Scientists, researchers, public administration officials and developers planning to build AI applications in remote sensing.




Dr Stefan Lang, University of Salzburg

Associated Professor at the Department of Geoinformatics and Vice-Dean of the Faculty for Digital and Analytical Sciences (DAS) at the Paris-Lodron University Salzburg (PLUS). He is academic coordinator of the Erasmus+ Skills Alliance EO4GEO and director of the Erasmus+ Joint Master Copernicus in Digital Earth. He is co-founder of the University spin-off Spatial Services Ltd and has established EO downstream services in new application domains. He is heading the Christian Doppler Laboratory GEOHUM developing AI-based solutions for humanitarian organisations.

Dr Florian Albrecht, University of Salzburg

A researcher and lecturer in the Climate, Hazard & Risk Lab at the Department for Geoinformatics - Z_GIS, University of Salzburg. His research focuses on the design, development and validation of Earth Observation derived geographic information products for applications in natural hazards and urban planning. As an experienced lecturer for remote sensing and geospatial analysis, he develops and applies innovative tools for designing training resources and actions for the EO and GI sector.

Getachew Workineh Gella, University of Salzburg

MSc in Earth observation and Geoinformation Science. Currently, he is a doctoral student at the University of Salzburg, working on integration of deep learning models with high resolution satellite images for humanitarian applications in emergency response. He has a broader interest in transfer learning, domain adaptation and data efficient information extraction workflows.

Marcin Kowalski, CloudFerro

A cloud expert with over 15 years’ experience in implementing cloud and IT infrastructure products for large IT companies. Marcin is as a customer’s voice in the company, responsible for the quality and reliability of the cloud computing services.
