Earth observation networks, e.g. in-situ sensors and remote sensing systems, deliver a multitude of data capturing the state of our environment. These data sets are highly valued by scientists and stakeholders from a variety of domains and backgrounds such as hydrology, marine sciences, traffic management, environmental monitoring, energy supply or smart city systems. An active research and development community works on new approaches to share, manage, discover, analyze, and visualize geospatial sensor data. The Geospatial Sensing Conference provides a platform for scientists, developers and users to examine current challenges, present best practices and discuss future developments.

This virtual event will take place from August 31 – September 2, 2020. It continues the Geospatial Sensor Webs workshops and conferences that began in 2013. The focus ‘From Sensing to Understanding our World’ includes sensor data interpretation, analysis and visualization, tools and infrastructures for sharing geospatial sensor data, and novel sensor platforms.

The 52°North Open Innovation Network invites researchers, software developers and practitioners to submit abstracts as presentation proposals. This year’s program includes an EDC Forum session, which particularly invites members of Esri’s EDC community to present and discuss their work in the field of Geospatial Sensing.

The abstract should be 200 – 300 words and include title, authors and an outline of the presentation. Abstracts can be submitted as a pdf file to geospatialsensing@52north.org by June 14, 2020. All submissions will be reviewed by the program committee and accepted on the basis of content, available space, and overall program balance. The authors of accepted abstracts will be notified by July 14, 2020.
