The conference will focus on applications of Earth observation (EO), remote sensing (RS), and geoinformation (GI) in Svalbard. Researchers at all career stages, especially Early Career Researchers (ECRs), are invited to present their work to an international audience of researchers working in Svalbard and the Arctic.

The aim of this online conference is to:

  • Review the state-of-the-art EO/RS/GI applications in Svalbard;
  • Promote the PhD students, postdocs, researchers, senior scientists, and academics to contribute actively in the SIOS's special issue on EO/RS/GI; and
  • Provide social experience to the Svalbard scientific community during the pandemic time.

The conference will be online via Zoom and there will be opportunities to engage with new science through talks, networking, and social events.

Abstract submission deadline: 15 May 2021
