AIT2020: Conference Posponed

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.

On behalf of the AIT President and all the Council.

Special Issue in Remote Sensing in Water Management and Hydrology

tejr20.v051.i01.cover_IF2018The European Journal of Remote Sensing just opened a new special issue in Remote Sensing in Water Management and Hydrology.

Topics of interest include but are not restricted to:

  • Various applications of hydrology to water resources management
  • Effective utilization of remote sensing data in planning, design and operation of water resource systems
  • Integrating remote sensing and hydrological model to calculate water navigation and distribution
  • Need for remote sensing techniques to monitor water pollution
    Importance of remote sensing as a guide to earth observation
  • A study on the potential of water harvesting using Hydrologic remote sensing techniques
  • A review of remote sensing based methods for surface water monitoring
  • Future trends of pattern recognition in remote sensing of water related resources
  • A comparative study of remote sensing and hydrology in Groundwater exploration for water supply purposes
  • Role of remote sensing methodologies in flood forecasting and control
  • Opportunities and challenges of hydrological remote sense modeling for irrigation management

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.

Risorsa 2


the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society is willing to  sponsor a best contribution award, to be awarded to a young researcher (≤ 35 years), preferably a GRSS member, who is the first author of a contribution accepted at the conference, on the basis of the contribution content and his/her presentation. The awardee will be selected by the Scientific Committee of the conference, and the award will consist in a certificate and a honorarium of 300€.
