Remote Sensing Colloquium, Spring 2018

GEO 441.1: Colloquium in Remote Sensing

The colloquium in remote sensing focuses on a variety of remote sensing related topics, or - alternatively - on works showing potential to be used in collaboration with remote sensing based approaches. It serves the purpose of broadening the view on remote sensing related topics as well as fostering international contacts and cooperation. 

The colloquium intends to address students, staff and visitors interested in remote sensing and related topics. The format of the colloquium is a presentation (approx. 45 - 60 min.), followed by a discussion of max. 60 min.

The presentation and discussion language is English.

The colloquium forms part of the MSc curriculum and is embedded in the module GEO 441 (Specialization in Remote Sensing).

The colloquium takes place in the spring semester (FS2018) and starts on February 20 on Tuesday between 14 and 16 hrs. The location is Y25-H-79 unless otherwise indicated. Participation is mandatory for registered students.
