Posted by SDIM / June   16, 2015 / News

RADI, together with Sanya Municipal People’s Government, will convene International Symposium on Earth Observation for Maritime Silk Road (EMSR) in Sanya, Hainan, from 25 to 27 November 2015. The symposium is aimed to boost the communication and cooperation in space technologies among the countries along the Maritime Silk Road and discuss the potential contributions of earth observation technologies that could make towards the establishment of a platform for high-level exchange between academics, research scientists and resource management practitioners.

Taking the advantages of Hainan and Sanya's geographic location as strategic strongholds along the 21stCentury Maritime Silk Road Initiative and RADI’s strength in earth observation science and technologies, the symposium will focus on the theme of “Earth Observations for Maritime Silk Road Initiative”. The symposium will include presentations and discussions on a number of themes, including digital earth and spatial information infrastructure, coastal and marine ecosystems, resources and environment, harbour and port cities development, disaster risk reduction, natural and cultural heritage, and tourism. The organizing committee has invited renowned experts and scholars to attend the symposium, in order to enhance its exchanges and cooperation between universities, research institutions and policy makers and resource managers at home and abroad, thereby creating a favourable platform for international communication and collaboration.
