Call for Papers:

Aerial sensors technologies used to detect and classify objects on Earth (both on the surface, and in the atmosphere and oceans) by means of propagated signals may relay on active remote sensing (RADAR, LiDAR) or passive (film photography, infrared, charge-coupled devices, and radiometers). The advances in phenomena modeling, and the increase of computation and storage power made it possible to explore Earth and Atmospheric with a greater accuracy. The quality of remote sensing data consists of its spatial, spectral, radiometric and temporal resolutions. Considering the big climatic and ecologic impact on monitoring vast areas of Earth and Space, we assist to major developments on technologies, models, tools, hardware, and software applications specifically dedicated to remote sensing. Large scale aerial sensing combined with ground-based sensing allow monitoring trends on natural long and short term phenomena. Remote sensing applications include monitoring deforestation in areas, glacial features in Arctic and Antarctic regions, and depth sounding of coastal and ocean depths. Other applications are useful for natural resource management, monitoring agricultural fields, such as land usage and conservation, and national security and overhead, ground-based and stand-off collection on border areas. Additionally, with a high velocity of urban changing, crowd mobility, animal migration, pollution, and traffic patterns are of particular interest. As input data are needed for monitoring, remote sensing replaces costly and slow data collection on the ground, ensuring in the process that areas or objects are not disturbed.

ENVIROSENS 2017, International Symposium on Remote Sensing for Climate and Earth Monitoring, is dedicated to advances and challenges on the following topics.

Details on contributions and proposals.

FORMATS

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received submissions will be acknowledged via an automated system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11", not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page. Helpful information for paper formatting can be found on the here. Latex templates are also available.

Slides-based contributions can use the corporate/university format and style.

Your paper should also comply with the additional editorial rules.

Once you receive the notification of contribution acceptance, you will be provided by the publisher an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.

We would recommend that you should not use too many extra pages, even if you can afford the extra fees. No more than 2 contributions per event are recommended, as each contribution must be separately registered and paid for. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to ensure that the paper will be included in the conference proceedings and in the digital library, or posted on the www.iaria.org (for slide-based contributions).

Submit a Paper:

First, fill out the submission form with information about your paper. Please, fill it out only once for each paper, and do not resubmit it. Contact the address below if you run into any difficulties.

As the designated correspondence author, you will then receive a first e-mail message containing the paper ID. The information in the email will allow you to submit your paper.

If you have some problems send your paper via this e-mail (please report your paper ID in the text of your mail AND the name of the conference).

The conference staff will contact you only if the paper does not print properly or has other problems.

You can change information about your paper, submit brief corrections, view an email trail, and even edit your personal information by following the link in the initial confirmation email.
