Workshop on a certification scheme for the EO industry

15 - 16 April 2013

Organisation: European Space Agency (ESA) / European Association of Remote Sensing Companies (EARSC)

Location: Frascati, Italy

Workshop Overview:

The workshop will bring together the key players from each part of the EO service value chain; satellite operators, VA service providers, key customers as well as other stakeholders; ESA, EC, EARSC. A scheme will be proposed based on the work to date and the context of product and company certification will be addressed. The views of the various stakeholders will be presented representing differing needs at different stages of the value chain. Both institutional and commercial customers will present their views. The suppliers will be asked to present what they already do and working groups will be organised along thematic/market lines i.e. vertically, to examine the specific interests which will be presented to the workshop as part of a round table session. Conclusions will be drawn as to the next steps to be taken on the nature of the scheme, areas where pilot projects could be considered and linking activities between the various stakeholders.

Registration deadline: 08 April 2013

Workshop Overview:

EARSeL's Special Interest Group on Imaging Spectroscopy is a forum whose aim is to encourage international discussions among specialists working with this innovative Earth Observation technology. The forum was founded by EARSeL at the University of Zurich in 1999, led by RSL, who conducted the first workshop. Since then, five more very successful workshops were held. The next workshop will take place in Nantes, France, from 08 to 10 April 2013.

The meeting will cover all themes related to imaging spectroscopy. As several spaceborne missions are scheduled for the near future, this workshop is particularly important and will provide a unique opportunity to discuss recent developments in imaging and related spectroscopic methods for environmental research, learn about recent developments in imaging science and thematic and environmental applications at ground, airborne and spaceborne levels, explore the integration of spatial and temporal coverage afforded by imaging instruments with the high spectral resolution data obtained for every pixel, discuss ground-based spectroscopic techniques, such as field spectroscopy and related hyperspectral sensing methods, learn and discuss how these methods can address key environmental issues and new areas of environmental science.

CryoSat Third User Workshop

12 - 14 March 2013

Organisation: European Space Agency (ESA)

Location: Dresden, Germany

Registration deadline: 18 January 2013

Workshop Overview:

ESA's Earth Explorer CryoSat mission, whose rebuilt spacecraft, Cryosat-2, was launched on 8 April 2010, is dedicated to precise monitoring of the changes in the thickness of marine ice floating in the polar oceans and variations in the thickness of the ice sheets overlying Greenland and Antarctica, as well as continental glaciers. Following a successful commissioning phase and after nearly one and half years of operations, new and greatly improved CryoSat processors (i.e. baseline B) were installed in February 2012, followed by the start of the reprocessing campaign. This activity will be completed in spring 2013.

Since the start of operations, the mission has been providing systematic data to the scientific community supported by validation and calibration activities to ensure high data quality. The first results were presented at main international conferences, at which great interest from the marine and gravity scientific community was confirmed.

This workshop 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.
