Paper Submission

On behalf of the technical committee of the 2021 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) we would like to thank all of you for your inspiring enthusiasm to join IGARSS 2021. With more than 2600 abstract submissions we look forward to set up an incredible program and welcome you for the first ever hybrid edition of IGARSS.

While we continue to monitor and address the impact of COVID-19, the IGARSS 2021 Organizing Committee nevertheless looking for conference format that will enable a broader participation of the geoscience and remote sensing community. IGARSS 2021 will be held physically at the Square-Brussels, with an option to participate virtually through an on-line platform, from Monday, 12th of July till Friday, the 16th of July 2021. More information about this hybrid format can be found here.

In the meanwhile, stay safe and we look forward to meeting you at IGARSS 2021 in Brussels!

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.
