The 2020 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium is scheduled to be held as planned, July 19 - 24, 2020 in Waikoloa, Hawaii, USA. Of course, the safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. The Organizing Committee is considering options for IGARSS 2020 in case other plans need to be made to protect the health of our global community. We suggest that you consider delaying making additional travel reservations at this time to avoid incurring non-refundable fees.
We will continue to monitor official travel advisories related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and update the IGARSS 2020 website to keep you informed. We will also continue to monitor advisories issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as work with our local venue partners to remain current on their preparedness and recommendations. We urge all travelers to keep informed and check for updated information on these sites:
Wishing you the best of health and good preparation for IGARSS 2020!

The IGARSS 2020 team is excited to announce a new and more agile format for the Oral Sessions following numerous requests to increase discussion time and foster interactions.
Each Invited Oral Session will be composed of 8 papers; a 20-minute, theme oriented introductory talk and 7 short oral presentations of 5 minutes each. Every 5-minute presentation will be associated with a poster presentation in the same room, and there will be 45 minutes at the end of the oral presentations to further discuss the short talks just presented. In cases when the Invited Oral Sessions for the same topic cover more than one time block, the introductory talk will be presented only at the beginning of the first block, and the additional time in the second time block will be allocated to 4 additional 5-minute talks.
Each Regular Oral Session will be composed of oral presentations of 5 minutes each. Every 5-minute presentation will be associated with a poster presentation in the same room, and there will be 50 minutes at the end of the oral presentations to further discuss the short talks just presented.
The format for the interactive Poster Sessions will remain unchanged from the past IGARSS symposia.
IGARSS 2020 - Remote Sensing: Global Perspectives for Local Solutions – is to be held on the Big Island of Hawaii. This island – over 4,000 square miles – has 10 of the world’s 14 climate zones and lends itself to discovery for our diverse global viewpoints and discussions. You will also find the longest running active volcano in the world (continuous since 1983) and the world's largest active Volcano (Mauna Loa.)
The IGARSS 2020 conference will be held at the Hilton Waikoloa Village on 62 oceanfront acres along the Kohala Coast. It is 20 minutes north of the Kona International Airport. This property offers tropical gardens, wildlife, Asian and Polynesian art, golf courses, tennis courts, shopping, restaurants, snorkeling, a nearby white sand beach (anaeho’omalu bay), salt-water lagoon, fresh water swimming pools, waterfalls and slides, dolphin encounters, sea turtles, and much more.
IGARSS 2020 is offering unique perspectives, discussions, research, solutions, and an opportunity to network in a beautiful environment.
Hosted by the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, the 2020 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS 2020) will be held Sunday, 19 July through Friday, 24 July, 2020 at the Hilton Waikoloa Village in Waikoloa, Hawaii, USA. The main theme of the 2020 symposium is “Remote Sensing: Global Perspectives for Local Solutions”.
On behalf of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society and the IGARSS 2020 Organizing Committee, we invite you to participate in IGARSS 2020, the world’s premier symposium on geoscience, remote sensing and related topics. We look forward to meeting you in Waikoloa during IGARSS 2020.
IGARSS is a premier event in remote sensing and provides an ideal forum for obtaining up-to-date information about the latest developments, exchanging ideas, identifying future trends and making networking with the international geoscience and remote sensing community.
The IGARSS 2020 technical program will include the following general themes:
In addition, special scientific themes will be addressed, including:
IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society student members are invited to submit a paper to the IGARSS Student Paper Competition. The selection of the finalist papers will be done by a committee of experts, and the selected students will present their papers during a special session at the Symposium.
Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings on IEEE Xplore® only if presented at the Symopsium by one of the listed authors, duly registered.
Authors who wish to give a presentation are requested to submit a paper (minimum of 2 pages; maximum of four pages). Paper Submission is now open!
