The HSC at IEEE IGARSS 2024 for a Session on “Geology and Geophysics across the Solar System”

The Hellenic Space Center is organizing a dynamic session at the upcoming IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) in Athens, Greece, from July 7-12, 2024. Our session, titled “Geology and Geophysics across the Solar System” (CCS.43), promises to showcase exciting results and new methods on remote sensing data analysis for solar system studies.  

About the Session: Our session welcomes studies focused on the surfaces and subsurfaces of inner and outer solar system bodies such as planets, moons, and asteroids based but not limited on analyses of various remote sensing data. Interdisciplinary and comparative studies of terrestrial volcanic/tectonic systems with a strong remote sensing component are encouraged, as well as studies on terrestrial analogues that help understanding the working mechanisms of outer space bodies and vice versa. 

Important Dates: 

  • Abstract Submission Deadline: January 5th, 2024 
  • Notification of Acceptance: March 15th, 2024 
  • Accepted Paper Registration Deadline: May 30th, 2024 
  • IGARSS 2024 Conference: July 7th – 12th, 2024 

Submit your abstract and be a part of this groundbreaking session. Let’s shape the future of space exploration and innovation together! 

The HSC at IEEE IGARSS 2024 for a Session on “Financing the Future: Fostering Innovation in Space Technologies”
