Paper/Abstract Submission

Participation in IGARSS is open to all individuals interested in or working in the fields of geoscience and remote sensing. Abstracts received by the deadline will be considered for program placement under the standard peer review process. Late abstracts cannot be accepted due to the large number of submissions and short review schedule. The IEEE IGARSS 2015 Technical Program Committee will organize all accepted abstracts into either oral or interactive poster sessions based upon their potential contribution to the symposium and the composition of high-quality sessions.

The entire submission process and requirements are detailed in the Paper Kit.

Conference Proceedings

Presenting authors with accepted abstracts are encouraged but not required to publish their paper(s) in the conference proceedings. Only papers submitted, registered and presented at the conference will be published in the IGARSS 2015 proceedings and hence will be citable and searchable by the Engineering Index. If an author chooses to publish in the conference proceedings, the following instructions apply:

  • Log in to the symposium website to follow instructions for submitting full paper(s).
  • All full papers must be submitted by the deadline of May 29, 2015.
  • Authors who upload a full paper for the proceedings, will have that paper published in the conference-distributed electronic proceedings. Authors who do not upload a full paper, will have their 2-4 page abstract appear as a supplemental material on the electronic media alongside the proceedings, but will not be considered published in the proceedings.
  • Student delegates paying a reduced student rate may only register one paper for the symposium. Regular delegates may register up to two papers. Co-authors may register and present papers on behalf of the first author.
