The 2014 ESA-EUSC-JRC Image Information Mining Conference: The Sentinels Era, Bucharest, 5-7 March 2014

on 03 February 2014

The Romanian Space Agency (ROSA) together with the University Politehnica Bucharest (UPB) will host the Ninth ESA-EUSC-JRC Image Information Mining Conference: The Sentinels Era, between 5 and 7 March 2014. The event will take place at UPB, Main Library Building, Splaiul Independetei, 313, Bucharest.

Earth observation data sets are growing in size and variety at an exceptionally fast rate, posing challenges and opportunities for their access, archiving and exploitation. Data and images information mining can play a crucial role in this context.

The event is aimed at European space agencies and organisations, aerospace industry and research centres, value added companies and service providers. The registration opening day is set for 1 February 2014 via the ROSA events website.
