Le colloque MDIS-2019 est organisé à La Petite-Pierre / Hôtel "Aux Trois Roses". L'hébergement et les repas sont pris en charge par l'organisation. Le colloque comprend trois sessions thématiques et suppose la soumission de résumés courts.

Programme and details of the Conference sessions

Wednesday 16 October 2019

14h00: Arrival at La Petite-Pierre and lunch

15h30: Workshop – Session 1: Satellite signal processing for information retrieval

This session will discuss explorative algorithms to improve information retrieval from remote sensing data (satellite and ground-based). The topic encompasses atmospheric corrections, noise reduction and non-local filtering, robust estimation of deformation, sparse signal analysis, SAR and optical data inversion, and data mining of large image datasets.

Invited speakers: Francesco de Zan (German Aerospace Survey/DLR, Köln, Germany): "Closure phases and biases in InSAR products"

                             Rowena Lohman (Cornell University, Ithaca, US): "Contrasts in the InSAR soil moisture response in different hyperarid environments"


19h30: Cocktail and dinner

21h30: Keynote speaker: Ferran Gascon (ESA/Esrin, Frascati, Italy): "Copernicus Sentinel-2 mission status"


Thursday 17 October 2019:

9h00 – 12h30: Workshop – Session 2: Geophysical interpretation of the deformation I

This session will discuss the analysis of deformation information for an impoved understanding of the processes shaping the Earth relief. The session will particularly focus on 1) techniques to detect tectonic, volcanic, gravitational and reservoir deformation signals and separate them from other deformation sources (e.g. hydrological, thermoelastic, anthropogenic), and 2) the modeling and interpretation of the physical mechanisms producing the deformation. The session is organized in three sub-topics:

Sub-Topic Deformation I: Tectonic, seismic and volcanic deformation processes (e.g. coseismic slip, viscoelastic relaxation, poroelastic rebound, slow slip events, long-term creep, gravity-driven postseismic deformation, dyke injection).

Invited speaker: Tim Wright (University of Leeds, UK): "What have we learned about faults from three decades of tectonic InSAR?"


12h30 – 14h00: Lunch


14h00 – 16h00: Workshop – Session 2: Geophysical interpretation of the deformation II

Sub-topic Deformation II: Surface deformation processes (e.g. landslides, glacier, permafrost, mining)

Invited speaker 1: Antoine Dille (RMCA & ULB, Brussels, Belgium): "Dynamics of slow-moving landslides from dense InSAR time series: insights from a tropical urban environment”

Invited speaker 2: Ludivine Libert (ENVEO, Innsbruck, Austria): "Status and challenges for monitoring ice motion and deformation with satellite constellations”

16h30 – 18h30: Workshop – Session 2: Geophysical interpretation of the deformation III

Sub-topic Deformation III: Reservoir deformation processes (storage reservoir, water extraction, geothermal exploitation).

Invited speakers: Alessio Rucci & Alessandro Ferretti (TRE-Altamira, Milano, Italy): "InSAR for reservoir geomechanical analyses"


19h30: Dinner

21h00: Animation – Night walk


Friday 18 october 2019:

9h00 – 12h30: Workshop – Session 3: Platforms for massive big data processing.

This session will discuss current and future satellite missions for the spatial geodesy community. The following topics will be discussed during the presentations or round table: status of recent satallite missions, responses to the science and opertational community needs, specificities of the data, future missions of interest. The session will also present and review the on-line processing services available for Earth big data analysis and massive processing.

Keynote speaker: pending


12h30 – 14h00 : Lunch

14h00 – 15h30 : Round-table

16h00: Travel back to Strasbourg (train station, airport)
