The current COVID-19 pandemic is posing a serious threat to public health, and to the regular holding of “Oceans from Space” Venice 2020.
Therefore, the Organizing Committee has decided to postpone the Symposium by one year, to 11-15 October 2021.
The 5th “Oceans from Space” Symposium will take place in Venice, Italy, at the Scuola Grande di San Marco, on 11-15 October 2021. As in past events, the new Symposium will focus on the major scientific and technological achievements, innovations and challenges of Ocean Observations from space. The Symposium themes invite to look ahead, beyond traditional approaches, and define novel uses, activities and services to advance the exploration of oceans on Earth, as well as on other planets.
“Oceans from Space” Symposia provide a forum to debate topical issues, to explore advanced technologies, instruments and missions, and to better address management and policy requirements. The scientific program of the 5th Symposium will be complemented by social events that include art exhibits, music recitals, and a visit to the MOSE (i.e. MOdulo Sperimentale Elettromeccanico) installation, destined to protect Venice and its Lagoon from the acqua alta flooding events.
