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

The program is available as a PDF document: agenda_YP_GRSS_Conference_2016.pdf.
Registration: Once you reach DLR, you will have to show your ID/passport at the entrance where we registered you in advance. You reach building 102, where the conference will take place, by just walking straight for 100m. The registration will be in the foyer of the building. Please make sure to arrive latest 1:30pm for the registration so that we can start in time with the workshop.
