International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium

In 2021 a joint initiative of Belgium and The Netherlands

Invited Session Proposal Submissions

Invited Session Proposal Submission Deadline is 25 October 2020 1 November 2020!

Invited session proposals are solicited for the 2021 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS 2021), to be held July 11 - 16, in Brussels, Belgium.

Proposals for invited sessions must reach the Co-Chairs of the Technical Program Committee by 25 October 2020 1 November 2020. 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
  • Brief description of session with keywords
  • A short abstract (with at least 250 and fewer than 500 words)
  • List of potential invitees
  • the associated IGARSS 2021 theme (see list of themes)

Each Invited Session will be composed of 5 papers (1 introductory talk of 20 minutes, and 4 short oral presentations of 10 minutes each, followed by a 30 minutes discussion).

Preference will be given to Invited Sessions referring to the topics designated as special interest for IGARSS 2021:

  • UAV and Miniaturised Remote Sensing Capabilities and Applications
  • GPS, GNSS and Galileo for Earth Observation
  • Geo Information and Integration for Smart and Green Cities
  • Advanced Monitoring and Assessment of Hazards (natural, anthropogenic and pandemic)

Should the proposed Invited Session be accepted into the technical program, the chair and co-chair should confirm that their potential invitees commit to attend and deliver a presentation at the IGARSS 2021. When seeking such commitment, we suggest that the chairs of the invited session advise the invited presenters that, until November, a place for the session in the final technical program cannot be guaranteed, as the competition for invited session places is strong and the number of sessions that will be accepted is limited (no more than 30% of the total oral sessions).

The letters of acceptance for Invited Sessions will be mailed on 9 November 2020.

All proposals should be submitted online through the link below:
