Welcome from the Chair

Dear Colleagues,

The International Conference on Advanced Remote Sensing will be held from 16-18 October 2018 at Wuhan University in Wuhan, China. The main purpose of the conference is to promote academic exchanges in remote sensing, to share the latest scientific progress, to discuss the challenging problems and to draw a better blueprint. This is a superb opportunity to communicate with the colleagues, which can both demonstrate your new experiment results and solve the problems encountered in the research.

The academic activities will be divided into several parts, such as the main venue, the sub-venue and the commercial exhibitions. The conference will invite experts and scholars who have outstanding contributions in various fields to give oral reports. And there are three topics in the conference, sensors and data acquisition, data processing, and application. Welcome experts, scholars and users from all over the world to attend the meeting. We are looking forward to meeting you in the river city Wuhan.

The main topics and sessions of the conference cover:

  • Sensors and Data Acquisition
  1. Remotely Sensed Data Acquisition
  2. Airborne Data Acquisition
  3. Ground Data Acquisition
  • Data Processing
  1. High Resolution Image Processing
  2. Hyperspectral Image Processing
  3. Synthetic Aperture Radar Data Processing
  4. Infrared Image Processing
  5. Laser Scanning Data Processing
  • Application
  1. Land Application
  2. Atmosphere Application
  3. Ocean Application
  4. Cryosphere Application

All accepted abstracts will be published in the proceedings of the conference. A selection of invited and contributed talks presented during the conference will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to the open access Journal Remote Sensing.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to join us at the International Conference on Advanced Remote Sensing.
