Québec City will host the 10th International Conference on Agro-Geoinformatics, organized in conjunction with the 43rd Symposium of the Canadian Remote Sensing Society. This is a first for Canada, as previous editions of Agro-Geoinformatics have been held in China, Turkey, or the United States. More than 300 experts, engineers, students, and decision-makers interested in remote sensing and geomatics for sustainable agriculture and development will gather at the Québec City Convention Centre, from July 12 to 14, 2022.
Mr. Saeid Homayouni, Associate Professor, and Ms. Monique Bernier, Honorary Professor, at the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS), Center for Water, Land and the Environment (ETE), and members of Québec City’s Ambassadors’ Club, are the two leaders behind the hosting and organization of this scientific conference. These researchers, known for their work in the field of remote sensing in agricultural and northern environments, will promote the conference during the 9th virtual edition, which will take place from July 26 to 29, 2021.
“Given the crucial role and impact of Canadian and Québec researchers in the agri-environmental uses of remote sensing and geomatics, we have decided to propose the joint organization of the 10th International Conference on Agro-Geoinformatics and the 43rd Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing in Québec City. The theme of this event is Remote Sensing and Geomatics for Sustainable Agriculture and Development. After 18 months of virtual scientific life and visual communications with our peers, we hope to attract more than 300 national and international researchers to Québec City in July 2022.” – Saeid Homayouni
“Québec City has been a preferred destination for Québec, Canadian, and international conferences of our scientific community since the mid-1970s. This international event will also be an excellent opportunity for regional and national professionals in agronomy, geomatics, and remote sensing to meet with scientists and see the latest research and technologies to promote sustainable agriculture and ecosystems.” – Monique Bernier
” Hosting an international scientific conference in Québec City is very positive for the economy, for the reputation of our key industries, for the expertise of our scientific community, and all sectors of the tourism industry. We need champions like Mr. Homayoui and Ms. Bernier, proud ambassadors of the convention, who are willing to invest in hosting events.” – Pierre-Michel Bouchard, President and CEO of the Québec City Convention Centre
