11th International Circumpolar Remote Sensing Symposium

The 11th International Circumpolar Remote Sensing Symposium( will be held in September 2010 at Cambridge's Scott Polar Research Institute. Prior to the conference (Monday, 20 September 2010), there will be a one day UK Polar Network Workshop on Circumpolar Remote Sensing.

The conference deals specifically with remote sensing applications in the polar environments, both Arctic and Antarctic. It will provide an international forum for the discussion of work currently being carried out in the circumpolar regions. Topics that have been discussed at previous CRSS meetings have included environmental monitoring, the cryosphere, resource prospecting, vegetation measurement, LiDAR, RADARSAT, polar GIS applications, and many others. The deadline for abstract submission is 31 May, 2010.

Prior to the conference, the UKPN Workshop is directed at graduate students and other early career researchers. Sessions in development include Open source remote sensing and GIS, Imaging climate change, and Innovating new techniques; suggestions from potential participants are encouraged. The day will also feature a career mentoring panel and will culminate with the CRSS Icebreaker Reception.

Further details of the conference and workshop are under development - please contact Allen Pope at with questions and input.
