The GOFC-GOLD Land Cover Project Office announces the organisation of the 3rd GOFC-GOLD Symposium in Wageningen, The Netherlands on April 15-19, 2013.

In continuity with the two previous Symposiums organised in 2006 and 2008 at Friedrich Schiller University, Jena, Germany, this new Symposium is intended to provide the land monitoring community with an opportunity to discuss current challenges related to REDD+, Land Cover as ECV, GEO, global land cover and fire mapping and global validation activities. The Symposium will provide members of the GOFC-GOLD ITs, WGs, and RNs an opportunity to discuss the future of the upcoming priorities and organisation (structure, orientations, internal and external synergies).

You are cordially invited to come to Wageningen to participate to a series of specialised workshops dedicated to Land Monitoring activities. Please find the general agenda online and let us know your interest in participating to this event. For registrations please contact Antoinette Stoffers (Antoinette.Stoffers@wur.nl). Further details will be provided in the next GOFC-GOLD Land Cover newsletters and the webpage.

The 3rd GOFC-GOLD Symposium is sponsored by Wageningen University, ESA, NASA, START, GCOS, GEO, and CIFOR.

We hope to see you next year in Wageningen.
