Call for Abstracts DEADLINE 4/15: ForestSAT 2018

Come join us 2-5 October 2018 in College Park, Maryland, USA for the pre-eminent conference on the application of spatial analysis and remote sensing technologies for forest monitoring and modeling. Co-hosted by University of Maryland and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, ForestSAT 2018 will be held at the newly completed Hotel at the University of Maryland, just minutes from Washington DC.

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.

Abstracts may be submitted now through April 15, 2018.
