Welcome

On behalf of the IGARSS 2014 Local Organizing Committee it gives me great pleasure to invite you to IGARSS 2014, to be held in beautiful and historic Québec City from July 13th – July 18th, 2014. The symposium is being held in conjunction with the 35th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing. We are looking forward to welcoming members of the geoscience and remote sensing community and to presentations of their most recent findings.

The development of new and renewable sources of energy in the context of a changing planet is a critical and important issue throughout the world. IGARSS 2014 and the 35th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing (CSRS) will include keynote speakers and include special sessions dedicated to the “Energy” theme.

In addition to a host of well established session themes, IGARSS 2014/35th CSRS topics will also include Earth observation for Arctic research, Earth observation for renewable energy, energy budgets and modeling, future satellite programs, global environmental change, international co­operation ( including the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites – CEOS ; Global Earth Observation System of Systems – GEOSS ), new remote sensing technologies, security and defence, sustainable development, and more. A Summer School will be held the week before the symposium.

Welcome to Quebec City in 2014!
