ESA LPS 2019 - Registration is open
01 February 2019
Registration is now open for ESA's Living Planet Symposium 2019 (LPS19).
Attracting thousands of scientists and data users, ESA's Living Planet Symposia - held every three years - are amongst the biggest Earth Observation conferences in the world.
The Living Planet Symposium 2019 is organised by ESA with the support of the Italian Space Agency (ASI), and will be held at the Milano Congressi (MiCo) centre in Milan, Italy, from 13 to 17 May 2019.
For decades now, Earth observation has played a fundamental role in advancing our understanding of how our planet works and how it is being affected by climate change. While the need to continue to advance our knowledge and monitor global change remains paramount, Earth observation has entered a new era where it is playing a key role in a myriad of everyday applications to improve daily lives and is also becoming increasingly relevant for the competitive business sector.
We look forward to meeting you in Milan.
