AUTH, ΝΟΑ, INOE and CNR organize the first European Lidar Conference (ELC) in Thessaloniki on July 2018. ELC is designed to be a flexible, affordable and friendly conference, aiming to gather European lidar researchers to foster discussions and debates on open issues related to lidar science and technologies. The conference topics include Lidar Technologies, Lidar algorithms and data products and Lidar applications.ELC will be a biennial conference to be organized in between the ILRCs. ELC is about plenary sessions, either oral, poster or Pico presentations, followed by open discussions and concluding remarks.
