National Symposium on Recent Advances in Remote Sensing and GIS with Special Emphasis on Mountain Ecosystems & Annual Conventions of Indian Society of Remote Sensing & Indian Society of Geomatics

December 7, 2016 - December 9, 2016

The theme of the national symposium and ISRS & ISG annual conventions is “Mountain Ecosystems.” The theme is chosen considering the fact that mountains have recently been recognised as globally important ecosystems as about half of the humanity depends directly or indirectly on the ecosystem goods and services being provided by them. With the increasing realisation of the inherent fragility and vulnerability of the mountains to anthropogenic pressures and climate change, a scientific and integrated approach is the key to monitor and understand mountain processes and to formulate policies for ensuring sustenance of the ecosystem services. Space technology can play an important role in addressing this requirement.
Original unpublished research papers in the following thematic areas are invited from India and abroad for presentation (oral and poster) during the symposium:

  • Advances in EO Sensors & Processing Techniques
  • Advances in GIS
  • RS & GIS Applications (emphasis on Mountain Ecosystems & Development)
    – Agriculture
    – Water Resources, Snow & Glaciers
    – Geosciences & Mineral Exploration
    – Forestry & Environment
    – Soils & Sustainable Land Management
    – Infrastructure & Developmental Planning
    – Energy
    – Atmosphere, Weather & Climate
    – Disaster & Risk Reduction
  • Coastal and Ocean Applications
  • Health GIS
  • UAV Remote Sensing and Applications
  • Satellite Positioning & Navigation: IRNSS & GAGAN Systems &
  • Applications
  • Planetary Exploration
  • Capacity Building

The guidelines for preparing the oral and poster presentations by the authors will be available shortly in the symposium website (www.isrs2016.iirs.gov.in). Awards for best oral and poster papers presented during the symposium will be given to professional and students.

In addition to paper presentations, two popular lectures, i.e. Vikram Sarabhai Memorial Lecture of ISRS and Millennium Lecture of ISG, invited and lead talks by experts on symposium theme, presentations by ISRS and ISG awardees, and annual general body meetings of ISRS and ISG will also be organised.
