Image Information Mining Conference: Knowledge Discovery from Earth Observation Data
24-26 October 2012
German Aerospace Center (DLR), Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany
Earth Observation (EO) data has increased significantly over the last decades with sensors collecting terabytes of data per day. Meanwhile, the advent of sub-meter resolution Optical and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensors brought new dimensions to application areas with the consequence that the observed details has grown exponentially. Moreover, decades of EO image time series will be continued in the future describing land cover and/or scene evolution and dynamics. With plans for more missions and higher resolution EO systems, the challenge is increasingly going to be how to augment the usability of the millions of images being collected to a larger and larger group of end user applications (e.g., climate change, security, land use, etc.).
The main topics addressed by the conference are: image information mining, image indexing models, image semantic automatic annotation, multi-modal and multi-sensor information extraction, multi-temporal analysis, analysis and integration of metadata, information semantics and the semantic web, advanced statistics, probabilistic reasoning, data base management systems and visualization,ontologies, semantic and knowledge representation, learning paradigms for very large data sets, spatial and/or temporal queries, search engines, human-machine communication, knowledge discovery in databases. Contributions that demonstrate results on very large EO data sets (e.g. Terrabytes to Petabytes) are encouraged.
The main target audience includes the European space agencies and organisations, aerospace industry and research centres, research and academic institutions, commercial companies, value adders or service providers involved in any of above areas.
Participation to the Conference and the Tutorials is free of charge up to available seats.
