IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing

The “IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing” (JSTARS) is a quarterly publication sponsored by the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS).

This journal reflects the growing interest in application themes in the annual IEEE conferences. Many papers are part of special issues that result from GRSS sponsored or technically co-sponsored symposia and workshops and similar initiatives. Some special issue topics, particularly those in the applications area, will now be published by the new JSTARS to ease this load. We welcome individual articles and proposals for theme issues or special issues on topics relevant to JSTARS.

The following defines the range of issues appropriate for JSTARS: “Papers should address current issues and techniques in applied remote and in situ sensing, their integration, and applied modeling and information creation for understanding the Earth. Applications are for the Earth, oceans and atmosphere. Topics can include observations, derived information such as forecast data, simulated information, data assimilation and Earth information techniques to address science and engineering issues of the Earth system. The technical content of papers must be both new and significant.”

Jocelyn Chanussot received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Grenoble Institute of Technology (Grenoble INP), Grenoble, France, in 1995, and the Ph.D. degree from Savoie University, Annecy, France, in 1998. In 1999, he was with the Geography Imagery Perception Laboratory for the Delegation Generale de l’Armement (DGA – French National Defense Department). Since 1999, he has been with Grenoble INP, where he was an Assistant Professor from 1999 to 2005, an Associate Professor from 2005 to 2007, and is currently a Professor of signal and image processing. He is currently conducting his research at the Grenoble Images Speech Signals and Automatics Laboratory (GIPSA-Lab). His research interests include image analysis, multicomponent image processing, nonlinear filtering, and data fusion in remote sensing.

Dr. Chanussot is the founding President of IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing French chapter (2007-2010) which received the 2010 IEEE GRS-S Chapter Excellence Award “for excellence as a Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society chapter demonstrated by exemplary activities during 2009”. He was a member of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing AdCom (2009–2010), in charge of membership development. He was the General Chair of the first IEEE GRSS Workshop on Hyperspectral Image and Signal Processing, Evolution in Remote sensing (WHISPERS). He is the Chair (2009-2011) and was the Cochair of the GRS Data Fusion Technical Committee (2005–2008). He was a member of the Machine Learning for Signal Processing Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (2006–2008) and the Program Chair of the IEEE International Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal Processing, (2009). He was an Associate Editor for the IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING LETTERS (2005–2007) and for Pattern Recognition (2006–2008). Since 2007, he is an Associate Editor for the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING.
