This year, ACRS 2015 will bring together students, researchers, scientists, engineers, policy makers, professionals and practitioners from developed and developing countries from and around Asia to share insights into the challenges and opportunities of Remote Sensing and related geospatial technologies in building resiliency and encouraging economic growth and development in one, dynamic Asia.
The conference takes place at a significant moment when disasters and climate change continues to negatively impact our people and the community. The conference, therefore, will provide an outstanding opportunity to learn and explore how Remote Sensing will help us build resiliency to these disturbances and to strengthen our capability to adapt to stress and change.
Call for Abstracts
Everyone is invited to submit abstracts of their papers to ACRS 2015. We especially welcome abstracts of papers covering any of the following topics. In addition to the suggested topics listed below, we also welcome submissions on research and applications of the new technologies in the remote sensing and spatial information fields that you may want to share.
- Fostering Resiliency with Remote Sensing
- Remote Sensing for Growth and Development
- Development in Satellite Programs for Asia
