4 September 2018 - 7 September 2018
National Earth Observation Conference "Earth Observation into the Future" jointly hosted by NCEO, RSPSoc and CEOI
Three day conference with pre-conference drinks reception and dinner

We are pleased to announce The UK National Earth Observation Conference 2018 – hosted by the Remote Sensing & Photogrammetry Society; the National Centre for Earth Observation and the Centre for Earth Observation Instrumentation – will take place in Birmingham Edgbaston from 4th – 7th September.
The conference will be focused around Earth Observation science, technology and applications Into the Future. The programme will include exhibitions and poster sessions, a school conference (7th September), plus plenary and parallel sessions.

The NCEO, CEOI and RSPSoc are hosting the UK National Earth Observation Conference from 4-7 September at Birmingham University, with the topic “Earth Observation into the future”. Our aim is to deliver a conference which attracts a significant gathering of the UK EO community across research, government and industry. We have involved the Earth Observation community in planning the content of the conference, and designed sessions to encompass all aspects of Earth Observation – science, technology, and applications.
