MC-5 meeting and Final Conference in the International agricultural research and training centre (IARTC) Menemen-Izmir, Turkey 26-28 September 2022.
The core writing team met in the Image Processing Laboratory (IPL) of the University of Valencia, Spain 18-22 July 2022.
Workshop “Trends in time-series analysis of remotely sensed vegetation productivity” in School of Agriculture (ISA), University of Lisbon Lisbon, Portugal 12-14 April 2022.
On the 28-30 of March, we will have our next WG3-Workshop organized by Shawn and Luisa in University of Barcelona, Spain. For the moment, we plan to have it in person, hoping the pandemic allows for this, but we will recheck a few weeks before the event (if you book a flight or room please check for cancellation options). We have funding for 15 participants and we would like to discuss the listed topics during the workshop, which are the outcome of the breakout group during the MC meeting in Bucharest. The plan is also to prepare guidelines for the use of sensor synergies for stress detection in agriculture and have an exchange with companies. Please send an email to email@example.com with a topic for a presentation if you like to participate. Hope to see you in Barcelona!

- Technical challenges with sensor synergies. For example the definition of ROIs: ROI of the crops could be the same for all sensors or calculated separately because eventually you need to reduce/adapt the ROI for a certain sensor…
- Examples for good/practical/efficient ways to combine different sensors
- Indices vs statistical models vs RTMs in the context of sensor synergies
- Shall we develop new indices which combine different sensors within one index like the VHI (veg. health index)?
- The usability and advice for farmers/stakeholders based on our developed methods and products
- Next generation of sensor synergies. What is the potential for sensor synergies with new satellites or sensors based on UAVs, permanently installed sensors, or IoT?

Announcement SENSECO WG2 Workshop Toulouse France
Announcement SENSECO WG2 Workshop Toulouse France
Date: 5-7 February 2020
Time: start Wednesday 12:00 till Friday 12:00
Location: CESBIO, Toulouse, France
The general aim of SENSECO WG2 is to improve the time-series processing of satellite sensor data for modelling vegetation processes related to seasonal productivity.
This workshop aims:
- to introduce the state-of-the-art methods for time-series analysis,
- to discuss recent procedures for gap-filling and fusion of satellite data with high-resolution data-sources,
- to practice hands-on time-series analysis with available toolboxes for a selection of datasets.
The workshop and follow-up actions will be adopted to prepare material for the Senseco training school in the summer of 2020.
The official invitation through eCOST and the detailed program with hotel and travel information will be announced by the end of November.
From the SENSECO MC, a budget has been foreseen for 14 persons for which hotel and travelling can be reimbursed.
The selection of these persons will be based on order of registration by sending an email to email@example.com stating name and organization.
MC-3 meeting and joint working group (WG1, WG2, WG3, WG4) workshop
The meeting was be held 28-30 October 2019 at Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain.
The SENSECO team had a very exciting meeting including a keynote talk given by Matthias Drusch from ESA and brillant talks organised by the four working groups.
WG1 workshop focus on “SIF, NPQ, APAR, and Thermal scaling up approaches/protocols and its integration in RTM”.
The workshop will be hosted in Budapest city center on the 26-27 September 2019.
Several scientists have already confirmed their participation, SIF (Dr. Marco Celesti), NPQ (Dra. Shari Wittenberghe and Kelvin Acebron), Thermal (Dra. Monica Garcia), RTM (Dr. Christiaan van der Tol, Dr. Jochem Verrelst, and Dr. Zbynek Malenovsky), and Cal/Val protocol (Dr. Roberto Colombo). We are still missing scientists with expertise in APAR. If you have this expertise and are interested in collaborate with us, please, contact me with your idea/proposal and we will include you in the workshop program.
During the next days we will send an official cost invitation. Later on we will send you the information about transportation and hotel arrangement.
SENSECO MC-2 and joint working group (WG1, WG2, WG3 and WG4) workshop
The event will take place 25-27 March 2019 at the University of Aveiro (Building 25), Aveiro, Portugal. We will start 25 March at 14:30 and will close 27 March before lunch time.

Core group meeting in Brno
Time: Tuesday 5 February 2018 14-18 hrs
Location: Brno City centre, hotel BWP Premier (https://www.hotelinternational.cz/en/)
Date: Monday January 28, 2019
Time: 10:00 -18:00
Location: Netherlands, Wageningen, Wageningen Campus
The general aim of SENSECO WG2 is to improve the time-series processing of satellite sensor data for modelling vegetation processes related to seasonal productivity. To initiate WG2, we would like to organize this kick-off meeting which will focus on making inventory and exchanging experience in time-series processing. In this way we would like to get:
1) an overview of available expertise of WG2 participants;
2) an overview of relevant long-term satellite time-series, time-series processing approaches and toolboxes.
This meeting and follow-up actions should lead to the development of standardized protocols for processing of time-series satellite data.
The official invitation through eCOST and the detailed program will be announced by the end of November.
From the SENSECO MC, a budget has been foreseen for 8 persons for which travelling can be reimbursed. The selection of these persons will be based on order of registration by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating name and organization.
This list has been send to the members of the MC who have indicated that they are interested to participate in this WG.
Announcement Kick-off meeting WG3 SENSECO - Sensor synergies
Date: Tuesday February 05, 2019
Time: 09:00 -13:00
Location: Brno, Czech Republic, hotel BWP Premier (https://www.hotelinternational.cz/en/)
Multi-sensor or synergistic sensor use will provide a deeper insight into the relations between spectral features and associated plant conditions. Working Group 3 aims to help realize synergies between passive optical EO domains.
- Introduction into the topic
- Overview on the expertise and sensors used from the WG3 participants
- On which concrete topics do we like to work on? Plant stresses with different sensors? Which kind of stresses?
- Will we use or even acquire (as part of a training for example) a common data set from different sensors?
- What will be the next event?
First aims and deliverables for WG3 are best practice protocols and guidelines for synergistic use of multi-sensor approaches.
From the SENSECO MC, a budget has been foreseen for 8 persons for which travelling can be reimbursed. The selection of these persons will be based on order of registration by sending an email to email@example.com stating name and organization.
