The 12th International Circumpolar Remote Sensing Symposium
May 14-18, 2012
Abstracts Due March 15, 2012
Discussion Topics include Remote Sensing of the Arctic, Subarctic and Antarctic Regions, for example:
- Environmental monitoring
- Wildlife management and habitat protection
- Arctic vegetation
- Land and water management
- Land cover and land use change
- Pollution control
- Snow and ice, glaciers
- Mineral and oil and gas exploration
- Hyperspectral remote sensing
- Ground, Airborne and Satellite imaging
- Data Integration and Data Mining, Modeling
- Geographic Information System and Web based portals
- Boreal processes that have direct influence on Arctic processes
This symposium is unique in that it deals specifically with remote sensing applications in Arctic and Antarctic environments. It provides an international forum for the exchange of current applied research in remote sensing and GIS applications for land and resource management, environmental monitoring, mineral exploration and in other fields.
There will be two types of contributions to the symposium available:
1 - Oral presentation
2 - Poster
Abstracts are required for both types of presentations.
All abstracts, presentations and posters will be given in English
Interested contributors should submit an abstract of not more than 500 words, accompanied by the following information:
Author(s) name, title, affiliation, mailing address
Proposed presenter(s) Phone, fax and email of author(s)/presenter(s)
Abstracts should be sent electronically, as an unformatted (i.e., no tabs, columns, bolding, etc.) Microsoft Word, OpenOffice, or plain text document to Carl Markon by March 15, 2012. If using Microsoft Word, save the document in the ".doc" format, NOT as ".docx". Authors will be notified of acceptance of their contributions by March 30, 2012, and the deadline for registration is April 15, 2012.
Recommended size of posters is 1 m tall by 2 m long. Posters should be on a single sheet of paper or multiple sheets to fit within this area. Text should be short and to the point (recommended no more than 2000 words) with ample graphics to relay only the most important aspects of the work. Poster authors should be available to answer any questions viewers may have.
Oral presentations should be in Microsoft PowerPoint format and given to the session moderator on a CD-ROM or USB external drive for loading onto the conference laptop. If the presentation is on a USB external drive, it is recommended that the author also have a back-up on a CD-ROM. All presentations should be delivered to the session moderator not later than the break preceding the presentation. Presentations will be given in English. At the present time, authors should plan for a maximum of 20 minutes, with a few minutes allowed for questions. The allotted time may increase to 30 minutes depending on the number of presenters. Please check the symposium Web page in early May for changes to the allotted time.
Arrangements have been made to have the proceedings from this symposium published in the International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation. Arrangements for the submission of manuscripts to the International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation will be announced later, although prospective authors should be ready to provide a manuscript at short notice.
