The 12th Irish Earth Observation Symposium program is now published. The conference will be held in the Conference Centre of The Teagasc Research Centre in Ashtown Dublin.
Earth observation in Ireland is growing hugely in both academia and the private sector. These changes are driven by the easy availability of data from drones to the Copernicus program and rapid developments in processing automation, product delivery and machine learning. The potential for earth observation techniques to answer important national questions has never been higher.
The conference this year especially welcomes presentations on the themes of automation, EO product development and machine learning- though as usual there will be space for all applications of EO in Ireland to be presented.
The Symposium will commence at 9.30am on Thursday 6th December, with a mix of oral and poster sessions. The Symposium will continue through the morning of Friday 7th December with a special workshop on coding in EO.
There is no cost for registration and postgraduate students are particularly encouraged to attend.
The Program is available: Program IEOS 2018

The idea of the Irish Earth Observation Symposium was born over a drink (where some of the best ideas are conceived) in Germany in February 2007, when 4 Irish Remote Sensing experts were gathered at a conference and realised that there was no real network for Remote Sensing practitioners or researchers in Ireland. The first Symposium was hosted by Teagasc in November 2007, with almost 50 people attending the one day event. This was followed by meetings in Cork at the National Maritime College in 2008, in Dublin at the Geological Survey of Ireland in 2009 and every year since then a different location – last year the conference was held in Maynooth University with over 140 attendees.
