The IGARSS 2010 theme is "Remote Sensing: Global Vision for Local Action" and the agenda is expected to include technical sessions, tutorials, exhibits, and social activities. A list of technical program topics is available at:

The plenary session will focus on the emerging field of community remote sensing. Rapid emergence of 'citizen science' and social networks is a promising new means for augmenting the foundation of knowledge provided by government-sponsored satellites and observing systems. To highlight the importance of these new tools, the emerging field of community remote sensing will be spotlighted in a yearlong series of projects leading up to the symposium plenary session.

Participation in IGARSS 2010 is open to all individuals interested in or working in the fields of geoscience and remote sensing.

Abstract submissions will be accepted through Friday, 11 December 2009.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) IGARSS 2010 Technical Program Committee will organize all accepted abstracts into either oral or interactive poster sessions based upon their potential contribution to the symposium and the composition of high-quality sessions. Additional information on abstract submission is available at:
