11th International Symposium on digital Earth – ISDE 11

About the Symposium:

The Florence Division of the Institute of Atmospheric Pollution Research (CNR-IIA) is pleased to invite you to the 11th International Symposium on Digital Earth (ISDE 11), from the 24th to the 27th of September 2019, in Florence (Italy). The choice of the Renaissance city, as the meeting venue, was not accidental but the natural frame to debate the challenging Symposium theme: “Digital Earth in a Transformed Society“. The meeting will celebrate the completion of the first 20 years of the International Symposium on Digital Earth (held first in 1999 in Beijing), and provide the first opportunity to introduce and discuss the future role of Digital Earth in a changing World -considering the Digital Transformation that effects our entire Society.




Call for Abstracts

The Symposium will be a great opportunity to attract the European scientific and industrial communities working on Digital Earth technologies and applications, potentially increasing their involvement in the Digital Earth vision elaboration and realization.

Submission Deadline: January 31ST, 2019


Call for Special Sessions

You take an active part in organizing the scientific programme of the 11th International Symposium on Digital Earth (ISDE 11) by suggesting special sessions on selected topics until Sept. 15th, 2018. A Special Session should focus on a specific topic of interest but not limited to the general interdisciplinary themes identified by the ISDE11 SPC and below listed.

Submission Deadline: SEPTEMBER 30TH, 2019



Call for Sponsors and Exhibitors

The ISDE 11 Symposium offers an outstanding opportunity for exhibitors and sponsors to maximize their visibility within a very large scientific and industrial community working on Digital Earth technologies and applications, potentially increasing their involvement in the Digital Earth vision elaboration and realization.

We welcome sponsorship applications from all organisations with an interest in advancing excellence in this field.

The European Network for Observing Our Changing Planet (ERA-PLANET) Consortium will held a Side-Event
at the GEO WEEK 2018 in Kyoto, Japan on 30 October 2018.
In the last decade asignificant number of projects and programmes in different domains of environmental monitoring and Earth observation have generated a substantial amount of data and knowledge on different aspects related to environmental quality and sustainability. Big data generated by in-situ or satellite platforms are being collected and archived with a plethora of systems and instruments making difficult the sharing of data and knowledge to stakeholders and policy makers for supporting key economic and societal sectors. The overarching goal of ERA-PLANET is to strengthen the European Research Area in the domain of Earth Observation in coherence with the European participation to Group on Earth Observation (GEO) and the Copernicus.

GEO Week 2018 is a relevant event, organized by the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), an intergovernmental organization working to improve the availability, access and use of Earth observations for the benefit of society, that will be held in the Kyoto International Conference Center (ICC Kyoto) – Japan, from 29 October to 2 November 2018.


The GEO Week 2018 and the GEO-XV Plenary are going to gather GEO’s 105 Member governments and 127 Participating Organizations, including the delegation of Italian representatives, to explore efforts and opportunities for the use of Earth observations for the benefit of humankind, focusing on GEO’s three priority areas:


– the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
– the Paris Climate Agreement
– and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.



Join the GEO community in Kyoto, Japan!

ERA-PLANET Kick-Off meeting of the four funded projects

ERA-PLANET, “the European Network for Observing our Changing Planet” is a network of 36 partner organizations from 14 European countries and one associated country, coordinated by the CNR-IIA, aiming at strengthening the European Research Area in the domain of Earth Observation in coherence with the European participation to Group on Earth Observations (GEO) and the Copernicus programme.

The Network promotes the use of tools and technologies to make better decisions based on data from the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS).

The ERA-PLANET Call, based on a two-step process, has selected the four best innovative and competitive projects namely SMURBS, GEO Essential, IGOSP and iCUPE.

The Kick-Off meeting of the four projects, funded under ERA-PLANET, will be held in Rome at the CNR Headquarter for the first two days (9-10 October) and for the third day (11 October) the meeting will move to Montelibretti research area in the North of Rome as indicated in the agenda details.
