Organisations: Copernicus, European Commission

Location: Brussels, Belgium

Registration closes: 08 October 2017

Workshop Overview:

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:

  • To identify intermediate and end-users' needs and requirements in the Energy sector;
  • To present the current Copernicus offer in terms of data and service information for the energy sector;
  • To assess and characterise EO-based applications supporting energy industries and policies at EU and global level, including key complementary data either in situ or socio-economic or private which would need to be combined with EO for validation or further added-value processing;
  • To discuss the way forward in terms of new Copernicus products and evolution of the programme's Space Component, with a focus on the necessary data analytics, computing science or modelling required to develop new energy services/products/solutions for the end users (processing, modelling, in situ data or socio-economic data).

Satellite Applications for the Alps

10 October 2017

Organisations: Eurisy

Location: Brixen, Italy

Workshop Overview:

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.

Location: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Symposium Overview:

The Universiti Teknologi Malaysia will present "Geospatial and Disaster Management" as the theme for the GGT 2017. Many agencies and private entities have engaged with geospatial information systems, applications and services. However, more efforts and works have to be workout and envisioned for better information and decisions within the agencies and many users. Today, users demand more and more relevant data, services and information.

In order to materialise all those demands both from data providers and users, all geospatial information communities and related professionals are invited together in one big event – GGT 2017. Many issues and solutions could be shared and discussed for the benefits of all. Participants are invited to submit their abstracts and papers to be presented at the conference but not limited to: 

  • Surveying and Geomatics
  • GPS and GNSS, Remote Sensing, Image Processing and Photogrammetry
  • LiDAR and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)
  • GIS (2D and 3D)
  • Open Geo
  • Building Information Modelling (BIM)
  • 3D City Modelling
  • 3D Modelling

EO Open Science offers an enormous potential for researchers to share knowledge, access and make use of EO data in a global network of communities.

The main objectives of the conference are to:

  • Gather and foster the emerging EO Open Science scientific community,
  • Provide a forum for scientists and value-adding players to present activities relevant to the EO Open Science themes,
  • Provide a forum for international exchange on EO Open Science and for scientists to formulate community recommendations,
  • Present large-scale international initiatives in the domain of EO Open Science,
  • Consult scientists to prepare future ESA scientific Exploitation Elements activities supporting EO Open Science.

Introduction to Remote Sensing for Scenario-Based Ecoforecasting

07 - 28 September 2017

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Location: Online seminar

Course Overview: As climates shift and change, ecosystems respond in a variety of ways. Assessing the ecological impacts of a changing climate is crucial for natural resource management decision-making. NASA Earth observations can be used to help make these decisions. This four-week webinar series, in collaboration with the USGS North Central Climate Center, will include an overview of the satellites, sensors, and tools relevant to ecological forecasting; available climate products and data for ecological modeling; scenario planning; and the application of modeling for species distribution and state-and-transition simulations.

By the end of this training, attendees will be able to understand what ecoforecasting is and its applications, understand how climate data supports future projections of management targets, articulate how scenario planning can be utilized for decision-making with multiple sources of uncertainty, and integrate qualitative and quantitative tools to support resource management decision-making in situations with high uncertainty.

Introduction to Remote Sensing of Harmful Algal Blooms

05 - 26 September 2017

Organisation: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Location: Online seminar

Course Overview: Harmful algal blooms (HABs) can have a negative impact on the ecosystem and human health. Satellite remote sensing is able to collect data frequently and over a large area to identify impaired water quality from HABs. This data can inform decision-makers on where best to put their resources for taking water samples, determine what toxins are in the water, whether they need to change or move drinking water intakes, and whether a fishery needs to be closed. Remote sensing data enables individuals and organisations to have more flexible plans for water sampling. It also leads to a more efficient and appropriate allocation of resources for protecting human health.

By the end of the training, attendees will be able to identify NASA's Earth Science remote sensing data products for the identification and monitoring of HABs, describe how coupled remote sensing and modeling approaches are used in decision support tools, and use a selection of NASA Earth Science data tools to monitor HABs.
