Paper Submission Deadline: January 9, 2017

Countdown To Exact Deadline

There will be no extension of regular paper submission deadline, late or updated submissions beyond January 9, 2017 will not be accommodated.

Paper Submission

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 2017 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.

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