At IGARSS 2024, we are dedicated to fostering a culture of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) that celebrates the unique perspectives, backgrounds, and talents of all individuals within our community. Recognizing the importance of diversity in driving innovation and fostering creativity, we are committed to creating an environment where everyone feels valued, respected, and empowered to contribute their best.

By embracing diversity, equity, and inclusion, we not only enrich our congress experience but also strengthen our collective impact in advancing the field of space technology and Earth observation services. Together, let us celebrate our differences, leverage our strengths, and create a more equitable and inclusive future for all.

Family Rooms

At IGARSS 2024, we understand that attending conferences can be challenging for delegates with young children. That's why we are pleased to announce the availability of two dedicated family rooms to provide a comfortable and welcoming space for families attending the congress.

Equipped with essential amenities such as changing tables, nursing chairs, and baby-friendly facilities, our family rooms are designed to accommodate the needs of parents and their little ones. Whether you need a quiet space for feeding or a convenient area for diaper changes, our family rooms offer a safe and supportive environment for families to relax and refresh during the congress.

Located within the congress venue, our family rooms provide easy access for delegates with children, allowing parents to fully participate in the event without worrying about childcare arrangements. We welcome families to make use of these facilities and encourage parents to reach out to our staff for any additional assistance or support they may need.

Please note that children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times while using the family room facilities. To ensure the safety and security of all individuals, the accompanying person must present their passport and specify whether they are the parent or guardian of the child. This policy helps us maintain a supportive and welcoming environment for families attending the congress, and we appreciate your cooperation in adhering to these guidelines.

Family Room Hours: July 8th to July 12th.

  • Monday: 9:00-19:00

At IGARSS 2024, we are committed to making a positive impact not only within the scientific community but also in the broader society. As part of our Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts, we are proud to announce that all items purchased for the family and lactation rooms during the congress will be donated to ELEPAP - Rehabilitation for The Disabled.


ELEPAP, the oldest non-profit charity organization in Greece, has been dedicated to providing essential rehabilitation services to children since 1937. With high-level facilities and six branches throughout Greece, ELEPAP extends its compassionate care to infants, children, and adults in need, offering a range of services that support their development and well-being.

Our Commitment

The family and lactation rooms at IGARSS 2024 are designed to provide comfort and support to delegates with young children and nursing mothers. Following the congress, all items from these rooms, including furniture, equipment, and supplies, will be donated to ELEPAP. This donation aims to support ELEPAP's mission of providing high-quality rehabilitation services and improving the lives of children and adults with disabilities.

Why It Matters

By donating these items to ELEPAP, we hope to contribute to their ongoing efforts to provide exceptional care and support to those in need. This initiative reflects our dedication to environmental stewardship and social responsibility, ensuring that the resources used during the congress continue to benefit the community long after the event has concluded.

Join Us in Making a Difference

We invite all IGARSS 2024 participants to join us in supporting ELEPAP and their valuable work. Together, we can make a meaningful contribution to the lives of children and adults in need of rehabilitation services.
