|Sunday, 15 October 2023||Community Contributed Session Proposal deadline|
|Wednesday, 1 November 2023||Community Contributed Session acceptance notification|
Community contributed sessions proposals are solicited for the 2024 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS 2024), to be held on July 7 - 12 in Athens, Greece. Community contributed sessions are replacing invited sessions at IGARSS 2024.
Proposals for community contributed sessions are due to the Co-Chairs of the Technical Program Committee by 15 October 2023. This deadline will be strictly observed, and no deadline extension will be given.
Each proposal should include:
In general, each Community-Contributed session will be composed of 5 papers. For those who want to propose longer sessions, please submit multiple sessions (such as Session Name: Title (Part 1), Session Name: Title (Part 2), where each session has 5 papers. The timeline and process for abstract submission and peer-review for invitees is the same as that for the regular oral sessions.
Preference will be given to Community-Contributed Sessions referring to the topics designated as special interest for IGARSS 2024:
Proposals that refer to the General Topics are equally welcome:
Should the proposed Community- Contributed Session be accepted into the technical program, the chair and co-chair should confirm that their potential invitees commit to attend and deliver a presentation at the IGARSS 2024. When seeking such commitment, we suggest that the chairs of the Community-Contributed session advise the invited presenters that, until November, a place for the session in the final technical program cannot be guaranteed, as the competition for Community-Contributed session places is strong and the number of sessions that will be accepted is limited (no more than 30% of the total oral sessions).
The letters of acceptance for Community-Contributed Sessions will be mailed on Wednesday, 1 November 2023.
