The 5th edition of “Oceans from Space”, dubbed Venice 2020, will take place once again in Venice, Italy, at the Scuola Grande di San Marco, on 12-16 October 2020. As in past editions, the Symposium will focus on all the main scientific and technological aspects of Ocean Observations. However, the appellation of the current edition additionally suggests the “20/20” expression meaning “perfect vision”, and invites us to look ahead, beyond traditional approaches, into novel oceanographic applications and developments of space exploration.
The aim of Venice 2020 is to renew and expand the breath of topics of this new edition. The week-long Symposium will provide a forum to debate topical issues, as well as to explore advanced technologies, instruments and missions, without neglecting the potential links to management and policy at large. The technical program will be complemented by a series of social events, including art exhibits, music recitals, and a visit to the MOSE (i.e. MOdulo Sperimentale Elettromeccanico), destined to protect Venice and its Lagoon from acqua alta.
