Welcome to IconSpace2021

Given that the development of space science and technology has been playing a critical role in the sustainable development of natural resources, telecommunications, and meteorology, and that the number of participants has been increased in the last six IconSpace conferences since 2009, the Institute of Climate Change of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) is therefore to pursue the 7th IconSpace conference with a theme "Space Science and Communication System for Sustainability" to promote the research and education in the field of space science, technology, and governance.
