Introduction

Welcome to the summer school organized by the High-Performance and Disruptive Computing in Remote Sensing (HDCRS) Working Group. HDCRS is part of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS), in particular of the Earth Science Informatics (ESI) Technical Committee.

This school is the perfect venue to network with students and young professionals, as well as senior researcher and professors who are world-renowned leaders in the field of remote sensing and work on interdisciplinary research with high performance computing, cloud computing, quantum computing and parallel programming models with specialized hardware technologies.
