ESA Living Planet Symposium
From Monday 13 May 2019
To Friday 17 May 2019
Location Milan, Italy

Attracting thousands of scientists and data users, ESA’s Living Planet Symposia are amongst the biggest Earth observation conferences in the world. For decades now Earth observation has played a fundamental role in advancing our understanding of how our planet works and how it is being affected by climate change. While the need to continue to advance our knowledge and monitor global change remains paramount, Earth observation has entered a new era where it is playing a key role in a myriad of everyday applications to improve daily lives and is also becoming increasingly relevant for the competitive business sector.

The Living Planet Symposium 2019 promises to be bigger and wider ranging than ever before. The event will not only see scientists present their latest findings on Earth’s environment and climate derived from satellite data, but will also focus on Earth observation’s role in building a sustainable future and a resilient society. Participants will also be able to explore how emerging technologies are revolutionising the use of Earth observation and how business and the economy can benefit from this new epoch.

Registration Deadline: 30 April

Sea Ice Sessions coming up here:

A2.09 Retrievals of sea ice properties and processes
Sea ice is an important component of the polar systems and it is changing rapidly. Accurate and systematic observations are required to better understand and predict sea ice changes. We invite abstracts about retrievals of sea ice properties and processes from any kind of satellite remote sensing, or from combinations of satellite and airborne or in-situ observations that can advance our capability to better observe sea ice from space, and to comprise components of near-future polar regions observing systems.
