Dear IGARSS participants,
We see a positive trend in the number of vaccinations worldwide.
It seems that the headlock in which Covid-19 has held the world is slowly released.
Yet, for the 2021 edition of IGARSS, it is not feasible to organize the conference in the way we would like, with real people, together in a real venue, in the magnificent city of Brussels.
With much regret, the only responsible choice to make is to organize the conference in ‘virtual’, or ‘on-line’ format.
Nevertheless, we do everything in our power to make IGARSS 2021 much more than a long extended ‘zoom’ session.
In fact, we have a great virtual conference for you. With more than 1,500 oral presentations and more than 1,000 multimedia presentations, you will be able to sample the latest advances with the most achievable people in our discipline: Geoscience and Remote Sensing.
We designed a brand new attractive 3D virtual platform that will enable you to move smoothly within the conference center:
So, to be very clear: there will be no on-site IGARSS activities in Brussels this year. Instead, you can enjoy a virtual IGARSS 2021 event and we are excited to give you a flavor of Brussels that may hopefully lead to a physical visit in better times.

This date is not a deadline to participants without papers.
‡ All the participants with an accepted paper/presentation who choose to participate in the physical conference, will be able to update their registration as of June 1, 2015 and should pay the difference with the physical conference rate no later than June 15, 2021 to ensure their participation in the physical programme. The program will be made final at that point only and the commitment to travel will be binding.
