Remote Sensing Data and Information
Location: Split, Croatia
Date: 22 and 23 May 2014

SplitRS 2014_2SplitRS 2014 is intended for PhD students and early career professionals dealing with remote sensing topics in geoscience. The school will offer these students the opportunity to meet top international professors and researchers in the field of remote sensing and to gain an in-depth-education with the state-of-the-art knowledge on selected topics of remote sensing.

This intensive and advanced, 2-day learning event, presents best insights into most recent techniques learned from top international professors and researchers. Participants will learn about different remote sensing applications using both passive and active sensors. Learning about information extraction techniques will be an integral part of the school program in 2014.

 The school will sustain students’ interest in remote sensing field and stimulate their research imagination through open and one-on-one discussions with instructors. After the students complete the course material, they will be able to demonstrate their independent mastery of both the application and method. Students are encouraged to bring and display their posters during the student-poster session to discuss their work with the instructors and peers.

Each participant will receive at the end of the summer school a certificate confirming his/her attendance to the summer school.
