Due to the extraordinary situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Digital Earth Summit will be held online for the first time in ISDE history. It will be held in the form of thematic sections dedicated to current issues in the development of the Digital Earth, Keynote Speakers’ presentations and thematic discussions. Participation in the Summit is free of charge, attendees should register in advance on the website; the number of online participants is limited. Two types of content must be presented:

  • video of the presentation;
  • poster (optional).

Both types of material will be placed in an open ISDE online depository, and video will also be available on the ISDE channel on YouTube. The materials will be available before the Summit and will also be available in the future.

Requirements for materials
