The 2012 International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) is being held in Munich, Germany, on 22-27 July.

It will be the 32nd annual IGARSS event, continuing the tradition of providing a forum for world-class scientists, engineers and educators to obtain up-to-date information about the latest developments in remote sensing, exchange ideas and identify research trends and make contacts with the international remote-sensing community.

On Monday, 23 July, the live stream will begin at 09:00 CEST with the opening session.

Starting at 10:50, the plenary session will include presentations by Prof. Johann-Dietrich Woerner, Chairman of the Executive Board of the German Aerospace Center, and Prof. Volker Liebig, Director of Earth Observation Programmes at ESA.

Director of the World Climate Research Program, Ghassem R. Asrar, will also deliver a keynote speech about recent progress and future opportunities in Earth observation.

The morning session will close with a symposium introduction and review of the technical programme.

The full agenda of the opening can be found on the symposium website.

Registration for the symposium is possible onsite, during the event. For more information and fees, visit the registration page.

IGARSS is jointly organised by the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, the DLR German Aerospace Center and ESA.
