Hyperspectral Imaging and Sounding of the Environment (HISE)
14 - 17 November 2016

Kongresshalle am Zoo, Leipzig,
Seeking innovations in hyperspectral instrumentation and data analysis methods, to study geophysical and atmospheric phenomena, and to advance capabilities for anomaly- and signature-based detection.
The scope of HISE continues to expand as hyperspectral measurement and detection systems proliferate. These provide unprecedented opportunities to monitor and understand our planetary system. Fusing hyperspectral observations with other sensing modalities shows great scientific potential and promises enhanced discrimination capabilities. Hyperspectral remote sensing over scales ranging from regional to global, and object/event-oriented to climatological are of interest.
All relevant passive, active, imaging, and sounding hyperspectral and related remote sensing programs, technologies, missions, field campaigns, signal processing, applications, validation approaches, basic research are welcome. Additionally, research is solicited that addresses the use of current and future measurements for providing products useful for rapid response efforts to phenomena such as downed aircraft, volcanoes, floods, changes in land cover, snow/ice cover, and treaty violations; also atmospheric events such as biomass burning, tropical storms, trace gases, and heavy aerosol events.
