IEEE GRSS IADF Photo Contest 2023

Are you working on image analysis or data fusion for Earth observation ? Do you have exciting work to be shared with the community? Then submit your illustrations to the IEEE GRSS IADF Photo Contest 2023! We are looking for enlightening illustrations that explain your method, fancy visualizations of the input, intermediate representations, or final results, or a visual summary of a core problem that you are aiming to solve. Use this opportunity to make your work known in the community (and get some GRSS prizes on the way).

How to participate? 

  • Submit a picture or animation depicting the results of image analysis/data fusion methods on Earth Observation (EO) images. Think of it as a “graphical abstract” of your work! A modified image acquired from EO sensors can also be submitted.

  • Participants must also submit a 250-word write-up on “Why the image is interesting and why it should be considered the best image?”
  • Participants are encouraged to share their images on twitter with #IADF and tag the IADF Twitter account (@GrssIadf)
