LPS16 > Events
During the Living Planet Symposium, several special events are foreseen:
Earth Observation and Cryosphere Science 2016
The purpose of this topical conference organised with CliC is to advance our knowledge on the potential offered by EO technology to answer some of the major open questions in cryosphere science; to review the latest developments on advanced EO-based geo-information data products addressing key cryosphere processes; and identify the major scientific requirements and challenges of the cryosphere scientific community for the coming years where EO may contribute.
Submitters of contributions to this event are advised to select "Cryosphere" as theme for their abstract.
Since the start of operations, the CryoSat mission has been providing systematic data to the scientific community supported by validation and calibration activities to ensure high data quality. This event is intended to provide a forum to present and discuss all topics related to the exploitation of the CryoSat mission and to identity novel scientific challenges.
Submitters of contributions to this event are advised to select "User-Workshop" as one of the keywords and "CryoSat" as satellite data keyword.
Spot-5 Take-5 Workshop
From April to August 2015 SPOT-5 has been placed in a new orbit allowing to acquire data over selected sites every 5 days under constant angles. A similar campaign was conducted with Spot-4 in 2013. This workshop, organised with CNES, aims to present results from these scientific experiment, run in preparation to Sentinel-2.
Submitters of contributions to this event are advised to select "Take-5" as one of the keywords for their abstract.
Czech User Forum
This event is intended to provide a specific forum for Czech users to present and discuss all topics related to GEO/GEOSS and Sentinel missions across the Czech community of data users.
The main goal of this event is to inform the user community about data, services and applications available within the Copernicus programme and other connected activities, development of the user community and support for utilization of remote sensing data and development of the applications in Czech Republic among all sectors (state administration, academic and research spheres and the private sector).
Czech User Forum is organised in the Czech Republic since 2012 as a regular meeting for Czech national users of remote sensing data with a special focus on data and services from the Copernicus programme. The event will be organized in cooperation with the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic and CENIA, Czech Environmental Agency. The official language is mostly Czech or English in case of utilization of foreign presenters.
