The GRSS Earth Science Informatics (ESI) technical committee will welcome a new working group on “High-performance and Disruptive Computing in Remote Sensing” (HDCRS). The main objective of the group is to connect a community of interdisciplinary researchers in remote sensing who are specialized on high-performance and distributed computing, disruptive computing (e.g., quantum annealing and universal gate quantum computers) and parallel programming models with specialized hardware (e.g., GPUs, FPGAs). HDCRS will disseminate information and knowledge through educational events, special sessions and tutorials at conferences and publication activities. The official website of the group and its activities for 2021 will be presented next March through a GRSS webinar. Interested persons from academia and industry will be invited to join and contribute to the group. HDCRS is organizing activities such as special sessions at IGARSS 2021 and a summer school at the University of Iceland at the end of May.
