In the end of January, dr. Marinoni has been invited by prof. Jocelyn Chanussot and prof. Christian Jutten to visit Gipsa-Lab at Grenoble INP, Grenoble, France, to give a talk on recent advancements in hypergeometric analysis for nonlinear pattern recognition, with special focus to multimodal and multisource remote sensing-based applications. This event has been developed as part of the framework of the ERC Advanced Project “Chess”, managed by prof. Jutten.

Prof Alejandro C. Frery, a distinguished lecturer of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, and the current Vice Rector for Research of the Universidade Federal de Alagoas (Brazil) is coming to visit the laboratory in early March (March 6 to 9). Thanks to the support by ERASMUS Overseas, he will be able to teach a short course on "Statistical analysis of SAR images", in line with his recently transmitted webinar.

Prof. Gamba paid a visit to Ben Gurion University of the Negev in Israel in last December, and had a plenary talk in the Israeli Geographer Association Annual meeting. The event was sponsored by the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society.

The lectures of the meeting (including the two by Prof, Gamba) are available at

 On 9th January, the local newspaper "La Provincia Pavese" has published an article reporting the accession of the Telecommunication and Remote Sensing Lab to the "FabSpace 2.0" network. This latter is a network of laboratories committed to open innovation based on geospatial and space data in the context of Universities 2.0; a one-stop shop-access to space-related data as well as free software and processing tools to develop new digital applications. The article (in Italian) can be read at:

FabSpace 2.0 è la rete europea per l’innovazione basata sulle nuove tecnologie satellitari di osservazione della Terra e sull’evoluzione che queste apportano alla produzione, elaborazione e analisi di dati geospaziali a livello globale.

Finanziato dal programma-quadro europeo Horizon 2020, il progetto FabSpace 2.0 mira ad avviare una serie di centri cooperanti – i FabSpace, appunto – orientati alla pubblica fruizione e dedicati allo sviluppo di servizi innovativi, nelle “università europee 2.0” e negli incubatori BIC dell’Agenzia Spaziale Europea.
