Call for Abstracts

On behalf of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society and the IGARSS 2023 Organizing Committee, we invite you to submit your paper to the world’s premier symposium on geoscience, remote sensing and related topics. The 2023 symposium is going be to held in person with the theme of “Reconnecting” with our peers and community. This is an ideal forum for obtaining up-to-date information about the latest developments, exchanging ideas, identifying future trends and making networking with the international geoscience and remote sensing community.

The abstracts will go through a review process and accepted abstracts will be for either a 10-12-minute oral presentation or a poster presentation.

We are soliciting ideas in the following Themes

General Themes
  • SAR Imaging and Processing Techniques
  • Data Analysis
  • AI and Big Data
  • Modeling
  • Cryosphere
  • Land Applications
  • Atmosphere Applications
  • Ocean
  • Remote Sensing of Planetary and other Celestial Bodies
  • Mission, Sensors and Calibration
  • Sensors, Instruments and Calibration
  • Education and Policy
  • Societal Engagement and Impacts

In addition, we are also including community contributed sessions within the themes listed above and encourage you to look through those specific sessions if you have interest in submitting to them. These sessions can be viewed here

Abstract Format

The abstract should contain about minimum of 500 to maximum of 1000 words and may include up to 2 figures. The content of the abstract should be no longer than 2 pages. References should be included at the end of the abstract and can extend onto an additional page. The list of references does not contribute to the abstract word count. Abstract templates are provided HERE.

Student Paper Competition

IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society student members are invited to submit a paper to the IGARSS Student Paper Competition. To be considered for the IGARSS Student Paper Competition, you must submit a full paper following the template provided HERE. The first author must be a full-time student at the time of submission of the paper. Selection of the top 10 papers will be done by a committee of experts and the selected student authors will be invited to present their papers during a special session at the Symposium.

Paper Submission And Publication of Proceedings

Authors who give a presentation at IGARSS (either oral or interactive) can chose to submit a 4-page conference proceedings paper and/or a full-length journal article based on the conference paper to the special issue of JSTARS to be published on IEEE Xplore. Information about proceeding paper can be found here. More information on JSTARS is coming.

We look forward to welcome at the Pasadena Convention Center, Pasadena, CA for IGARSS 2023.

The word Pasadena literally means “valley” in the Ojibwa (Chippewa) Indian language, but it has been interpreted to mean “Crown of the Valley” and “Key of the Valley.” With historic buildings, luscious landscapes, and California sunshine that provides a plethora of light, Pasadena is the perfect oasis from the hustle and bustle of downtown Los Angeles, located a mere 10 miles away. The city combines world class events, science and technology, arts and culture, history and architecture with great neighborhoods and opportunities for all.
