Young Professionals Conference on Remote Sensing
20-21 October 2016, Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany
The German Aerospace Center DLR
Aims and scope

Welcome to Oberpfaffenhofen! Welcome to the German Aerospace Center DLR! And welcome to this Young Professionals Conference on Remote Sensing! The flyer advertising the conference is here.

It is with great pleasure that we have prepared this two-day conference for you, the formerly known "graduates of the last decade," now the "young professionals." This conference aims to be a meeting point, a place to network with those like you that, after your first degree, have started to work in the field of Remote Sensing.

This is a fast evolving world, and Remote Sensing, making use of the latest theories, techniques, and technologies of science and engineering to sense remotely, process, interpret and disseminate data from the land, the oceans, the atmosphere, here on Earth, or even in other planets, also evolves fast. As you may probably have already realized since you first graduated, it is important to keep pace with the changes and advances that are taking place continuously. For this purspose, it is very important to join professional societies of your field of interest. This will allow to get access to educational resources, to attend conferences at reduced fees, to access the latest research results, and to keep networking with your colleagues.

The event is jointly organized by the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (IEEE-GRSS) and by the German Aerospace Center (DLR).

Submissions are invited from all areas of remote sensing. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Multisensor fusion
  • Superresolution in the spectral and spatial domain
  • 3D reconstruction from aerial images
  • Feature extraction
  • Semantic classification
  • Structured prediction
  • Multi-scale (multi resolution) processing
  • Multitemporal analysis
  • Domain adaptation and concept drift
  • Multimodal registration
  • Image compression
  • Scaling algorithms
  • Interactive photointerpretation, humans in the loop
  • Applications to urban areas, vegetation mapping, oceanography, virtual tourism

The first author of each manuscript must have graduated within the last 15 years, and must present the paper at the conference.
