Advancing Earth Observation Forum @ Adelaide Convention Centre

The second Advancing Earth Observation Forum will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre. The five-day event will attract delegates across a broad spectrum of applications, sensors and interests, including industry, research, defence, government, students and end-users.

The biennial Forum was created to enable the Earth observation (EO) community to communicate, coordinate, collaborate and collectively assess the state of EO in the Australian and Asia-Pacific region.

AEO24 will build on the momentum generated at the inaugural AEO Forum held in Brisbane in 2022, bringing together all sectors involved in EO to propel the sector forward to meet the growing international demand for EO.
