Call for Abstracts for the upcoming Pecora Symposium extended to July 1, 2017.

May 25, 2017

The 20th William T. Pecora Memorial Remote Sensing Symposium will be held on November 13-16, 2017 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA.

A call for abstracts is open through July 1, 2017. Land remote sensing data users, researchers, applications scientists, producers, managers and policy-makers are invited to participate in this important symposium by submitting an abstract or a paper or poster.

The Pecora Symposium series was established by the USGS and NASA in the 1970s as a forum to: 1) foster the exchange of scientific information and results derived from applications of Earth observing data to a broad range of land-based resources; and 2) discuss ideas, policies, and strategies concerning land remote sensing.

With emphasis on recent significant developments in remote sensing, the theme of Pecora 20 is “Observing a Changing Earth: Science for Decisions…Monitoring, Assessment, and Projection.” This conference will offer a program on applications of satellite and other Earth observations to monitor, assess, and perform projections of future land and water resources, as well as big data and other analytical technologies to improve decision making utilizing satellite data.
