Dear colleagues,
It is with great pleasure that we inform you that the creation of the IEEE Switzerland Section Geoscience and Remote Sensing Chapter was approved by the IEEE Member and Geographic Activities (MGA) Board in late 2015.
We would like to extend our thanks to all supporters of the petition.
Herewith we cordially invite you to the first Meeting of the IEEE Switzerland Section Geoscience and Remote Sensing Chapter.
We will be holding the formal election of the chair/vice-chair of the chapter.
Current candidates are:
Othmar Frey for Chair (http://www.ifu.ethz.ch/staff/otfrey, http://www.gamma-rs.ch/gamma/key-personel/dr-othmar-frey.html)
David Small for Vice-Chair (http://www.geo.uzh.ch/en/units/rsl/about-us/staff/small-david).
Following good Swiss democratic tradition, there is of course the possibility to nominate a “Sprengkandidat” at any time until the elections take place. 
In addition, we are very happy to announce that Devis Tuia, SNSF Professor at the Dept. of Geography, University of Zurich will give a talk at the meeting on “Multitemporal land classification and change detection with different sensors”.
Please see the detailed program below.

We look forward to seeing you at ETH Zurich.
