ForestSAT 2018: Entering a New Era in Forest Observation and Analysis
October 2-5, 2018 in College Park, Maryland
Abstracts due April 15, 2018
ForestSAT is the pre-eminent conference on the application of spatial analysis and remote sensing technologies for forest monitoring and modeling. New remote sensing missions, airborne and in-situ platforms, and the explosion in data fusion and cloud computing technologies are revolutionizing how we monitor and model forests around the world. These technologies are also helping us confront new management challenges within forested ecosystems, including human and natural stressors. ForestSAT 2018 brings its participants to the forefront of this revolution, continuing the legacy of previous ForestSAT conferences that first began in 2002.
Conference themes for ForestSAT 2018 build on these concepts:
(1) Global forest observation
(2) New approaches to forest ecosystem modeling
(3) Remote sensing fusion
(4) Forest mapping and inventory
(5) Forest Management and Policy
The technical program will include plenary presentations, parallel oral sessions, invited sessions focusing on special topics of interest, and a poster reception. In addition, a range of social events and field trips around the local area are being planned. Please consider submitting an abstract for an oral or poster presentation.
