Earth Observation, Science & Society Symposium

This autumn on October 10th, the Netherlands Space Office (NSO) and the The Dutch Research Council (NWO) will organise the second Earth Observation Science & Society Symposium (EO3S). This year the theme will be data science; bringing scientists, companies and public organisations together.

The Earth observation (EO) community is both producing and using ever more data. At the same time, data science technologies have been evolving rapidly. The combination of these two relatively recent developments provides great potential for advancing Earth observation research and applications. We hope to help optimise this potential by strengthening the connections between the EO and data science fields. This EO3S symposium will provide inspiring examples of data science applications and fruitful collaborations. We will have a full-day programme with keynote speakers, a plenary session with invited talks and parallel technical sessions. Also, dedicated data science projects recently granted within the national User Support Programme Space Research (GO programme) will be showcased.

We are very pleased to announce our keynote speakers for this event:

There will also be an opportunity to present your work in a Poster Session during the day. If you are interested you can indicate this during the online registration.
