Call for submissions to a special issue of Remote Sensing - "Innovative Belgian Earth Observation research for the environment”

You are here

Deadline 15 April 2022


Organisation: MDPI Remote Sensing

Just before summer we informed you of the intention of the journal “Remote Sensing” to publish a special issue entitled “Innovative Belgian Earth Observation research for the environment”. 10 researchers already showed their interest by submitting an abstract. We can now announce that the information on the special issue is online and that papers can be submitted. If you're a promotors or a researcher of a STEREO project, you are encouraged to do so too.

We are currently looking into the possibility of paying part of the article processing charge (i.e. 2,400 CHF) for papers resulting from a STEREO project. We will get back to you on this presently.

In this special issue we aim at collecting papers that

  1. Illustrate the application and potential of Earth observation tools in the sustainable management of a densely populated country in environments such as agriculture, forests and nature reserves, coasts and cities;
  2. Demonstrate the capabilities offered by new optical, radar, hyperspectral and Lidar data to study the Earth system; and
  3. Showcase the benefits of a strong remote sensing community for the calibration/validation of sensors and data analysis tools. Any author affiliated to Belgian institutions is invited to contribute and researchers working in the framework of the STEREO programme are particularly targeted.

Deadline for manuscripts: 15 April 2022
