On behalf of the Département de géomatique appliquée and the Centre d’applications et de recherches en télédétection (CARTEL) of the Université de Sherbrooke, the board of L’Association québécoise de télédétection (L’AQT), the executive of the Canadian Remote Sensing Society (CRSS) and the organizing committee of the conference, we invite you to join us to celebrate more than three decades of excellence in remote sensing, and to trace the path of a future that looks even brighter.
More then ever, technological tools are developing to make remote sensing accessible to an even greater number of users. Satellite images are now available with resolutions ranging from centimeter to kilometer for a wide range of wavelengths or acquisition modes. In addition, new hardware and software and algorithms available today help provide solutions to increasingly complex problems. As a result, the use of remote sensing is growing in very diverse fields. The Conference will focus on the comprehension of the tools and methods related to remote sensing in all the fields where Earth observation is useful. The Conference provides an opportunity to present scientific and technological advances or to see first-hand the latest advances in remote sensing.
The joint presentation of the 32nd Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing and the 14th Congress of L’Association québécoise de télédétection provides a privileged forum for presenting high-caliber national and international remote sensing science. The event being held in Sherbrooke is not fortuitous. The presence of the Centre d’applications et de recherches en télédétection (CARTEL) and the Département de géomatique appliquée of the Université de Sherbrooke provide a significant base for local organization. The context is thus favourable for the holding of a co-hosted event (AQT/CRSS/USherbrooke) in Sherbrooke from June 13th to 16th 2011. The Bishop’s University campus has been chosen to hold the event because of their outstanding campus services.
We hope you will all join us for this great moment in remote sensing in 2011!
