10 October 2017
Location: Brixen, Italy
Eurisy, together with IDM Südtirol and Berchtesgaden Satellite Navigation Cluster are happy to invite you to a conference dedicated to satellite applications for search and rescue in the Alps! This conference will be held in the framework of the week-long International Mountain Summit, a prestigious annual event gathering the mountaineering community.
The objective of the event is to gather stakeholders of search and rescue in the Alps, and representatives of the space community (decision-makers, research organisations, service providers). Together, they will discuss the premise that satellite services serve the interests of the search and rescue community better when shared and used as common solutions, across the borders, rather than when used individually.

The Copernicus4Energy workshop intends to bring together stakeholders of the Earth Observation (EO) and the Energy sectors, in view of highlighting the potential of Copernicus to contribute to current and emerging needs of the energy industries, and especially the energy transition.
The objectives of the workshop are:
02 - 03 November 2017
Organisation: Copernicus and Maynooth University
Location: Co. Kildare, Ireland
These two events aim at strengthening the linkages between Researchers, Technologists, Service-Providers & End-Users for more effective exploitation of EO data & information services across Ireland. Support is being provided by the Geomatics Surveying Professional Group of the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI) and the Irish Organisation for Geographic Information (IRLOGI).
The Irish Earth Observation Symposium (IEOS) 2017 provides an opportunity for all those involved in the remote sensing sector to network and present their work to the EO community in either oral or poster format. This event, the 11th in the series, is a full day of talks and demonstrations, hosted by the National Centre for Geocomputation, Maynooth University on the 02 November 2017.
Call for presentations - deadline for submissions is 13 October 2017.
Copernicus Training and Information Session
This event will be held on 03 November 2017 at Maynooth University, is the 10th in a series of national Copernicus events. The European Commission is organising the Sessions at the request of, and in collaboration with Member States.
The event aims to promote awareness of the many uses of Copernicus data and information, while providing the opportunity for hands on demonstrations and basic training. The Copernicus Training and Information Session targets both Copernicus 'intermediate' end users (technical) and end user communities (non-technical).
These events are open and free to registered participants. Registration closes on 31 October 2017.
03 - 09 November 2017
Organisers: European Commission under the auspices of the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the EU and co-organised by the European Space Agency, AZO Anwendungszentrum GmbH Oberpfaffenhofen and Garage48.
Location: Tallinn, Estonia
The European Space Week will foster interactions between the space and digital community and will provide visibility to the rapidly changing space sector, its applications and the European Union's Space Programmes Copernicus and Galileo. Central aim is to bring together the most important European space stakeholders, companies, partners and visionaries pushing the topic of space in Europe and beyond.
The European Space Week 2017 is conceived to be a constellation of events ranging from a hackathon, accelerator boot camps, a festive Awards Ceremony, conferences, a Horizon 2020 Space Info Day, a ministerial meeting, to the opening of ESA BIC to an exhibition. The week will address different space-related topics that will interest different audiences from policy makers to start-ups, the public and authorities to industry players. The knowledge exchange will take place through debates, award ceremonies, workshops, symposia and exhibitions in nine different locations.
28 - 30 November 2017
Organisations: ESA, SatCen, JRC and hosted by CNES
Location: Toulouse, France
Registration deadline: 15 November 2017
The BiDS'17 Conference is co-organised by the European Space Agency (ESA), the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission, and the European Union Satellite Centre (SatCen). This is the third edition of the BiDS conference series. It will be hosted by the Centre National d'Études Spatiales (CNES) in Toulouse, one of the key European cities with activities focused on space and aerospace developments and applications.
The objective of this conference is to stimulate interactions and bring together researchers, engineers, users, infrastructure and service providers, interested in exploiting Big Data from Space. Detailed objectives include:
04 - 06 December 2017
The ECMWF/ESA workshop on Using Low Frequency Passive Microwave Measurements in Research and Operational Applications will take place at ECMWF in Reading, UK, from 04 to 06 December 2017.
The workshop will look at applications that can benefit from the synergistic exploitation of low frequency passive microwave measurements but also on the combined usage of active and passive observations. Four topical areas will be addressed: Sea ice and predictability in Polar Regions, sea surface salinity and ocean circulation, soil moisture and flood forecasting, weather forecasting and climate monitoring.
Attendance: This workshop is by invitation only due to the limited number of participants. If you wish to participate please send a request to the organising committee.
