Invitation to IGARSS 2015 in Milan

Hosted by the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium 2015 (IGARSS 2015) will be held from Sunday July 26th through Friday July 31th, 2015 at the Convention Center in Milan, Italy. This is the same town of the EXPO 2015 exhibition, whose topic is "Feeding the planet: energy for life". The conference main theme highlights the role of remote sensing for assessing, monitoring, and managing risks related to natural disasters.

After an extensive review process, the technical program includes more than 2100 papers that will be presented in oral and poster sessions organized along the main themes of the conference. Moreover, 15 tutorials on hot topic of geoscience and remote sensing will be given, there will be a rich exposition with major industries and agencies working in the field and many other technical and social events (which can be discovered navigating on this web site) will be organized.

On behalf of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society and the IGARSS Organising Committee we invite you to participate to IGARSS 2015, the world's premier symposium on the subject of remote sensing. We look forward to meeting you and talking to you in Milan during IGARSS 2015.
