The Earth Observation (EO) Summit 2017 brings together in one exceptional event the 38th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing (CSRS), the 17th Congress of the Association Québécoise de Télédétection (AQT) and the 11th Advanced SAR (ASAR) Workshop. This EO Summit 2017 is an international event to be held in Montréal from 20 to 22 June 2017. It aims to assemble several communities interested in Earth Observation (EO), its technologies, its applications and its societal benefits.
Training on remote sensing applications and technologies will be offered on June 19th. An ice-breaker event will be held on the evening of June 20th while a dinner banquet is offered on June 21st. A student program will foster student – employers networking and offer travel grants.
We are pleased to welcome you to the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) science centre (Coeur des sciences) nearby the lively Montréal Quartier des spectacles, a popular cultural and entertainment destination. Do not miss this opportunity to take part in Montréal’s 375th anniversary celebrations.
Three workshops concerning important remote sensing themes will also be part of the EO Summit 2017:
- The first Workshop, organized by Euroconsult, will address the emerging commercialization of Earth Observation;
- The second Workshop is an international event titled “One Earth – One Health: Contribution of Satellite Earth Observation to Public Health”. It is jointly organized by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA);
- Finally, the third Workshop will be on the role of remote sensing in wildfire management and research. It will be jointly organized by the Canadian Forest Service (CFS) of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) and CSA.
These Workshops intend to gather the relevant communities, allowing them to share their views on the opportunities offered by remote sensing and to recommend an action plan.
