Introduction
Processing of multi-temporal images and spatio-temporal geo-spatial information for change
detection and spatio-temporal modelling of earth processes have been active research and
application fields in remote sensing and geo-spatial information sciences for decades.
Although plenty successful applications have been reported on the monitoring and detecting
of environmental change, there are enormous challenges in applying multi-temporal imagery
to derive timely information on, and in representing spatio-temporal phenomena of, the
Earth‟s environment and human activities. In recent years, great progress has been observed
to overcome technological obstacles by the development of new platforms and sensors. The
wider availability of large archives of historical images also makes it possible for long-term
change detection and spatio-temporal modelling. Such a development stimulates further
investigations to develop more advanced image and geo-spatial information processing
methods and new approaches to handling image and geographical data in the time dimension.

The aim of the workshop is to further enhance international collaboration and scholar
exchange in the field of remote sensing change detection and spatio-temporal modelling. The
focus also extends to the study of geo-process modelling using long-term remotely sensed
and geographical data. It is endeavored to promote and encourage collaborated efforts for the
development of new technology for processing multi-temporal imagery, detecting changing
environment and objects, and modelling long-term geo-processes.
Themes of the Symposium
      Change detection using remotely sensed imagery and GIS

      Computer assisted interpretation and analysis of multi-temporal data

      Multi-temporal data analysis for extraction of attribute information

      Object tracking and monitoring

      Extracting essential climate variables from long-term satellite observations

      Global monitoring, modelling and prediction

      Real-time monitoring and information services

      Integration of multi-source, multi-scale and multi-temporal data for spatio-temporal
       representations and modelling

      Spatio-temporal representation and modelling

      Spatio-temporal pattern recognition and time series analysis and modeling

      Spatio-temporal visualization

      Web-based systems for spatio-temporal representation



Symposium Format
The symposium will follow a single session format including invited presentations, sequential
technical sessions and poster sessions. It is intended to allocate at least 25 minute for each
oral presentation allowing time for discussion. The poster sessions will be held with short
presentations to encourage more extensive discussions within all participants.

Publication
All papers will be published in the Symposium proceedings in a CD, which all participants
will receive during the symposium. Limited hardcopies will be produced for ISPRS archive.
Selected papers will be further expanded and peer-reviewed after the symposium for the
publication in special issues of international journals.
