Off to Munich for IGARSS

Munich is a beautiful city, attracting about 70 million people from around the world every year. Starting tomorrow, the International Congress Centre will be home to scientists from around the globe contributing roughly 2000 papers on the topic ‘Remote Sensing for a Dynamic Earth’. The schedule is filled with exciting presentations, tutorials and poster sessions unveiling the latest achievements in this exciting field. And just as all the attendees will soon be doing, we have packed our bags and are getting ready for this magnificent event.


For those attending, the IGARSS 2012 website offers information not only about the conference programme, but also about accommodation, attendees, social events and many of the highlights that the Bavarian capital has to offer. This very complete information package is available here.

Not to miss - the plenary session on Monday 23 July, featuring our own Johann-Dietrich Wörner, ESA’s Volker Liebig and WCRP’s Ghassem Asrar. For those attending the symposium, please stop by the joint DLR/ESA stand in the exhibition hall, where you’ll find out about DLR, ESA and their missions. We will be there as well, and will love talking to you! For those interested but who aren’t able to make it, we will try to inform you as much as we can in real time, here in this blog and in our social media channels. If you would like to know something about the symposium, please let us know.
