UAS4Enviro2017: Small Unmanned Aerial Systems
for Environmental Research
Dates: 28th-30th June 2017
Location: University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, Portugal
Description: We invite you to attend this conference of the RSPSoc's UAVs SIG which will bring together academics, practitioners and those with an interst in working with small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) for environmental monitoring and research. This three-day conference will be composed by scientific presentations (28 and 29 June) and a UAS Industry Day (30 June), where companies will dispose of 30 min to present their developments/applications and a demonstrative workshop with live demos on data collection and processing ueing different platforms and sensors.
Abstracts are invited for oral and poster presentations, on a range of environmental topics, including but not limited to:
- Terrestrial applications – such as geomorphology, natural hazards, glaciology, archaeology, ecology, conservation, terrain assessment, agriculture, forestry, geology & geophysics
- Hydrological applications – such as river science, hydrology, coastal & marine
- Atmospheric applications – such as aerobiology
- Practicalities of data collection using sUAS (including licensing and flight regulations)
- Processing and analysis of sUAS data (including photogrammetry and structure from motion)
Abstract Submission: Is now OPEN. Please submit one-page abstracts (max 2000 words) by 31st March. Authors will be notified of the decision of the scientific committee by April 2017
Registration: Opens April 2017
