IGARSS 2023: Call for Community Session Proposals

Important Dates

Tuesday, 18 October 2022Community Contributed Session Proposal deadline
Friday, 11 November 2022Community Contributed Session acceptance notification

Community contributed sessions proposals are solicited for the 2023 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS 2023), to be held on July 16 – 21 at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena, California, USA. Community contributed sessions are replacing invited sessions at IGARSS 2023.

Proposals for community contributed sessions are due to the Co-Chairs of the Technical Program Committee by 18 October 2022. This deadline will be strictly observed, and no deadline extension will be given.

Each proposal should include:

  • Chair and Co-Chair names, institutional affiliations and contact information
  • Session title
  • A short abstract with description of session topic as well as explanation on why it is important to Geoscience and Remote Sensing
  • List of up to 6 potential invitees (optional)
  • The associated IGARSS 2023 theme (see list of themes)

The list of potential invitees are highly encouraged but not required. If potential invitees are listed then the chair and co-chair should confirm that the invitees are willing to make a commitment to attend and deliver a presentation at the Symposium in Pasadena in July 2023, should the proposed community contributed session be accepted into the technical program. If you don’t have enough invitees, we will work with you to fill your sessions with abstract submissions.

When seeking such commitment, we suggest that the chair and co-chair of the community contributed session advise the community contributed presenters that a place for the session in the final technical program cannot be guaranteed, as the competition for community contributed session places is strong and the number of such sessions is limited.

Please note that although no special themes have been identified this year, the general themes have changed significantly, so please look at those carefully while selecting your theme.

All proposals should be submitted online through the link below:
