Remote Sensing: Global Vision for Local Action
On behalf of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society and the IGARSS 2010 Organizing Committee, we are pleased to invite you to Honolulu for IGARSS 2010. We are thrilled to be returning to Hawaii to host IGARSS on its 30th anniversary! In the true spirit of an international event, we will continue our tradition of gathering world-class scientists, engineers, and educators engaged in the fields of geosciences and remote sensing from around the world. We anticipate well over one thousand participants to enjoy a week of technical sessions, tutorials, exhibits and social activities.
For this 30th anniversary IGARSS we will celebrate our accomplishments over three decades of leadership in remote sensing instrumentation, techniques, and applications development. But perhaps more importantly we will look ahead to the future of our field with some fresh approaches and perspectives through our conference theme: Remote Sensing: Global Vision for Local Action. One such activity will be embodied in our plenary session, which will focus on the emerging field of Community Remote Sensing. We hope this plenary session, along with special tutorials and technical sessions, will inspire and excite our community for what is possible in the coming decade. We look forward to seeing you in Honolulu in July 2010!

Participation in IGARSS is open to all individuals interested in or working in the fields of geoscience and remote sensing. Abstracts received by the deadline will be considered for program placement under the standard peer review process. Late abstracts cannot be accepted due to the large number of submissions and short review schedule. The IEEE IGARSS 2010 Technical Program Committee will organize all accepted abstracts into either oral or interactive poster sessions based upon their potential contribution to the symposium and the composition of high-quality sessions. Session Co-chairs will be appointed as early as possible to help TPC setting the highest quality for oral and interactive sessions. Only accepted papers that are registered and presented at the symposium in Honolulu will be published in the symposium proceedings and be assigned an IEEE GRSS publication reference. The list of specialty projects and themes associated with community remote sensing will be soon available on the symposium website.
