SAIL35 symposium 'Eye on Foliage'

On the occasion of Wout Verhoef’s retirement at the end of this year, the SAIL 35 symposium will be celebrating the 35th anniversary of the widely used SAIL model, in Enschede, The Netherlands on 27 and 28 September 2016.

SAIL is a computer model for calculation of the bidirectional reflectance of vegetation canopies, created by Wout in 1981, and first presented at the 'Spectral Signatures Colloquium' in Avignon that year. The first article about this model in the journal Remote Sensing of Environment appeared in 1984 and this was followed by a long series of other articles that discussed various applications and sail extensions of the model. In this symposium we will mostly look forward, and recent theories and applications of radiative transfer in vegetation remote sensing will be presented.

Registration and abstract submission can be done through the following website: The symposium fee of 150€ (100€ for registration before 10 July) covers lunch, a conference dinner, icebreaker and excursion.
