33rd International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment
The overall theme of the 33rd International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment (ISRSE), organised jointly by the JRC and the International Center for Remote Sensing of Environment (Tucson, Arizona), is the use of Earth Observation systems and airborne techniques for understanding and managing the Earth environment and natural resources.
Earth Observation, in particular, now has become an essential component of the global effort to deal with global challenges. Poverty reduction, food security and agricultural production, integrated water resource management, natural resource management- especially forests and biodiversity, migration, urbanization, land degradation and, perhaps most importantly at present, climate change, are all inextricably linked, whether in developed or developing countries. ISRSE-33 will specifically address the UN Millennium Development Goals and be structured along the societal benefit areas of the GEO (Group on Earth Observations) initiative.
The Symposium will include plenary and thematic sessions, poster sessions and side events on issues of interest to scientists, policy makers and resource managers in the public and private sectors. The programme will feature speakers from around the globe sharing their experiences and knowledge on remote sensing applications and programmes. By attending the ISRSE-33, remote sensing practitioners, scientists, system engineers and policy makers will be able to get a full view of the current situation in a range of fields now deemed critical in improving the Earth's sustainable management. Students are also encouraged to participate and share their knowledge and views on new R&D activities and technologies through pre-conference tutorial initiatives.
