International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium

In 2021 a joint initiative of Belgium and The Netherlands

The 2021 IGARSS conference will be organised in virtual format

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:

  1. To chat, present, explore, and enable you to catch up with your colleagues and to exchange ideas.
  2. To visit a virtual exhibition with exhibitors, both institutional as well as commercial, who highlight the finest technological advances that they have to offer.
  3. To visit an online job-market, to find new employers or new colleagues for your mission.

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.
