SIOS invites abstracts from the Svalbard science community working on applications based on Earth Observation, Remote Sensing and Geoinformation. The conference will take place online 4-5 June 2020.

Svalbard is probably the region in the Arctic with the most in situ measurements; still, there are massive gaps. Such data gaps can be filled using frequent satellite-based acquisitions, new product generation using remote sensing, and integration of in situ data with satellite-based information.

This conference will provide a broad platform to various regional and Svalbard-wide studies that are being conducted using EO/RS/GI.

The aim of the conference is to:

  • Promote the PhD students, postdocs, researchers, senior scientists and academicians to contribute actively in the SIOS’s special issue on EO/RS/GI.
  • Review the state-of-the-art EO/RS/GI applications in Svalbard.
  • Provide social experience to the Svalbard scientific community during the difficult time.

The conference is being organised and coordinated by the SIOS-KC, the Remote Sensing Working Group (RSWG), and the guest editors of SIOS’s special issue on EO/RS/GI.

The top five papers presented by Early Career Researchers will be invited to contribute as full papers to the SIOS’s special issue in the Remote Sensing Journal free of charge.

Deadline to submit abstracts: 24 May 2020.
