Distinguished Lecturers

Distinguished Lecturer Program

The Distinguished Lecturer Program (DLP) is a service of the GRSS and its members to support our chapter activities. Our goal is to provide chapters with access to with leading professionals in geoscience and remote sensing and discuss novel topics in current research. This is an opportunity for the GRSS membership to hear interesting talks about work being done in our fields of interest and to meet some of the prominent members of our Society.

In light of the ongoing pandemic and uncertain travel restrictions, for the calendar year 2021, lectures and presentations under the Distinguished Lecturers or Industry Distinguished Lecturer program should be given virtually. That is, at this time, GRSS and IEEE are not approving travel fund requests.
