Asian Conference on Remote Sensing 2017 - 08/06/2017


The Asian Conference on Remote Sensing (ACRS) is an annual event spearheaded by the Asian Association of Remote Sensing (AARS) – Asia’s largest society of remote sensing scientists and professionals. ACRS-2017 will be held from 23-27 October 2017 at The Ashok Hotel in New Delhi, India. The main theme of the conference is ‘Space Applications: Touching Human Lives’. Around a thousand delegates are expected from India and abroad.

The objective of AARS is to promote remote sensing through exchange of information, mutual cooperation and international understanding and goodwill amongst the member countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Held yearly, one of the major activities of ACRS is to promote remote sensing for the collection and updating of spatial information around the world.

Although the majority of delegates will be from Asian countries, delegates are also expected from other parts of the globe. This conference will bring together students, researchers, scientists, engineers, policymakers, professionals and practitioners from developed and developing countries, both in and around Asia and worldwide. They will share insights into the challenges and opportunities of remote sensing and related geospatial technologies in building resiliency and encouraging inclusive economic growth in one, dynamic Asia. The conference also aims to be a platform for international engagement to ensure that knowledge is generated in partnership with society. The major sub-themes of ACRS 2017 are:

  1. Advanced Polarimetric Methods & Applications
