PARSAX An Informal Look at Radar Technology and Applications within TU Delft


Special Detection Technique (Polarimetry) and Remote Sensing


Yesterday I've received a message from Vladimir Kyovtorov (Institute of Information Technologies, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences) with information about meeting "Special Detection Technique (Polarimetry) and Remote Sensing", which will take place 12 - 25 Sep 2010 in Kyiv, Ukraine. It is organized by NATO Advanced Study Institute. The chairs are Yaroslav Yatskiv (Main Astronomical Observatory, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Kyiv, Ukraine) and Michael Mishchenko (NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, New York, USA).

The goal of the meeting is to present high level tutorial courses and more specialized lectures on the most recent advances in polarimetric detection, characterization, and remote sensing, including military and environmental monitoring as well as terrestrial, atmospheric, and astrophysical characterization. We will present, discuss, and teach techniques developed in various disciplines to acquire information from the polarization signal of scattered electromagnetic waves. We will identify techniques that have been especially successful for various applications as well as the future needs of the research communities. Most of all, it is expected that the inclusion of researchers from various disciplines will lead to cross-pollination of ideas and foster collaborations that will improve research efficiency.

Application deadline is 20 April 2010. More information about participation and event's program can be found on official web-page.
