New article published by “Computers & Geosciences”: the R package “sen2r”

sen2r is an R package developed by the Institute of Remote Sensing of Environment (IREA) of the Italian National Research Council, with the aim to simplify and speed up several steps commonly needed to process Sentinel-2 data. Recently, an important recognition to the worth and usefulness of this tool came from the ISI journal Computers & Geosciences, publishing the scientific paper “sen2r”: An R toolbox for automatically downloading and preprocessing Sentinel-2 satellite data.

Up to the 14th of May 2020, it is possible to get free access to the manuscript at this link:

The 10th AIT International Conference

COVID-19: in the light of the COVID-19 crisis, AIT with deep regret officially announces that the X AIT International Conference to be held in Cagliari, Italy, has been postponed to 2021.

Dear all,

we have not taken this decision lightly, but given recent developments and guidance from various national and international bodies, it is the only decision we felt we could take.

All submitted abstracts, if desired, will be considered for the next year.

We will update all the deadlines, as the general situation will be clear.

Sponsors and exhibitors are encouraged to maintain their involvement in the AIT Conference even though it is postponed by one year.

We would like to express our appreciation to all those who have committed countless hours to what promised to be an exciting AIT2020 Conference. This includes our colleagues with the members of our conference committee.

We wish you, your families and loved ones all the best for the months ahead and look forward to seeing you at the AIT 2021 Conference on our wonderful Island next year.
