Abstract Status

The abstract submission was suspended due to the deadline

Abstract Submission

Participation in DES-2018 is open to all individuals interested in or working in the fields of earth observation and geo-information science. For all sub-themes, papers for oral presentation, discussion and poster sessions are invited.

Abstracts received by the deadline will be considered for program placement under the standard peer review process. Late abstracts cannot be accepted due to the large number of submissions and short review schedule. Authors should indicate the sub-theme under which their papers fall.

The DES-2018 Scientific Committee (SC) will organize all accepted abstracts into either oral or interactive poster sessions based upon their potential contribution to the conference and the composition of high-quality sessions.

Only accepted papers that are registered and presented at the conference in El Jadida will be published in the conference proceedings (CD-rom) and be considered for peer-reviewed publication in a dedicated international journal.

Conference languages

The conference will be conducted in English.

Oral Presentations

Keynote presentations of 30 minutes will be given in plenary sessions. There will be no discussion during these sessions. However, those who give a lead paper for a specific theme are encouraged to take part in the subsequent thematic session. Oral presentations in the technical/ scientific sessions must not exceed 15 minutes.

Poster Presentations

Poster preparation and material to be used

The poster session code corresponding to your paper ID will be posted at the top of the board. Authors must use the board with this number when setting up their posters. Posters will be mounted on 90 cm (width) x 150 cm (height) plastic boards - portrait format only. It is requested to use substantial paper sheet (instead of thin cardboard) as posters must be mounted with scotch tape, and not with drawing pins.

Mounting of posters and display

Authors on the assigned board (indicated by a tag showing your paper code) must mount posters in advance of the dedicated poster session (to be confirmed). Authors, according to instructions by the LOC, must also do removal of posters.

Poster Attendance

At least one of the authors is required to attend their poster during scheduled poster sessions to answer questions by the attendees. Photocopies or high quality copies made from the reduced photograph of your poster and additional material may be distributed by the author(s) at the poster site.

Publication of Abstracts and Proceedings

A printed book with all DES-2018 accepted abstracts and a CD-rom containing all extended abstracts received by February, 28, 2017, will be distributed to registered attendees at the registration desk.

Only papers that are presented at the conference by one of the listed authors registered for the conference will appear in the proceedings. The organizers reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Please note that the CD-rom of the conference proceedings does not constitute a refereed publication recognised by international standards. Authors who wish to have their paper considered for publication in a peer-reviewed international journal may indicate so in the submission form. Outstanding papers will be forwarded for consideration for publication in topical international journals.
