Conference topics will include the science of optics across all aquatic environments, research and applications including (but not limited to) Biogeochemistry, Environmental Management and Applications, Instruments, Techniques and Observational Systems, Remote Sensing, Phytoplankton Ecology, Radiative transfer and Optical Theory, Global Change, and Benthic Processes.
The conference attracts a diverse audience of active practitioners in this field including oceanographers, marine ecologists, limnologists, optical engineers, marine resource managers, and policy professionals from around the world. Attendees attend plenary presentations during the day, then interact with colleagues during scientific poster session receptions held in the exhibit/poster hall in the early evening.
Remarkable changes are currently observed in near-ground (<100 m) hyperspectral imaging. Platform liberalization (unmanned aerial vehicles, multi copters, terrestrial vehicles, hand-held tracking solutions, etc.) has been coupled with next generation spectral camera systems. Non-scanning or real-time imaging spectrometers can image randomly moving objects, dynamic processes, or make hyperspectral videos. After the snapshot spectral cameras have been miniaturized, a number of unmanned platforms were successfully tested for usability and applicability. Seeing the growing community around snapshot imaging spectroscopy, the first real time spectral imaging conference will be organized in Ulm, Germany.
Researchers from all disciplines are welcome! The application areas should primarily come from field-data coupled (out of the lab) or supporting areas (software & hardware prototyping), which are typically suited to agriculture, climate change, environment, precision farming, soil, vegetation and water spectroscopy, meteorology, etc.
Topics will cover both scientific and industrial aspects in:
The 5th Microwaves, Radar and Remote Sensing Symposium MRRS-2017 continues the series of very successful MRRS-2005, MRRS-2008, MRRS-2011 and MRRS-2014 that gathered together participants from many countries in Kiev. We expect excellent conditions for the successful MRRS-2017. All researchers, experts and students who work in microwaves, radar, remote sensing and adjacent fields are cordially invited.
The MRRS is triennial Symposium and is planned to be a forum of ideas exchange and results discussion in the field of electromagnetic theory and applications; microwaves; radar technology and systems; signal processing, including acoustic signals and advanced signal processing in nanoelectronics; remote sensing methods and data processing. Both passive and active methods and systems of all frequency bands are welcome.
Radar 2017 is a prime opportunity for radar specialists at all career stages to update and enhance the knowledge on the latest developments in advanced radar systems.
You will hear presentations covering the latest developments in the sphere, tutorials on key elements of radar technology and keynote addresses from leading experts.
Radar 2017 is a part of an internationally successful series of conferences hosted by the USA, China, United Kingdom, Australia and France on a five year cycle. Radar 2017 is making a welcome return to the UK for the first time since 2012, and its first ever visit to Northern Ireland.
