The objective of the Sentinel-2 Validation Team Meeting (S2VT) is to provide a forum for interaction among different researchers from both industrial and academic laboratories and institutions in order to foster the development of efficient and effective Calibration and Validation methods.
The S2VT aims at collecting independent validation evidence and experimental data to support the Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission. The recommendations will be used to contribute to the quality assessment of the mission core products while exploiting Copernicus Sentinel-2 data and to give support to the Cal/Val activities.
The meeting will be structured around a set of plenary presentations given by expert practitioners working with Copernicus Sentinel-2 and other similar missions to inform on the lessons learned and priorities based on experience, a poster session of potential cal/val community activities including validation campaigns and methods.

This International Network follows a series of events addressing remote sensing of vegetation fluorescence. With the Fluorescence Explorer (FLEX) –Sentinel-3 tandem mission in its implementation phase and fluorescence measurements becoming increasingly available from missions like OCO-2 and Sentinel-5 P, the network will focus on latest developments in fluorescence remote sensing.
This includes fluorescence retrievals and atmospheric correction, product validation using ground and airborne instrumentation, and applications covering modeling at different spatial scales and data assimilation.
In addition, we encourage contributions related to research and applications over coastal and inland waters. The International Network is open to all scientists and engineers interested in exploring the new observation capabilities and synergies provided by the FLEX and the Sentinel-3 mission. The total number of participants is limited.

12 - 14 February 2019
Location: Leiden, Netherlands
High Altitude Pseudo Satellites (HAPS) operating for extended periods at an altitude of approximately 20 km complement and extend the capabilities of satellites in the domains of Earth Observation, Telecommunication and Navigation. HAPS, in synergy with satellites, offer unique capabilities for the development of value adding applications and science. With over 200 participants, the HAPS4ESA 2017 workshop was the first meeting in Europe bringing together HAPS system, payload and applications developers, institutional stakeholders, space agencies and scientists.
Building on this success, the European Space Agency is again reaching out to the Earth Observation, Telecommunication and Navigation communities to review the State-of-the-Art and the future perspectives of HAPS in a changing Space 4.0 environment and with a specific focus regarding potential ESA HAPS activities to be decided at the next ESA Council at Ministerial level in 2019 (Space19+).

Indigenous territories are threatened by fires, illegal logging, mining, and other external land use activities. The sustainable management of such land, most effectively stewarded by indigenous peoples, is critical for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions, increasing resilience to climate change, conserving biodiversity, and protecting the heritage of indigenous cultures.
Earth Observations for Indigenous-led Land Management (EO4IM) is a NASA-funded project implemented by a team from Conservation International (CI) and is aligned with the AmeriGEOSS program of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and the Dedicated Grant Mechanism (DGM) for Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities. The project's objective is to strengthen the technical capacities of indigenous peoples' organizations in the Americas, and globally, through alignment with the DGM.
This introductory webinar series will share lectures, case studies, and demonstrations with representatives of indigenous peoples' organisations and will focus on how Earth observations (EO) data and tools can provide spatial information for forest monitoring, mapping, and responding to ecosystem threats. This series will help attendees strengthen their technical capacities to use EO data and tools to enhance their sustainable land management practices.
The course will have weekly, 1.5-hour sessions on 5, 12 and 19 February and will be held in Spanish and English.

The United Nations Millennium Ecosystem Assessment states: "ecosystems are critical to human well-being - to our health, our prosperity, our security, and to our social and cultural identity." Conservation and biodiversity management play important roles in maintaining healthy ecosystems. Earth observations can help with these efforts. This online webinar series introduces participants to the use of satellite data for conservation and biodiversity applications. The series will highlight specific projects that have successfully used satellite data. Examples include monitoring chimpanzee habitat loss, decreasing whale mortality, detecting penguins, monitoring wildfires, and biodiversity observation networks.

Jointly organised by ESA and CNES, the 2018 Ocean Salinity Science Conference will take place from 06 to 09 November 2018 at the Sorbonne University, Paris, France.
Ocean salinity is a key parameter that links various elements of the water cycle to ocean circulation dynamics and climate. Furthermore, salinity is a key dynamical parameter that influences oceans dynamics. Through the advent of new observing technologies, remote sensing and in situ, salinity research has gained much attention over the recent years, now leading to rapidly growing new insights.
The conference intends to bring together communities working on all aspects of ocean salinity investigations, including analyses undertaken from in situ and satellite observations, numerical models, and data assimilation. The conference will review progress and ongoing work, and aims to identify the next frontiers in the fields of ocean salinity science. In particular, it will focus on recent progress in:
