Community Contributed Session Proposals

Community Contributed Session Proposal Submission Deadline is Tuesday, 18 October 2022!

Important Dates

Tuesday, 18 October 2022 Community Contributed Session Proposal deadline
Monday, 14 November 2022 Community Contributed Session acceptance notification

Community contributed sessions proposals are solicited for the 2023 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS 2023), to be held on July 16 - 21 at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, California, USA. Community contributed sessions are replacing invited sessions at IGARSS 2023.

Proposals for community contributed sessions are due to the Co-Chairs of the Technical Program Committee by 18 October 2022. This deadline will be strictly observed, and no deadline extension will be given.

Each proposal should include:

The list of potential invitees are highly encouraged but not required. If potential invitees are listed then the chair and co-chair should confirm that the invitees are willing to make a commitment to attend and deliver a presentation at the Symposium in Pasadena in July 2023, should the proposed community contributed session be accepted into the technical program. If you don’t have enough invitees, we will work with you to fill your sessions with abstract submissions.

When seeking such commitment, we suggest that the chair and co-chair of the community contributed session advise the community contributed presenters that a place for the session in the final technical program cannot be guaranteed, as the competition for community contributed session places is strong and the number of such sessions is limited.

Please note that although no special themes have been identified this year, the general themes have changed significantly, so please look at those carefully while selecting your theme.

All proposals should be submitted online through the link below:

The deadline for submitting or revising community contributed session proposals has passed.

All who submitted community contributed session proposals will be informed of the decisions of the technical program chairs of IGARSS 2023 by email on Monday, November 14 2022.
