Under the virtual conference settings, there are additional advantages: (1) engagement tools that keep energy levels high, (2) participants are given a voice, (3) far stronger attention is received while one is talking, (4) Q&A through “Chat” is also possible if you do not wish to raise your question verbally, (5) polls, (6) feedback through Chat, (7) use of symbols under “Reactions” function to show your voice, appreciation, or request, (8) greater reach with remote audience, and (9) the ability to deliver live and pre-recorded presentations simultaneously.

The main topics and sessions of the conference cover:

  1. Data Acquisitions from Ground, Airborne to Satellite Borne Sensors
  2. High Resolution Image Analysis
  3. Hyperspectral Image Data
  4. SAR Data Processing
  5. Terrestrial Data Use
  6. Ocean and other Water Issues
  7. Cryosphere Applications
  8. Agriculture Solutions
  9. Disaster Management

All accepted abstracts will be published on the website of the conference. You are required to submit an abstract (minimum 250—maximum 500 word limit). Please see the abstract guidelines at “Instructions for Authors”). A selection of invited and contributed talks presented during the conference will be invited to submit a full version of their papers to the Journal Remote Sensing (Impact Factor (2020), 4.848, 5-Year Impact Factor (2020): 5.353; Top Open Access Journal in Remote Sensing).

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we cordially invite you to join us at the 4th International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing on “Advances in Remote Sensing for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.”

Welcome the professionals, experts, managements and students from the universities, research institutions, military enterprises, and optoelectronic companies to attend the conference.

14–17 September 2021 6th Satellite Soil Moisture Validation and Application Workshop (6th SMW)

Perugia, Italy

The purpose of the 6th Satellite Soil Moisture and Application Workshop is to discuss and reconcile recent methodological advances in the development, validation and application of global satellite soil moisture observations.

The workshop series is unique as it brings together satellite soil moisture users and developers with the aim of deriving and exploiting soil moisture from passive and active microwave satellite missions/sensors (SMAP, SMOS, ASCAT, AMRS-2, Sentinel-1, and other legacy missions) as well as optical instruments (e.g., MODIS, Sentinel-2, and others).

The following research questions will be addressed during the 6th Workshop:

– Which is the current quality of satellite soil moisture products and which will be the target in the near future?

– Who is using satellite soil moisture observations and for which purposes?

– Which are the user’s requirements for a better exploitation of the products and which are the main limitations that should be overcome?

– Which is the future of the remote sensing of soil moisture in terms of new missions and new products?

There will be no conference proceedings. However, we invite authors, who wish to publish a regular paper related to their workshop contribution, to submit it to the Special Issue of the MDPI Remote Sensing Journal on Satellite Soil Moisture Validation and Applications.
