    I’d like to learn a little more about who this Summer School event on June 19th is aimed at. I’m just beginning to teach intro-level Remote Sensing in our program, but am not an RS person myself, so am looking for useful info, training resources, etc. both for myself and for my students. And, the overall conference itself, I presume it is aimed at established RS practitioners, as opposed to someone like myself?

    Hello again, Jon. Have investigated and hope to attend the Summer School.
    Another question: Re: “A UAV demonstration and competition is also presented on June 19th in nearby Saint-Amable (Qc). Transportation is included, departing from the Conference venue.”, I presume that this is what is listed under Registration as the “Dronelympics”. A colleague of mine might like to attend this event. He would not be attending the general conference, so would he be permitted to pay the $50 fee and attend this?
