8–10 June 2021 Online Conference on Remote Sensing in Svalbard


SIOS invites the Svalbard science community to this years' conference on applications of Earth Observation, Remote Sensing and Geoinformation in Svalbard.

Svalbard is probably the region in the Arctic with the most in situ measurements, and still there are massive gaps. Such data gaps can be filled using frequent satellite-based acquisitions, new product generation using remote sensing, and integration of in situ data with satellite-based information.

The aim of this online conference is to:

  • review the state-of-the-art EO/RS/GI applications in Svalbard
  • promote the PhD students, postdocs, researchers, senior scientists and academicians to contribute actively in the SIOS's special issue on EO/RS/GI
  • provide social experience to the Svalbard scientific community during the pandemic time
    The conference is being organized and coordinated by the SIOS-KC, Remote Sensing Working Group (RSWG) and guest editors of SIOS's special issue on EO/RS/GI.

The top five papers presented by Early Career Researchers will be invited to contribute as full papers to the SIOS's special issue in the Remote Sensing Journal, free of charge.

Online and on-site in Salzburg

The Department of Geoinformatics (Z_GIS) at the University of Salzburg is honoured to host the 12th International Symposium on Digital Earth (ISDE12), on 6–8 July 2021. Scheduled within the annual “GI-Week”, this special event will bring together policymakers and scientists and explore pathways towards the vision of a “Digital Earth”.

Digital Earth is destined as a defining scientific and technological achievement of the 21st century. This will demand extreme computing for the most demanding big data challenges, the smartest applications of artificial intelligence, webs of sensors and actuators, and compelling gamification and visualisation methods. Most importantly, it will require agile minds collaborating in cross-discipline innovation and pursuit of scientific excellence. Young people, in particular, as “digital natives”, are adept in connecting local action and global changes through mixed-reality media linked to open online services.

ISDE12 aims to support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by harnessing the world’s data and information resources to digitally represent our planet, and to monitor, measure, and forecast natural and human activities on Earth.

14–17 September 2021 6th Satellite Soil Moisture Validation and Application Workshop (6th SMW)

Perugia, Italy

The purpose of the 6th Satellite Soil Moisture and Application Workshop is to discuss and reconcile recent methodological advances in the development, validation and application of global satellite soil moisture observations.

The workshop series is unique as it brings together satellite soil moisture users and developers with the aim of deriving and exploiting soil moisture from passive and active microwave satellite missions/sensors (SMAP, SMOS, ASCAT, AMRS-2, Sentinel-1, and other legacy missions) as well as optical instruments (e.g., MODIS, Sentinel-2, and others).

The following research questions will be addressed during the 6th Workshop:

– Which is the current quality of satellite soil moisture products and which will be the target in the near future?

– Who is using satellite soil moisture observations and for which purposes?

– Which are the user’s requirements for a better exploitation of the products and which are the main limitations that should be overcome?

– Which is the future of the remote sensing of soil moisture in terms of new missions and new products?

There will be no conference proceedings. However, we invite authors, who wish to publish a regular paper related to their workshop contribution, to submit it to the Special Issue of the MDPI Remote Sensing Journal on Satellite Soil Moisture Validation and Applications.
