The SAR Analytics Symposium will feature analytical thought leaders and provide a unique meeting place for SAR service providers and applied SAR analytics consumers.

Attendees will glean knowledge and ideas from other successful real-world analytical applications, all while sitting in the beautiful surroundings of Europe`s capital of History and Heritage, Rome. Attendance for the symposium is limited to 120 people in order to provide high-quality interaction and participation. All the programme will be presented in English language.




The free and open access to synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data from the European Space Agency`s Sentinel-1 satellite since 2014, together with the launches of an increasing number of SAR systems aboard small satellites over the past year underscores the enormous role this remote sensing technology will play in the future of Earth Observation. For established SAR consumers, as well as organizations already benefiting from remotely sensed optical data looking to add SAR derived information to their GIS, these launches serve notice that a deluge of complex new data will soon arrive, presenting many commercial and operational benefits.

As a community of users, analysts, and solution providers, we must continue to find innovative ways to collect, process, and analyze SAR data, but even more importantly to create solutions that deliver real value. The SAR analytics symposium provides the leading thought leadership venue for participants to connect with decisionmakers from across the community, explore new trends and ideas, and transform this fast-growing and dynamic technology ecosystem.

Topics will include:

  • The present and Future of spaceborne SAR
  • Leveraging SAR derived information for Environment and Agriculture
  • Detecting change over time with extreme levels of accuracy
  • Understanding infrastructure and land displacements
  • Democratization of SAR: Accessing information from SAR data trough SAR service platforms

Stay at the five star

Radisson Blu es. Hotel, Rome

The SAR Analytics Symposium will be held at The Radisson Blu Hotel in central Rome. The The Radisson Blu is a contemporary 5 Star hotel, built in 2002 in the heart of Rome and it is the first hotel to feature modern Italian design in the heart of late 19th century Umbertine Rome. When construction of the hotel began, remains of an Ancient Roman road were unearthed so architects Jeremy King and Riccardo Roselli altered the original design to include the archaeological finding within the hotel: The Radisson Blu is a place where ancient history meets the contemporary concept of hospitality and accommodation. Conference hospitality, including coffee breaks, lunch, an evening cocktail reception and a 3 course dinner in the rooftop restaurant will be all included with the delegate fee, so make sure you book your room at the Radisson Blu Hotel too.

Discounted rates are available for the SAR Analytics Symposium through August 31, 2019. Click here to reserve your room.
