The Administrative Committee of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society has extended with an unanimous vote the term of Lorenzo Bruzzone as Editor-in-Chief of the prestigious IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Magazine to December, 2017.

Lorenzo Bruzzone is the founder Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Magazine (which is published since 2013).

The Second Prize for the Natural Science Award of Ministry of Education of China in 2014 was awarded to Dr. Chen Yang (currently Associate Professor at the College of Earth Sciences, Jilin University, China).

Dr. Chen Yang spent at RSLab six months during her PhD and six months as Postdoc researches. The paper Yang C, Bruzzone L, et al. “A fuzzy-statistics-based affinity propagation technique for clustering in multispectral images,” IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, 2010, 48(6): 2647-2659 was especially considered for this award. She published two more journal papers as outcome of the work developed in cooperation with RSLab.

The IEEE International Symposium on Geoscience and Remote Sensing 2015 (IGARSS 2015) will be held in the period  July 26-31, 2015 in Milano (Italy).

This is the most important international symposium in remote sensing. More than 2000 scientists are expected to attend the Milano edition. RSLab has a leading role in the organization of the symposium.

The International Workshop on the Analysis of MultiTemporal Remote Sensing Images (MultiTemp 2015) will be held in Annecy (France) in the period July 22-24, 2015. This is the 8th edition of the workshop series that was established and founded from the RSLab in 2001 (first and sixth editions in Trento).

The new Remote Sensing Laboratory (RSLab) web site is now on-line.

The new web site provides better access to the main information related to the activities of the research group and  has a modern and appealing layout.

The European Space Agency’s JUICE (JUpiter ICy moons Explorer) mission has been given the green light to proceed to the next stage of development. This approval is a milestone for the mission, which aims to launch in 2022 to explore Jupiter and its potentially habitable icy moons.

JUICE is the largest mission planned for the exploration of the Solar system in the next 20 years. The Principal Investigator and responsible for the “Radar for Icy Moon Exploration” (RIME) instrument is Lorenzo Bruzzone of DISI. Under the leadership of Prof. Bruzzone, RIME will be developed as a cooperation between Italian Space Agency and NASA.

RSLab has a major role in the mission as Prof. Bruzzone is the Principal Investigator of RIME (Radar for Icy Moon Exploration). RIME is a radar sounder designed to penetrate the icy crust of Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto (Jupiter icy moons) to a depth of about 9 kilometers. RIME will allow scientists to see for the first time the underground structure of these tectonically complex and unique icy worlds and could lead to the direct detection of subsurface water, which is one of the basic ingredients for the identification of life on the Jupiter moons.
