International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium

In 2021 a joint initiative of Belgium and The Netherlands

As we continue to monitor and address the impact of COVID-19, IGARSS 2021 Organizing Committee is working closely with conference venue and service providers to ensure that all health safety requirements are met. The Organizing Committee will make necessary adjustments to minimize the impact of travel restrictions on IGARSS 2021 participants. We look forward to bringing the global geoscience and remote sensing community together in Brussels for our 2021 IGARSS conference.

IGARSS 2021 in Brussels!

The conference organisation is a joint effort of the Low Countries, the Netherlands and Belgium, with Crossing Borders as the overall theme of the conference.

Crossing Borders

  • Between Countries and Research Institutes
  • Between Types of Platforms (from satellites to drones)
  • Between Data Sources
  • Between Disciplines

Brussels is a vibrant, multicultural and multilingual city in the heart of Europe. Befitting its role as capital of the European Union, it sits at the crossroads of several nations and cultures. Although it is one of the most cosmopolitan cities worldwide, with residents from 184 countries, it retains a unique distinct culture of its own, steeped in 1000 years of history.

Whether you are into local gastronomy, pub life, art or architecture, Brussels offers it all in spades and temperate climate that makes it ideal to enjoy all year long.

Eager to explore beyond the city limits? Brussels is surrounded by a string of beautiful towns such as Bruges, Ghent and Antwerp. Due to its central location and ease of accessibility, it is only a short train ride away from major European hubs such as Paris, London, Amsterdam and Cologne.
