AIT 2018 – CALL FOR PAPERS – Submit your Abstract by end of March 2018


The IX Conference of the Italian Society of Remote Sensing
AIT – Associazione Italiana di Telerilevamento

From space to land management
remote sensing technologies supporting
sustainable development and natural
resource management

4 – 6 July 2018

Hosted by the University of Florence, the conference is an important event to stimulate the cooperation between research institutions, remote sensing users and industry.


AIT2018 offers a relevant audience to present the results of your research and to maximise the scientific impact of your contributions. Full papers can be published in indexed proceddings as well as in a special issue of the European Journal of Remote Sensing (IF2016: 1.533). More infos here.

Explore the wide themes covered by the conference, and if you have a specific idea send us a proposal for a special session (for example resulting from a project or a working group). To do so compile this form and send it to

Submit your abstract by end of March 2018 to the conference, as soon as you will receive the acceptance from the peer review process proceed to register. If you will register before end of May 2018 you will benefit of early bird fees.
