Small Unmanned Aerial Systems for Environmental Research

28-29th June 2016

University of Worcester, UK

Dear colleagues,

We invite you to attend a two-day conference which will bring together academics, practitioners and those with an interest in working with small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) for environmental monitoring and research. This conference follows previously successful events held in Liverpool (2015), Exeter (2014) and Worcester (2013), and will include keynote addresses (speakers to be announced shortly), oral presentations, interactive poster sessions and an exhibition of sUAS service providers.

Abstract submission NOW OPEN!

Abstracts are invited for oral and poster presentations, on a range of environmental topics, including but not limited to:

  • Terrestrial applications – such as geomorphology, natural hazards, glaciology, archaeology, ecology, conservation, terrain assessment, agriculture, forestry, geology & geophysics.
  • Hydrological applications – such river science, hydrology, coastal & marine.
  • Atmospheric applications – such as aerobiology.
  • Practicalities of data collection using sUAS (including licensing and flight regulations)
  • Processing and analysis of sUAS data (including photogrammetry and structure from motion)

Email 300 word abstracts to by 15th April 2016, including author names and affiliations, contact details and preference for oral or poster presentation. Confirmation of abstract acceptance will be provided to authors in early May 2016.


Opens early April 2016. Fees will include attendance, conference materials, all refreshments and a sandwich lunch on both days. Please register in advance of the conference, as places will not be available on the day.
