9 February 2023 Topics Webinar | EO&GEO Series: Drones in Geographical Applications


Ultra-high spatial resolution imagery from Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), coupled with the latest advances in image processing algorithms, has led to emerging opportunities for researches from environmental sciences research... As such, drones are allowing new applications and niche markets to be defined through new sensors and developments in communications and increased real-time autonomous response capability. Building on this ecosystem developed by UAVs, this Webinar aims at providing a platform that will accommodate the latest research and application results related to the use of drones in a wide range of environmental and geographical applications. Thus, we have invited experts in different research fields demonstrating the use of drone technology presenting the state-of-the-art findings, and applications as well as providing insights into the future of drone technology.

The following experts will be present and talk:

  • Dr. George P. Petropoulos, Department of Geography, Harokopio University of Athens, Greece
  • Prof. Dr. Salvatore Manfreda, Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering, University of Naples Federico II, Italy
  • Dr. Prashant Kumar Srivastava, Remote sensing laboratory, Institute of environment and sustainable development, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India
  • Dr. Ionuț Șandric, Faculty of Geography, University of Bucharest, Bucharest, Romania
  • Mr. Alexander Ioakeimidis, ALTUS LSA Commercial & Manufacturing S.A., Athens, Greece

7–21 November 2023 The 5th International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing


Dear Colleagues,

The 5th International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing with a focus on “Advances in experimental and theoretical studies of terrestrial atmosphere and underlying surface” will be held on 7–21 November 2023. The main aim of the conference is to present recent advances in experimental and theoretical studies of the atmosphere (trace gases, atmospheric aerosols, cloudiness, precipitation, temperature, and pressure) and underlying surfaces with a focus on cryosphere, which has a great impact, including non-linear impacts, on climate change trends and the warming of our planet. The conference will promote the use of remote sensing and geospatial information technology and enable the exchange of innovative approaches in the area of remote sensing.

This is an excellent opportunity for remote sensing scientists to communicate with their colleagues, learn from each other, and share ideas and results. It will be possible to deliver live and pre-recorded presentations simultaneously.

The main topics and sessions of the conference are as follows:

S1. Remote sensing systems and techniques
S1-1. Ground-based, airborne, shipborne, and spaceborne remote sensing systems;
S1-2. Hyperspectral remote sensing;
S1-3. Lidar remote sensing;
S1-4. Radar remote sensing;
S1-5. Passive remote sensing.

S2. Remote sensing: physical fundamentals and inverse theory
S2-1. Electromagnetic light scattering;
S2-2 Radiative transfer;
S2-3 Inverse theory.

S3. Remote sensing applications
S3-1. Oceanic remote sensing;
S3-2. Vegetation remote sensing;
S3-3. Remote sensing of land-use and land-cover change;
S3-4. Remote sensing of snow and ice;
S3-5. Remote sensing of precipitation;
S3-6. Aerosol remote sensing;
S3-7. Cloud remote sensing;
S3-8 Remote sensing of atmospheric trace gases.

All accepted abstracts will be published on the website of the conference. You are required to submit an abstract (250–500 word limit). Please see the abstract guidelines at “Instructions for Authors”.

After the conference, there will be a possibility to submit selected papers to the related journal Remote Sensing (Impact Factor (2021): 5.349; 5-Year Impact Factor (2021): 5.786; Top Open Access Journal in Remote Sensing) with a 20% discount on the APCs.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we invite you to join us at the 5th International Electronic Conference on “Advances in experimental and theoretical studies of terrestrial atmosphere and underlying surface”.

Dr. Alexander Kokhanovsky
Chair of the 5th International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing
German Research Centre for Geosciences, Potsdam, Germany

6–9 June 2023 The 2023 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems

Warsaw, Poland

Drones has been announced as the Gold Sponsor of the 2023 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (ICUAS 2023).

The 2023 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems, ICUAS 2023, will take place on June 6–9, in Warsaw, Poland, at the Lazarski University. The central theme of ICUAS 2023 is threefold: 1) reconfigurable aerial platforms; 2) multi-purpose/hybrid aerial platforms; 3) regulations and standards for autonomy. National and international organizations, agencies, industry, and authorities working towards defining roadmaps of Unmanned Aircraft Systems/Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (UAS/RPAS) expectations, technical requirements, and standards, which need to be utilized and implemented to advance the state of the art, are welcome to this conference, which encourages the use of the next generation of UAS/RPAS for a wide spectrum of civilian and public domain applications.

ICUAS 2023 aims to bring together different groups of qualified representatives worldwide, funding agencies, industry, academia, end-users, and practitioners, to discuss the current state of unmanned aviation, and the roadmap to their full utilization in civilian and public domains. Special emphasis will be given to research opportunities, and to ‘what comes next’ in terms of the tools, essential and support technologies, and standards that need to be utilized to advance the state of the art.

Conference topics of interest include:

Airspace Control Networked UAS
Airspace Management Payloads
Airworthiness Path Planning and Navigation
