Paper Submission

Dear IGARSS participants,

We see a positive trend in the number of vaccinations worldwide.

It seems that the headlock in which Covid-19 has held the world is slowly released.

Yet, for the 2021 edition of IGARSS, it is not feasible to organize the conference in the way we would like, with real people, together in a real venue, in the magnificent city of Brussels.

With much regret, the only responsible choice to make is to organize the conference in ‘virtual’, or ‘on-line’ format.

Nevertheless, we do everything in our power to make IGARSS 2021 much more than a long extended ‘zoom’ session.

In fact, we have a great virtual conference for you. With more than 1,500 oral presentations and more than 1,000 multimedia presentations, you will be able to sample the latest advances with the most achievable people in our discipline: Geoscience and Remote Sensing.

We designed a brand new attractive 3D virtual platform that will enable you to move smoothly within the conference center:

  1. To chat, present, explore, and enable you to catch up with your colleagues and to exchange ideas.
  2. To visit a virtual exhibition with exhibitors, both institutional as well as commercial, who highlight the finest technological advances that they have to offer.
  3. To visit an online job-market, to find new employers or new colleagues for your mission.

So, to be very clear: there will be no on-site IGARSS activities in Brussels this year. Instead, you can enjoy a virtual IGARSS 2021 event and we are excited to give you a flavor of Brussels that may hopefully lead to a physical visit in better times.

Participation in IGARSS is open to all individuals interested in or working in the fields of geoscience and remote sensing. Papers received by the deadline will be considered for program placement under the standard peer review process. Late papers cannot be accepted due to the large number of submissions and short review schedule. The IEEE IGARSS 2021 Technical Program Committee will organize all accepted papers into either oral or interactive poster sessions based upon their potential contribution to the symposium and the composition of high-quality sessions.
