Luxembourg Earth Observation and Integrated Applications Day

Space Applications in Environmental Management


The 5th edition of Luxembourg Earth Observation and integrated Applications Day, which was set to take place on April 30 this year at the Domaine Thermal in Mondorf-les-Bains, has officially been postponed in light of the current coronavirus pandemic.
We will propose a new date once the situation has improved and we will come back to you.

LEO Day event

The conference intends to increase the awareness among users and service providers within the Grande Région of the potential that space technologies offer in the domain of environmental monitoring and management. Private companies and research organizations from the Grande Région are also given the opportunity to present their activities in related fields.

This year's conference will address the current and future status of space applications with a particular focus on the potential of artificial intelligence for developing innovative space applications. The successful integration of satellite, airborne, UAV-drones and field data together with global navigation satellite systems and satellite-based communication systems will be a second priority domain.


In the morning session a keynote speaker will address the potential of artificial intelligence for developing innovative space applications, followed by presentations on ESA and Copernicus Earth observation programs, as well as on key-enabling Luxembourgish infrastructures to bring the sector forward (HPC, EO data center, data analytics and visualization). In the afternoon sessions, invited speakers will provide insight on recent advances in remote sensing research and innovation in the following thematic sessions:

  • Crisis management

  • Agriculture/sylviculture/viticulture

  • Biodiversity and land management

  • Transport and logistics

Networking sessions will give participants the opportunity to present their activities in the space sector in the form of a poster or a booth.
