Past ICRSS Conferences

On this page you will find information and data on ICRSS conferences already held.

The International Circumpolar Remote Sensing Symposium was first held in Yellowknife, Canada in 1990 and since then it has alternated between North American and Europe on a biennial basis. It grew from the often-expressed need for exchange of information among those in governments, universities, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector interested with remote sensing research and applications in the polar environments. The symposium provides a forum for the exchange of current applied international research, the presentation of new technology, and the advancement of national and international cooperation in the circumpolar regions of the world.
