Summer School

The deadline for applications has been extended to 30th April, 2015. Please note that the application order will be taken into account in prioritizing the available seats. A new call will be issued soon.

The "Pavia 2015 International Summer School on Data Fusion for Risk Mapping" is the fifth in a series of International Summer Schools on Data Fusion held in Pavia, Italy, all of which were very successful and appreciated. This edition will merge into the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society 2015 Summer School (GR4S), on the occasion of the IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium 2015, or IGARSS 2015 – “Remote Sensing: Understanding the Earth for a Safer World.” IGARSS 2015 will be held the following week (July 26-31) in Milan.

The GR4S aims at providing to the attending students an opportunity to gain excellent introductory knowledge on:

  • the exploitation of remotely sensed from different sources for purposes of mapping risk and its components, i.e. hazard, vulnerability, exposure, in a geospatial environment;
  • QGIS open-source tools and environment for geospatial information handling.

More information will be available on the School web site, currently under construction. A moderate registration fee is foreseen, and budget accommodation options will be offered to interested attendees.
