Due Date: August 30, 2019
Applications are open for the UN-SPIDER Bonn International Conference 2019: “Space-based Solutions for Catastrophe Management in Africa: Obstacles, Applications, Collaborations”. The International Conference intends to add to an increased usage of huge area information methods and satellite-based application in African nations to react to difficulties presented by natural risks.
The conference is arranged by the United Nations Workplace for Deep Space Affairs (UNOOSA), through its UN-SPIDER program, and the Center for Remote Sensing of Land Surfaces (ZFL) at the University of Bonn, in cooperation with the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and with the assistance of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi).
Goals and Anticipated Results
More particularly, the occasion intends to:
- Display current advances and determine difficulties to using space-based details, huge information methods and expert system methods such as artificial intelligence in catastrophe management in Africa.
- Present and supply a hands-on experience of space-based applications through tutorials on technical options varying from standalone desktop bundles to cloud computing environments that assist in the access to and usage of space-based information and details items for catastrophe management.
- Develop on the results of UNOOSA worldwide conferences and seminar to determine capacity-building requirements and chances relating to complete usage of the increasing quantity of space-based details and brand-new methods to gain access to, integrate, procedure, examine and provide the information.
- Offer an online forum to go over collaborations to assist in access to information and applications customized to the requirements of catastrophe management stakeholders in Africa.
- Due to moneying restrictions, the organizers will have the ability to provide assistance to just a minimal variety of individuals from Member States. The assistance will settle the expense of travel (round-trip ticket– most financial fare– in between the airport of worldwide departure in their nation of home and Bonn, Germany) and/or space and board costs throughout the period of the occasion.
- Open to personnel from nationwide, local, and worldwide public and personal companies and organizations.
