ASPRS - MultiTemp 2013: Our Dynamic Environment - CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

 MultiTemp 2013: Our Dynamic Environment

The Banff Centre, Banff, Alberta, Canada
June 25, 26, 27, 2013

7th International Workshop on the Analysis of Multi-temporal Remote Sensing Images
First Call for Abstracts
Submissions open 1 January

The assembly and analysis of remotely sensed data in a time series represents one of the most powerful and challenging elements of our discipline. The development of new sensors, satellite missions, analytical procedures, and dissemination strategies will help propel our capacity to understand and monitor our dynamic environment across large domains of scale.

The Seventh International Conference and Workshop on the Analysis of Multi‐temporal Remote Sensing Images (MultiTemp‐2013) will be held in Banff Alberta, set in the beautiful and majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains. The event will build on the successes from our previous international workshops in this series and will assess the state‐of‐the‐art in the analysis of multi‐temporal remote sensing images and other geospatial datasets. The workshop will have oral and interactive poster presentations dealing with both the theoretical and applied issues surrounding the use of multiband hyper‐temporal information in support of the sustainable management and monitoring of the Earth’s dynamic environment.

MultiTemp 2013 is soliciting papers in the following topic areas:
• Multitemporal image analysis techniques
• Classification of multitemporal data
• Data mining and analysis of remote sensing time series
• Change detection methods
• Change detection validation and accuracy assessment
• Multitemporal SAR and InSAR data analysis
• Multitemporal LiDAR data analysis
• Fusion of multitemporal data
• Image registration, calibration and correction techniques
• Land‐cover and land‐use monitoring
• Phenology product development and monitoring applications
• Sea‐ice dynamics and cryospheric monitoring and modeling
• Water and ecosystem resources monitoring and modeling
• Environmental reclamation monitoring and modeling
• Drought monitoring and predictive modeling
• Vegetation dynamics and productivity
• Forestry and agriculture monitoring; stress and damage assessment
• Novel applications of multitemporal remote sensing time series

Contributions are welcome from all sectors dealing with innovation and the practical use and applications of multitemporal imagery and datasets. The workshop will include papers accepted for either oral or interactive poster presentation. Only presented papers will appear in the workshop proceedings. The proceedings of the workshop will be published by IEEE and made available on‐line on the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. A special issue of a major international journal is also planned; details will be announced on the MultiTemp 2013 website.

Prospective contributors are invited to submit an abstract at the dedicated MultiTemp‐2013 website. Abstract Submission will be available at http://geog.ucalgary.ca/multitemp2013/content/submissions starting 1 January 2013.

Important Dates
• January 1, 2013 – abstract submissions begin; conference registration opens
• February 15, 2013 – deadline for abstract submission
• March 15, 2013 – notification of acceptance for oral and poster presentations
• March 31, 2013 – authors’ registration deadline
• May 31, 2013 – ‘early bird’ registration deadline
