e-conferences, virtually anywhere. 2nd  International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing

The 2nd International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing will be held from 22 March to 5 April 2018. ECRS-2 aims to promote and advance the exciting and rapidly changing field of remote sensing and contribute towards outlining the role of earth observation in monitoring the environment for a sustainable future. All proceedings will be held online at http://www.sciforum.net/conference/ecrs-2.

The continuous technological advent in the broader field of remote sensing opens new opportunities and challenges, emanating from the current and future deployment of new sensors and products, the enormous volume of data becoming readily and openly available, and the ever increasing need for environmental sustainability, among others. Contributions from both theoretical and applied perspectives of remote sensing will be covered. Some of the main topics of interest are listed below:

The conference will be completely free of charge—both to attend, and for scholars to upload and present their latest work on the conference platform. There will be a possibility to submit selected papers to the e-conference related Special Issue of the journal Remote Sensing (ISSN 2072-4292; 3.244 (2016); 5-Year Impact Factor: 3.749 (2016); http://www.mdpi.com/journal/remotesensing) with a 20% discount on the APCs. ECRS-2 offers you the opportunity to participate in this international, scholarly conference without having the concern or expenditure of travel — all you need is your computer and access to the Internet. We would like to invite you to “attend” this conference by presenting your latest work. You will be able to present your work in the form of your proceedings paper, optionally you may also contribute a (video) presentation. 

Abstracts (in English) should be submitted by 17 December 2016 online at http://www.sciforum.net/login. For accepted abstracts, the proceedings paper can be submitted by 10 February 2018. The conference itself will be held 22 March-5 April 2018.

We hope you will be able to join this exciting event and support us in making it a success. ECRS 2018 is organized and sponsored by MDPI, a scholarly open access publisher based in Basel, Switzerland.
