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. 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

The IGARSS 2015 technical program will include the following themes:Data Analysis Methods;
Missions, Sensors and Calibration;
Data Management and Education.

In addition special scientific themes (related to both the IGARSS 2015 main theme and the EXPO 2015 exhibition) will be addressed, including:Monitoring natural disasters (subsidence, landslides, floods, fires, etc.);
Exposure and hazard mapping;
Emergency response;
Damage mapping;
Food security;
Global crop monitoring.
Student prize competition
IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing student members are invited to submit a paper to the IGARSS Student Prize 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.
