IASIM 2016 – conference in spectral imaging

On behalf of the International Association for Spectral Imaging (IASIM), we have the pleasure to invite you to IASIM-2016, the sixth international conference in spectral imaging, which will be held in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (France), July 3rd-6th 2016.

The biannual IASIM conference is intended to provide a unified, open, cross-disciplinary and interactive forum for the exchange of information and ideas within the general spectral imaging community, regardless of the spectral or spatial range.

This conference will bring together speakers, contributors, attendants and exhibitors from areas covering all aspects of spectral imaging (microscopic, macroscopic, remote sensing) and a large part of the electromagnetic spectrum. It will include three days of scientific sessions, with oral and poster presentations on any facet of spectral imaging research. A partial list of possible topics within the multispectral / hyperspectral imaging field includes Instrumentation, Sampling, Imaging, Data/Image processing, Chemometrics and Applications.

Technical sessions will include keynote presentations by invited speakers, contributed presentations, panel discussions from members of the imaging community, posters and  exhibitors, promoting cross-talks and new ideas.

Bilan de l’évènement GeoHyper – ISPRS Geospatial Week 2015

Hyperspectral imagery is an important research topic in Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. The GeoHyper workshop has been organized by the ISPRS working group VII/3 and by the French hyperspectral working group of the “Société Française de Photogrammetrie et de Télédétection” (SFPT/GH) at La Grande Motte, France, on October 1 and 2, 2015. GeoHyper was also a good opportunity for the scientific community to present recent advances in hyperspectral imagery: methodology, algorithms and applications. This workshop was aimed at researchers and users from universities, research institutes, government organizations, and private companies.

In the spirit of the annual SFPT/GH congress, GeoHyper got organized in four keynote speeches and four presentation sessions. The keynotes speakers were

– Dr Dalla Mura (GIPSA-Lab, Grenoble, France) who reviewed the new trends in spectral unmixing;

– Dr Baret (INRA, Avignon, France) who presented the use of UAVs in agriculture (in a shared session with the GeoUAV and GeoHyper conferences);

– Dr Lefevre (CNES, Toulouse, France) who exposed the recent advances of the French hyperspectral space mission;

– and Mrs Loncan (ONERA, Toulouse, France) who made a state of the art of hyperspectral and panchromatic fusion.

Four sessions have been organized by the GeoHyper conference dealt with 1) vegetation (chaired by Dr Gorretta, IRSTEA, France), 2) soil, urban and hydrocarbons (chaired by Dr Ben-Dor, TAU, Israel), 3) spectral unmixing (chaired by Dr Gomez, IRD, France), and 4) hyperspectral technology (chaired by Dr Briottet, ONERA, France). There was no poster session.

More than 60 persons have attended this event. We hope that it will contribute to the promotion of this technique and to the cross-fertilization of ideas between the research community and the end users.

Finally, the GeoHyper committee would like to thank all the contributing authors and reviewers. We would like to express our gratitude to the ISPRS Geospatial Week without which this event could not have taken place. We hope such event will continue during the 2016-2020 period.

Workshop Specim : Imagerie Hyperspectrale

LOT-QuantumDesign France organise le mardi 8 Septembre prochain un Workshop sur l’imagerie hyperspectrale.

Cet événement mettra l’accent sur les caméras hyperspectrales de la société Specim utilisées dans le domaine de la recherche et de l’industrie mais aussi en télédétection aérienne.

ISPRS Geospatial Week 2015 – GeoHyper

En 2015, le Groupe Hyperspectral de la SFPT (SFPT-GH) n’organisera pas de colloque spécifique à la communauté française (Paris 2011, Toulouse 2012, Porquerolles 2014) mais s’associera à l’évènement GeoHyper qui se déroulera du 29 septembre au 3 octobre à La Grande Motte (Montpellier) dans le cadre de la Geospatial Week de l’ISPRS.

IEEE Whispers 2015: special session on urban areas

Dear colleagues,

This is an invitation to submit a paper on the topic for a special session on « Hyperspectral imagery for urban areas » that we are preparing for the upcoming 7th IEEE GRSS Workshop on Hyperspectral Image and Signal Processing: Evolution in Remote Sensing (IEEE Whispers) that will be held in Tokyo, Japan on 2-5 June 2015 (http://www.ieee-whispers.com/). The objective of this session is to present your recent research work on the benefits of using hyperspectral imagery to improve the knowledge about urban areas.

The people involved in the organization of this session are Dr. Xavier Briottet, from ONERA, France and Dr. Peter Reinartz, from DLR, Germany. We would be greatly honored if you could contribute a paper on your most recent research to our session and present your work in Tokyo.

If this is the case, please provide us with a tentative title and list of authors for your contribution so that we can include it in our proposal for the special session. The deadline for submission of special sessions to this event is January 15, 2015. The deadline for submitting the 4-page full paper to the workshop is January 31, 2015.

Please let us know as soon as possible if you would be able to accept this invitation so that we can plan our session accordingly. We greatly appreciate your kind consideration to submit your recent research work to this special session and very much look forward to your participation in this event.

The scope of the MAHI’14 workshop is to explore new pathways that can potentially lead to breakthroughs in the extraction of the informative content of hyperspectral images. It will bring together researchers involved in hyperspectral image processing and in various innovative aspects of data processing.

This one-day workshop will consist of 5 plenary lectures given by an outstanding lineup of expert researchers: Tulay Adali, Michal Shimoni, Stephen McLaughlin, Marco Lops and Nicolas Gillis.

9th EARSeL Workshop on Imaging Spectroscopy, Luxembourg, 14-16 April 2015

EARSeL’s Special Interest Group on Imaging Spectroscopy aims to encourage international discussions among specialists working with innovative Earth Observation technologies.

The 9th meeting, jointly organized by Trier University and the CRP – Gabriel Lippmann, builds on the 8 previous successful workshops and will be held in Luxembourg in April 2015.

The workshop will cover all themes related to imaging spectroscopy. Hyperspectral remote sensing has started to move from a largely airborne to a fully spaceborne capability with the development of a number of satellite spectrometers, which will be launched in the next few years. Nevertheless, we find an increasing number of airborne and UAV-based systems in the research community with many new possible applications. At the same time the latest imaging spectrometers measure not just the traditional visible and near-infrared regions, but now also cover fluorescence and the thermal- and mid-infrared regions. These technical developments have fostered a number of groundbreaking research fields.
