PhD Spring School on “Advanced remote sensing techniques for risk management”

Goals and objectives The PhD school on “Advanced remote sensing techniques for risk management” aim at introducing the attendees to the development and implementation of new, innovative and advanced remote sensing techniques to improve capabilities in characterizing risk components such as  hazard, vulnerability and exposure by means of hyperspectral image analysis, advanced SAR processing, machine learning and cloud computing for remote sensing, and geostationary satellites data processing. The PhD school will be supported by EU H2020 EOXPOSURE. It will consist of three days of theoretical and practices sessions focused on tools and application examples, and two days of EOEXPOSURE open workshop to present conferences and tutorials related to risk, vulnerability and exposure applications. To this aim, the school and the EOXPOSURE event will bring together leading researchers from academic institutions, data providers and industry end users.

Fall School on “Advanced Techniques in Remote Sensing Data Processing and Analysis”

Goals and objectives The research and development community has been engaged in advancements in the processing and analyzing remotely sensed data in the last couple of decades. The school will introduce the students to numerous approaches/frameworks/schemes/algorithms to address information retrieval in remotely sensed satellite data acquisition, processing, and analysis. They include feature extraction (information retrieval), information analysis/characterization, information reasoning, spatio-temporal modeling, and visualization. With data availability across various spatial/spectral/temporal resolutions, besides information extraction, the school will focus on pattern retrieval, pattern analysis, spatial reasoning, simulation, and modeling of spatio-temporal behaviours of several terrestrial phenomena and processes as well.
