Editer SupprimerIAG conference August 2013 in Paris, S26b Remote sensing and geomorph session

25/09/2012 - 01:00 par Chantal Kasprzycki

Dear colleagues,
This is a call for papers at the 8th IAG International Conference of Geomorphology to be held in Paris (France) on 27-31 August 2013. (http://www.geomorphology-iag-paris2013.com/)
We would like to draw your attention to the Methods in Geomorphology session S26-B Remote-sensing (including laser scanning, applications of radar, etc.) organized by Dirk Rieke-Zapp and myself
Recent advances in surveying technology and better availability of high precision surveying tools made it easy for geomorphologists to benefit from data with higher spatial resolution as well as data with much better precision than just 10 years ago. In this session we want to (i) increase the awareness of modern surveying techniques and their application to geomorphology, (ii) provide a platform for researchers to present their experiences with laser scanners, range cameras, close range photogrammetry, terrestrial LASER & RADAR as well as other new surveying tools and (iii) address the question how valuable more precise data and new surveying techniques really are - is our process understanding / are our landscape models ready for high resolution data? Are current models ready for data with mm resolution of a field site? What problems can really be solved by better resolution and better precision? What are the problems during data acquisition?
The proposed session has an overlap with ISPRS Commission V Working Group V/6 - "Close range morphological measurements for the sciences". While the ISPRS commission meetings are typically visited by professionals of geodesy a similar session at IAG in Paris would allow better communication between professional surveyors and geomorphologists.
Abstracts are due on 15 October 2012 here http://www.geomorphology-iag-paris2013.com/en/submit-abstract

About Nantes

Quick Links

Ecole Centrale de Nantes, the OOAE Division and ASME are pleased to announce that the 32nd International Conference on Ocean, Offshore and Arctic Engineering (OMAE 2013) will be held at La Cité - Nantes Events Center from June 9 - 14, 2013 in Nantes, France.


Abstract submission is now open for all traditional OMAE symposia.  OMAE 2013 will hold an Honouring Symposium for Professor Odd Faltinsen on Marine Hydrodynamics. Short Courses are being planned and information will be available in September on the conference website and in our next update.


Nantes is located in the Loire Valley in Western France, only a one hour flight from Paris or London and is steeped in history, Nantes is also home to the Dukes of Brittany Castle, the Jules Verne Museum and Les Machines de l'Ile, where living machines like the Great Elephant come to life! Plan on arriving early and staying after OMAE 2013 so that you can explore all that Nantes and the surrounding area has to offer!


Be sure to include OMAE 2013 in your plans by:

  1. Adding the OMAE 2013 dates (June 9-14) to your calendar/planner.
  2. Visiting the OMAE 2013 conference website to view the conference details.
  3. Submitting an abstract by October 1st.

We look forward to seeing you in Nantes!

About Nantes


Nantes is the sixth largest city in France and the "most livable city in Europe", as named by Time Magazine in 2004. Nantes boasts the biggest airport in western France with 45 destinations served with direct flights and is only a one-hour flight from Paris and London, and a 90 minute flight from Schiphol, Amsterdam. It is also easily accessible by high speed train (TGV) from Paris.


Due to its proximity to the coast, OMAE 2013 participants can experience nearby beaches, vineyards and the beautiful landscape of the famous Loire Valley. When in Nantes, a list of must-sees includes the Dukes of Brittany Castle, Saint-Peter Cathedral, the Place Royale, the Passage Pommeraye, the Graslin Theatre, and the Jules Verne Museum to name a few. Your visit would not be complete without stopping at the Les Machines de l'Ile where a team of machine builders and designers are building a collection of living machines like the Great Elephant, the Marine Worlds and the Heron Tree.
