The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and University at Buffalo (UB) Information Products Laboratory for Emergency Response (IPLER) and the UB Center for Geohazards Studies are pleased to announce a joint workshop on the application of remote sensing for disaster response and the science of geohazards, to be held May 30-June 1, 2012, at the RIT campus in Rochester, NY. Disaster can strike anywhere and at any time and place; however, our "geospatial response" to disasters can be improved through the use of remote sensing technology and knowledge of geohazard phenomenology. The RIT-UB IPLER program seeks to stimulate innovation in the remote sensing industry by (i) working with the disaster response community to understand their information needs and operational limitations, (ii) introducing them to the capabilities of remote sensing technology, and (iii) conducting research to improve our response to and mitigation of disaster events.
