Salinity data (SSS and subsurface), to identify scientific challenges and benefits of using satellite SSS data in the wider ocean community in synergy with other data sources (in situ, satellite, model); and thus, to foster the use of the new SSS data from space in the wider ocean and climate science communities.
Abstract submission deadline: 30 June 2014
Registration deadline: 01 October 2014
28 - 31 October 2014
The Earth Observation for Ocean-Atmosphere Interactions Science 2014, will be held in ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy, from 28 to 31 October 2014.
This joint ESA-SOLAS-EGU conference aims at bringing together the EO and SOLAS communities, as well as scientific institutions and space agencies involved in the observation, characterisation and forecasting of ocean-atmosphere interactions and their impacts.
Abstract submission deadline: 16 May 2014
20 - 22 May 2014
The European Space Agency, in the context of the Scientific Exploitation of Operational Missions (SEOM) element, is organising an event dedicated to prepare for scientific exploitation of the Sentinel-2 mission, entitled "Sentinel-2 for Science Workshop", which will be hosted in ESA-ESRIN, Frascati, Italy, from 20 to 22 May 2014.
The workshop is open to ESA Principal Investigators, co-investigators, Sentinel-2 users, scientists, students, representatives from national, European and international space agencies and value adding industries.
Registration is open
26 - 29 November 2013
In preparation for the Sentinel-3A satellite launch at the end of 2014, a Validation Team has been convened by ESA and EUMETSAT to assist in the scientific validation of mission products and services. The Sentinel-3 Validation Team (S3VT) 1st Meeting will take place at ESRIN, Frascati, Italy, from 26 to 29 November 2013. The aim of the S3VT meeting is to consolidate and document S3VT activities prior to launch to facilitate Phase E1 and Phase E2 cal/val planning.
09 - 13 September 2013
The 2013 European Space Agency Living Planet Symposium follows the previous successful symposia held in Bergen (2010), Montreux (2007) and Salzburg (2004). The event will be held in Edinburgh, United Kingdom from 09 to 13 September 2013 and is organised with the support of the UK Space Agency.
The aim of the Symposium is to present the results of ESA EO missions exploitation by providing a forum for investigators to report and discuss results of on-going science activities.
05 - 07 June 2013
The European Space Agency in Frascati is organising a 'Big data from Space' event on 5-7 June 2013 to address the barriers that hamper an effective use of large volumes of Earth observation data.
The event will focus on issues associated with the organisation and delivery of large volumes of contemporary and historical Earth observations, either space-based or from ground (including ubiquitous information-sensing mobile devices, aerial sensory technologies and wireless sensor networks).
Registration deadline: 27 May 2013
15 - 17 April 2013
The SMOS & Aquarius Science Workshop will take place at IFREMER, in Brest, France, from 15 to 17 April 2013.
The main objectives of the workshop are to provide the SMOS and Aquarius Science communities with an overview on the present quality of the provided data and an outlook on future algorithm developments as well as providing a forum for discussion on specific topics related to improving sea surface salinity and soil moisture retrievals through dedicated working groups.
13 - 15 March 2013
The European Space Agency is organising a workshop on Atmospheric Chemistry and Composition Validation and Product Evolution. The Workshop will be held from 13 to 15 March 2013 in ESRIN, Frascati, Italy.
The aim of the workshop is to present Cal/Val results from ENVISAT, ERS-2 and other Third Party Missions (GOSAT/Odin/OMI/SciSat/Terra-Aqua) to encourage contributions for future ESA missions (Earth Explorers, Sentinels) using existing data sets and Cal/Val infrastructures.
12 - 14 March 2013
The Third CryoSat user workshop will be held in Dresden, Germany, from 12 to 14 March 2013.
This workshop is intended to provide a forum to present and discuss all topics related to the exploitation of the CryoSat mission and to identify novel scientific challenges.
The workshop is open to all scientists with an interest in the CryoSat mission and its data products.
Registration deadline: 22 January 2013
