ISPRS/ESPI/IAA/IISL Conference, 8/9 April: Current legal issues for satellite Earth observation

The ISPRS/ESPI/IAA/IISL conference on Current legal issues for satellite Earth observation will be held on 8-9 April at ESPI in Vienna, and will address two important and topical aspects of satellite Earth observation:

  • treaty monitoring and law enforcement through satellite Earth observation;
  • privacy conflicts from high resolution imagery.

It brings together experts from the remote sensing and legal fields. It i.a. aims at decision-makers in the field of treaty monitoring and international law enforcement (foreign and environment ministries, international organizations). This provides the unique opportunity to discuss the different implications stemming from technology developments and applications as well as from legal and regulatory perspectives.

The focus of the discussions at this Conference is to optimise the regulatory framework for satellite Earth observation, thus supporting the full implementation of its potential.
