2015 36th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing (CRSS)

In partnership with The Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University (Marine Institute), the 36th Annual Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing will take place in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada on June 8-11, 2015.

This years’ theme "Exploring Synergies" highlights the important role that remote sensing fosters in terms of linkages between sectors, disciplines, and areas, as well as the connections between exploration and resource development in the strong provincial economy. The theme underscores the synergies amongst industry, government, and academic sectors; oceanic and terrestrial science; and the cross-fertilization of remote sensing and related disciplines and applications. The rich and diverse cultural mosaic of the host city also underlies the theme.
