36th International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment (ISRSE-36)

May 11-15, 2015, Berlin, Germany

Call for Papers

ISRSE-36 calls for papers on the use of Earth Observation systems and related Remote Sensing techniques for understanding and managing the Earth environment and resources. The Symposium will also cover applications dedicated to enhancing human security such as global disaster risk reduction initiatives. Papers should take stock of progress made in the development of new applications, instruments, systems and analytical techniques in the full range of relevant themes. The 36th ISRSE Programme Committee will consider and evaluate all abstracts received for possible inclusion in oral or poster sessions.

Abstracts (max. 300 words) submitted should focus on one of the following themes (with subtopics given as examples for clarification):

- Agriculture and Food Security: Sustainable agriculture: agricultural monitoring; estimation and prediction; global food production: area and yield forecasts; food security and vulnerability; plant diseases; desertification.

- Forests, Biodiversity and Terrestrial Ecosystems: Understanding and monitoring biodiversity; management of terrestrial ecosystems; monitoring forest cover and biomass; understanding forest contribution to the carbon cycle; tropical deforestation; forestry and forest management.

- Atmosphere, Weather and Climate: Monitoring atmospheric trace gases and parameters; weather information and understanding; weather forecasting and warning; monitoring, and adapting to climate variability and climate change.

- Natural Disasters Monitoring, Warning and Response: Understanding risks through long term monitoring; disaster mitigation and alert; supporting disaster response and post-disaster recovery and build-up activities.

- Energy and Geology: Monitoring resources of renewable energy; sustainable use of energy and energy resources; mitigating effects on the environment in exploring energy resources; exploration and exploitation of non-renewable energy resources and minerals.

- Water Cycle: Understanding the water cycle; water resource management; water bodies as a sustainable resource for fishery, transport and tourism; biodiversity in water bodies; inland water quality.

- Marine and Coastal Environment, Resources and Dynamics: Understanding and monitoring marine and coastal biodiversity; the marine environment as a resource for food, energy, transport and tourism; ocean dynamics and parameters; maritime traffic and oil spill monitoring.

- Polar and Cold Regions: Understanding and monitoring polar and alpine biodiversity; the polar oceans; glacier and snow monitoring; transport and resources exploitation in the polar environment;

- Socioeconomic Issues including Health, Urbanization and Human Heritage: Man and environment; monitoring, understanding and predicting man-made and natural parameters, affecting human health; monitoring urbanization and understanding socioeconomic issues; man in history, culture and world heritage; archaeology and remote sensing.

- Data and Information Systems and Spatial Data Infrastructures: Systems to manage, process, store and distribute Earth observation data and products; use of geographic information systems; standards, interfaces and systems for spatial data; new GIS and image analysis techniques; opportunities and challenges of the Internet.

- Airborne and Innovative Remote Sensing Platforms and Techniques: Airborne platforms and campaigns; new approaches and platforms in space based Earth observation; ground based and in-situ measurements complementing Earth observation.

- National, Regional and International Programs including Education and Outreach: Earth observation systems, applications and awareness programs; bilateral and multilateral cooperation mechanisms; education, learning and outreach.

Interested contributors should submit an abstract (max. 300 words) of the paper they propose for presentation in English language until 25 October 2014. Notification of paper acceptance and an author’s kit will be mailed by 30 November 2014. Final papers will be due by 25 March 2015. Abstracts must be submitted online via the Abstract Submission System at, which will open on 1 July 2014. Each presenting author will be required to register and pay the registration fee by the author registration deadline on 25 March 2015, to ensure their paper is included in the final programme.

Technical Programme Committee

A Technical Programme Committee composed of international experts from various domains of Earth observation and geographic information science will be responsible for the ISRSE-36 programme and the selection of presentations and posters from the submitted abstracts. Oral presentations (max 15 minutes including questions) will be thematically grouped and conducted in up to six parallel sessions. Poster presentations will feature during dedicated times in the conference schedule.

All full papers will be published in the ISPRS Archives.
