2016 Systems and Technologies for Remote Sensing Applications Through Unmanned Aerial Systems (STRATUS) Workshop.

A one day workshop held in the Louise Slaughter Hall, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY

Overview: The emergence of low-cost and easy-to-use Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), commonly referred to as drones, has lead to an explosion of their use for numerous applications. In particular, these new platforms have enabled new imaging and earth remote sensing technologies and applications previously unavailable due to the high cost of manned aircraft or satellites. This workshop will bring together academics, industry representatives, and domain specialists to share perspectives on this rapidly evolving topic.

Paper Submission: The workshop will have a two-track submission process for program consideration. The first track is for authors wishing to present a full paper to be published in the proceedings, which will be archived in IEEE Xplore. A four-page IEEE style paper is required and will undergo a full peer-review process. The second track is for workshop participants who desire to share their work during the conference without submitting a full paper. This second track will require an abstract only for program consideration. Program will include both oral and poster sessions, as well as breaks for networking, browsing exhibits and live demonstrations.
