Abstract submission open for 4th Sentinel-2 Validation Team Meeting

27 November 2019

The Sentinel-2 Validation Team (S2VT) meeting is a forum for the Copernicus Sentinel-2 scientific and user community to present and share results of on-going activities related to validation of Sentinel-2 products and to foster cooperation and synergies among Cal/Val teams. The 4th S2VT meeting will be hosted in Darmstadt (Germany) at ESA-ESOC (European Space Operation Centre) premises from 3 to 5 March 2020.

The S2VT meeting focuses on providing independent validation evidence and experimental results to support the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission. The S2VT meeting provides lectures by an international audience of scientists from both industrial and academic institutions working with Copernicus Sentinel-2 and other relevant EO missions emphasising integrative and multi-disciplinary approaches. The recommendations will be used to contribute to the quality assessment of the mission core products while exploiting Copernicus Sentinel-2 data and to give support to the Cal/Val activities.

The meeting will be structured around a set of plenary presentations given by experts working with Copernicus Sentinel-2 and other similar missions to inform on the lessons learned and priorities based on experience, and a poster session of potential cal/val community activities including validation campaigns and methods.

Abstract submission is now open for the meeting, and will close on 10 January 2020.
