Annual conference

The EPG Early Career Scientist Conference is held each year in early summer.

The 2017 conference was held at the University of Edinburgh, on the topic of "Sentinel", to showcase the research currently being carried out using the Sentinel suite of satellites, under the Copernicus program.
Copernicus is the world's largest single earth observation programme and directed by the European Commission in partnership with the European Space Agency. Below are the presentations and photographs from the day.

The 2018 conference will be themed on the research conducted on the air quality of the Indoor Environment. If you would like to be involved in next years' meeting, please contact groups@iop.org, stating whether you would like to host the event or be a speaker.
