Lenk, ultralight and soon SIG 2014

A little more than two weeks ago, I attended the 1st Chinese-Swiss workshop on space sciences. This workshop, organized by the Swiss Space Center, was held in Lenk in the Swiss Alps. It has been a great opportunity to meet scientists and to discover Chinese projects regarding space missions…

In a different kind, last Friday I had the opportunity to do a flight in ultralight. This flight was part of the Leman-Baikal project that use hyperspectral remote sensing. The idea is to investigate the possibilities that exist to use the dataset for mapping terrestrial surfaces…

Finally, from tomorrow I’ll be in Paris for the SIG 2014 conference, as announced previously. My presentation on GIS in planetary exploration is ready!

SIG 2014 in October


A quick post to mention that I will take part in the SIG 2014 conference. This conference organized by ESRI, the software editor of ArcGIS that I use to manage my data (see the screenshot below), will be held in Versailles the 1st and 2nd of October. I will give a talk on the use of GIS (Geographic Information System) in the context of planetary exploration.

Next post tomorrow for the publication of my last paper!

A little more than two weeks ago, the WHISPERS 2014 (Workshop on Hyperspectral Image and Signal Processing: Evolution in Remote Sensing) conference ended (yes, I didn’t took the time to write about it before today!). The conference was held here, in Lausanne, at the Swiss Tech Center on the campus of EPFL.

I had the opportunity to organize and chair a special session dedicated to the processing of hyperspectral data in the context of planetary exploration on Wednesday. Five talks were scheduled, allowing us to take a little trip in the solar system:
