The workshop will offer opportunities for the participants to showcase their research (e.g., virtual Pre-recorded (PR) research talks, abstract <200 words, 5 minutes), discuss topics of joint interest and regional importance (e.g.,  Country surveys, flash talks by country, 3-5 min. each, on June 16), and foster collaborations with experts and colleagues from the region. We invite your contributions to the PR research talks and Country surveys, to inform on the remote sensing hot topics in SCERIN and MedRIN.
