The 3rd BIRDS International Workshop and
The 8th International Workshop for application of satellite data for Mongolian Environment
Abstract submission deadline extended: 20 May, 2018
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
National University of Mongolia (NUM) developed first Mongolian satellite “Mazaalai” in 2017. Following this “Mazaalai” launch, we have now the 3rd BIRDS International workshop and the 8th International Workshop for application of satellite data for Mongolian environment which will be held at NUM E-Library conference Hall between 16-19 August, 2018 in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The National University of Mongolia is the local co-organizer of the workshop.
The workshop will provide space engineering technology, development of Cubesats, small satellites based on application of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) microelectronics, universities to develop, launch and operate and an opportunity to discover cutting-edge remote sensing technology and applications. While at the same time exchanging ideas, research results, professional experiences, and future visions in the fields of environmental innovation, remote sensing applications for environmental studies.
The BIRDS workshop will cover all the aspects of Nano/pico-satellites including architecture, component technologies, navigation, control system, infrastructure such as ground station systems and launch opportunity, applications and regulatory issues and education.
The workshop will focus on various aspects of space engineering in Mongolia and environmental problems, and it is believed to provide an opportunity to discuss how to respond effectively to the regional environmental changes while strengthening international cooperation and advanced use of satellite data. Through the International workshop, we hope to build an international cooperation on space science and engineering, earth observation, environmental innovation, and efficient scientific exchange and collaboration.
I, Tumurbaatar director of NUM, looking forward for our “BIRDS” project partner enhancement/expansion and deepening successfully
President of National University of Mongolia
