IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Sciences

The 3rd International Symposium on LAPAN-IPB Satellite for Food Security and Environmental Monitoring 2016 (LISAT-FSEM 2016), to which this issue of IOP EES is dedicated, was held on November 25-26th, 2016 at the IPB International Convention Center, Bogor, Indonesia. This symposium is jointly organized by the Bogor Agricultural University (IPB), Directorate of Research and Innovation, IPB (DRI-IPB), Center for Environmental Research, Research and Community Services Institution, IPB (PPLH-LPPM, IPB) and the National Institute of Aeronautics and Space of Indonesia (LAPAN), Indonesia.

This symposium is focused on: (1) enhancing beneficial use of satellite technology in the fields of agriculture, forestry, climate change, and marine resources, in terms of food security and environmental monitoring and (2) to prepare and complete the processing chains of the existing environmental satellite data as well as the LAPAN-IPB Satellite (LISAT) data utilization from upstream to downstream of the selected locations in accordance with the focus study.

This symposium is being participated by around 300 participants that come from various government institutions such as: Ministry of Agriculture, Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Indonesian Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics (BMKG), Indonesian Institute of Science (LIPI), Spatial Information Agency (BIG) and some local government’s agencies; from diverse universities such as: Bogor Agricultural University (IPB), Gadjah Mada University (UGM), Bandung Institute of Technology (ITB), University of Tsukuba, Japan, University of Gottingen, Germany, University of Melbourne, Australia and many more. Several organization and NGOs also gave their enthusiasms such as: Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), World Conservation Society (WCS), Indonesian Society for Remote Sensing (MAPIN), and many more.

The symposium organizing committee has already received the total of 105 papers for both category of Oral and Poster Presentation, which come from various scientists and students from different institutions. These papers have been reviewed by the scientific committee of LISAT-FSEM 2016. Regarding the peer review of scientific committee, 110 papers have been selected to be published in this issue, which mostly focused on enhancing the beneficial use of satellite technology in terms of food security in the fields of agriculture, forestry, climate change, and fisheries/marine resources.

Indeed, the result from this symposium will provide useful information from satellite technology in order to support the government’s programs for food security and environmental monitoring. Moreover, this symposium will strengthen the collaboration between multi-institutions and develop a better cooperation among the different research groups, either for basic research or technology developments.

We wish to thank the authors who have contributed to yield a high scientific standard to this issue. We are also grateful to IOP Publishing for allowing us to share some of the symposium results with a large audience of colleagues involved in satellite technology and remote sensing research for global food security and environmental monitoring.
