Announcing AARSE International Conference at the AAST

IEREK is Announcing its latest collaboration with the Arab Academy for Science Technology & Maritime Transport (AASTMT), IEREK is happy to invite the research community and welcomes all interested participants to attend the 12th International Conference of the African Association of Remote Sensing and the Environment. Discussing Earth Observations and Geospatial Science in Service of Sustainable Development Goals, it is to be held from 25 – 29 October 2018. Hurry up and register!


The 12th AARSE International Conference, AARSE 2018, Earth Observations and Geospatial Science in service of Sustainable Development Goals will be held in Alexandria, Egypt, at the Arab Academy of Science and Technology from 25th to 29th of October, 2018.

This conference will be a major event in the African and international community of Earth observation and geospatial information science in 2018; it will be organized by the African Association of Remote Sensing of the Environment (AARSE) and the Arab Academy of Science and Technology, in partnership with the National Authority for Remote Sensing & Space Sciences (NARSS).

AARSE is a non-political scientific organization. Its primary objective is to increase the awareness of African governments and their institutions, the private sector and society at large, about the empowering and enhancing benefits of developing, applying and responsibly utilizing the products and services of Earth Observation Systems and Geo-information Technology. AARSE membership includes professional individuals, institutions and national associations from all over Africa and worldwide working in domains related to remote sensing, photogrammetry, and geographical information science.

The AARSE international conference is conducted biennially across Africa, alternately with the AfricaGIS conference, and is the premier forum in Africa for research on remote sensing technologies and geospatial information science, gathering leading scholars from the remote sensing and related communities. AARSE conference series commenced in 1996, in Harare (Zimbabwe) and has been held in Abidjan (Cote D’Ivoire) in 1998, Cape Town (South Africa) in 2000, Abuja (Nigeria) in 2002, Nairobi (Kenya) in 2004, Cairo (Egypt) in 2006, Accra (Ghana) in 2008, Addis Abeba (Ethiopia) in 2010, El Jadida (Morocco) in 2012, Johannesburg (South Africa) in 2014, and in Kampala (Ouganda) in 2016.

The main objective of AARSE 2018 is to bring together scholars and professionals from the African and international community to present latest achievements, discuss challenges and share experiences. The conference program will feature keynote speeches delivered by leading scholars, technical sessions with reports of the latest research outcomes, discussion sessions on operational topics such as capacity building, Spatial Data Infrastructure (SDI), space policy, programmes and projects, as well as commercial exhibitions showing latest products and services in remote sensing and geospatial information technologies.

Paper selection is based on extended abstract and full paper peer review following the guidelines provided in the “Call for Paper” document that can be downloaded from the conference website: www.aarse2018.org
