ACRS 2015: The 36th Asian Conference on Remote Sensing

October 19, 2015 @ 12:00 AM - October 23, 2015 @ 12:00 AM UTC+0

We cordially invite everyone to ACRS 2015: The 36th Asian Conference on Remote Sensing to be organized  from 19 to 23 October, 2015 at the Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria in Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines.

As you may know, ACRS is one of the largest remote sensing conference in Asia. Last year, more than 400 participants attended ACRS2014 organized in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar. We welcome your active participation to ACRS2015.

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.

Theme and Topics

Special Topics

In relation to the theme, the conference will have special topics emphasizing the use of Remote Sensing and related geospatial technologies in building resiliency and encouraging economic growth and development in Asia:

  • Fostering Resiliency with Remote Sensing
  • Remote Sensing for Growth and Development
  • Development in Satellite Programs for Asia

There will be presentations and discussions of techniques, applications, challenges and opportunities of Remote Sensing for building resiliency to natural and man-made disasters, disaster risk reduction initiatives, resource mapping and efficient allocation and management, and policies. Recent developments in satellite programs in various Asian countries will be discussed as well.
