About Workshop

The EARSeL Special Interest Group on Imaging Spectroscopy in the long term encourages international discussion among specialists working with innovative spectral Earth Observation technologies. The SIG IS organizes Workshop every two years (the last one was held in Zürich) and with more than 20 years long tradition it is recognized as the leading Workshop in this field in Europe, as well as worldwide. It brings together students and professionals from universities, research organizations and private companies to present, exchange and discuss new ideas and research achievements related to all aspects of imaging spectroscopy.  

Imaging spectroscopy is increasingly finding its way to interdisciplinary research addressing today’s key environmental and societal challenges. It is also expanding from traditional airborne platforms towards new ground-based, unmanned airborne and satellite systems. At the same time, novel spectral signals, as for instance chlorophyll fluorescence or mid-infrared and thermal emissions, are being explored. These technological and methodological developments are inviting for exchange of new knowledge and fruitful scientific discussions during the upcoming 11th EARSeL SIG IS Workshop held in Brno, Czech Republic from 6 to 8 February 2019. 

We invite the imaging spectroscopy community to present the latest research achievements either as poster or oral presentations and to submit proposals for invited special sessions and tutorials for students.
