IGARSS (the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium) is the flagship conference of the Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society. It is held annually in locations selected according a three-year cycle in the Americas, Europe or Africa, Asia or Australia.

Past IGARSS have been held in locations such as Honolulu (2010), Vancouver (2011), Munich (2012), Melbourne (2013), Quebec City (2014), Milan (2015), Beijing (2016), Fort Worth (2017). Future locations include Valencia (2018), Kyoto (2019), Big Island (2020) and Brussels (2021).

The Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society supports, either technically or financially, a number of small workshops and topical conferences covering a breadth of areas in the field of interest of the Society. Among them, its is worth recalling the following ones:

  • MicroRad, a biennial workshop on microwave radiometry and its application
  • MultiTemp, a biennial workshop on multi-temporal remote sensing image analysis
  • JURSE (Joint Urban Remote Sensing Event), a biennial workshop devoted to urban remote sensing
  • WHISPERS (Workshop on¬†Hyperspectral¬†Image and Signal Processing: Evolution in Remote Sensing), an annual workshop on hypespectral imaging.

To obtain the sponsorship by the Society and publish their Proceedings on IEEEXplore, conference proposals must undergo a rigorous evaluation procedure, explained here.
