Summary

The International Conference “Remote Sensing of Environment: Scientific and Applied Research in Asia-Pacific” (RSAP-2013) was hosted by the Far-Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (FEB RAS) and Institute of Automation and Control Processes, by the Far-Eastern Federal University (FEFU) and School of Natural Sciences, by the Nevelskoy Maritime State University, and by the Primorsky Krai Regional Administration. The Conference official sponsor was the Software and Services Group, INTEL Corporation. The Conference was held in the FEFU Science Library on September 24-27, 2013.

In the recent years, the Russian Far-East, Pacific frontier of Russia, saw significant successes achieved in the field of the Earth remote sensing. Many problems which are solved using remotely sensed data are common for the neighboring Asia-Pacific countries. Organization of data acquisition, centralized storage, and exchange is the problem of extraordinary urgency. For this reason the First International Conference ‘Remote Sensing of Environment: Scientific and Applied Research in Asia-
Pacific’ (RSAP-2013) was mainly focused on fostering international cooperation by discussion of new findings and problems in observation, modeling, and monitoring of environment based on remote sensing technologies.

The main themes of the Conference were as follows:

These themes are in line with the principle goals of the FEB RAS Integrated Scientific Program ‘Satellite Monitoring in the Russian Far East for the Fundamental Scientific Research’, 2012–2016, and to the Summary of the International Scientific & Applied APEC Conference ‘Data Centers and Network Cooperation in the Remote Sensing Technologies and Applications’ held in Vladivostok, October 16-17, 2012.

The Russian Far East urgently needs application of remote sensing technologies for promotion of economical and social growth. The Northwest Pacific is the continuation of the Northern Sea Route, the shortest marine route connecting Asia and Europe, which is extremely important for the Southeast Asia countries.

Participants of the Conference

132 participants from 10 countries and many Russian regions, from Kaliningrad to Kamchatka, took part in the Conference. Among them were the leading scientists from the neighbouring Asia-Pacific countries:

During the Conference the leading scientists in the field of remote sensing gave a number of lectures for undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate students and young scientists. The lecturers were

The vivid panel and informal discussions demonstrated a growing interest in the application of remote sensing for scientific research and industrial/commercial activities in the Asia-Pacific Region.

 

Conference Resolution

The Conference Resolution was unanimously approved at the Conference Plenary Session on September 27, 2013.

Conferece events

Within the conference there were plenary and section sessions on various topics. Also there was two round tables where tasks, problems and perspectives were actively discussed. The wide cultural program was held in addition to official program of the conference. In the program there were bus excursions to Russkiy island, campus of FEFU, Vladivostok city. Also there was a banquet and marine trip at the Peter the Great bay on a comfortable boat called "Hamadori".
