IEEE Young Professionals

Young Professionals (YP), previously known as Graduates of Last Decade (GOLD), is the group of IEEE members that have completed their first academic degree within the last 15 years. The IEEE Young Professionals is an international community of innovative members and volunteers. Members of this community are interested in elevating their professional image, expanding their global network, connecting with peers locally and giving back to the community.

Within this context, GRSS is trying to identify the most promising methods through which YP community can be better assisted and integrated in the GRSS world. An unprecedented initiative devoted to YP is proposed to encourage your attendance to our flagship conference: the International Geoscience and remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS).

This initiative consists of providing financial support in the amount of $100 USD (which will be applied toward the registration fee) to attend IGARSS 2017, and a complimentary ticket for the YP luncheon.
