This conference will emphasize the latest advancements in the coherent laser radar field, including theory, modeling, components, systems, instrumentation, measurements, calibration, data processing techniques, operational uses, and comparisons with other remote sensing technologies.
In order to allow for information exchange with other disciplines, contributions in related coherent optical technologies and applications are also encouraged.
The 17th conference on coherent laser radar technology and applications is the latest in a series beginning in 1980 that provides a forum for exchange of information on recent events, current status, and future directions of coherent laser radar (coherent lidar) technology and applications
The conference serves as a biannual forum for the exchange of current and future developments within the field of coherent laser radar. It is intended that the meeting will highlight recent advancements in the field, including component technology and instrumentation, systems (surface, airborne, and space-based), measurements and processing techniques, and emerging requirements for coherent laser radar applications in studies of atmospheric, ocean, surface and target properties

The conference venue would be at Campus of BarcelonaTech in the city of Barcelona. The Campus, located in the west area of Barcelona and just minutes from underground stations, has several conference auditoriums and it is a self-contained venue with easy accessibility and compactness.
Over two thousands years old, Barcelona is best known for its architectural treasures, featuring many unique buildings from the “Modernist” period , seven of which have declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. Furthermore, in the last two decades, Barcelona has been an experimentation ground for the most innovative architectural concepts.
Barcelona is also famous for its cultural tradition. The city has over twenty museums, covering all aspects of art and culture. The best known are the National Museum of Art of Catalonia, with one of the major collections of Romanesque and Gothic art, the Museum of Historic Art, the Picasso Museum, the Miró Foundation, and the Tàpies Foundation. The Science Museum presents a wideranging display of scientific and technological advances.
Modern, cosmopolitan, a center of world-renowned cuisine and cultural heritage, the city of Barcelona beckons.
