The theme of the 16th ICRSS is Convergence at the Poles - Addressing Urgent Research Questions and Management Needs through Remote Sensing in the Arctic and Antarctic. This symposium will be of interest to scientists, scholars, and industry and government professionals involved in studying and quantifying Arctic and Antarctic change, renewable and non-renewable resource management, and development of new technologies and methods targeting remote sensing observations of polar environments. The symposium will provide a platform for the exchange of current applied research and best practices, the presentation of new technology and further innovation, and the advancement of international co-operation in the circumpolar regions of the world. The ICRSS deals specifically with remote sensing applications in the polar environments, both Arctic and Antarctic.

At this time, organizers are still anticipating that the symposium will take place in person with a virtual option for those not able to attend. Given this, much of the meeting will be organized for in-person attendees. Organizers will also include some virtual content for remote participation, likely including both real-time and asynchronous interactive sessions.
