Announcement: BIGSARDATA 2021---SAR in Big Data Era: models, methods and applications

Sep 22, 2021

SAR in Big Data Era: models, methods and applications
22-24 September 2021, Nanjing China

Numerous synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellites around our planet Earth are watching the fragile ecosystem and serving for sustainable development of human society. They are working with various modes and configurations, e.g. frequencies, polarimetry, interferometry, ScanSAR, constellations, etc. Global-scale products derived from SAR data are available for geoscientist, e.g. global DEM, global urban footprint and global forest map, providing the new insight into the earth systems. A new radar remote sensing paradigm is emerging in the era of big data.

The BIGSARDATA 2017 and BIGSARDATA 2019, were successfully held in Beijing in 2017 and 2019 with the technical support from IEEE GRSS, ISDE, and CSIG. In succession, BIGSARDATA 2021 will be held in Nanjing, Eastern China, a beautiful city by the Yangtze River and capitals of 6 ancient dynasties. BIGSARDATA 2021 will offer our community a platform for exchange of advances of SAR technology and applications in the era of big data and artificial intelligence.

The workshop includes various subjects, such as big SAR data modeling, large-scale intelligent SAR processing, SAR applications with the framework of big data. It will feature keynote presentations by distinguished researchers on these topics.
