The Symposium structure foresees a daily program of 4 oral sessions, 2 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon, and 1 poster session, during which a buffet lunch will be served. On Wednesday, the last oral session will be substituted by a visit to new MOSE installations. On Monday/Friday, the working day will be closed by a welcome/farewell reception. On Tuesday/Thursday, the last session will be followed by a social event. The choice of avoiding parallel sessions will allow every participant to have a complete overview of all presentations.
The Symposium scientific themes shall cover all aspects of oceanographic remote sensing, including both passive and active techniques, in the visible, infrared and microwave spectral regions. Special attention will be placed on the fusion of optical, thermal and structural data, and on future perspectives. General themes will be space missions, satellites & sensors, calibration & validation, algorithms & models. Applications will include sea parameters and processes, bio-geo-chemical cycles and ecological status, from local to global scales.
