We are currently accepting proposals for conference sessions that address one or more of these four themes. Further description of these themes can be found here
  1. Observing the earth for the benefit of all
  2. A half-century of discovery
  3. Exploring the state of the art
  4. The next 50 years

Session proposals will be due August 27, 2021 and the Call for Abstracts will follow. Special sessions are an appropriate way to organize around a special topic or interest group or highlight significant accomplishments by teams. We also encourage other session proposals that deal with issues and advances in the broader field of Earth observation. All proposals will be considered in the context of the overall structure of the meeting and availability of time slots for proposed sessions. 
 
Sessions may be general proposals or include invited contributors. Presentation slots not filled by invitation will be open for general abstract submissions and session organizers will be expected to review submissions selecting their session.

Proposals for the following types of sessions will be accepted:

  • Standard presentation session: Presentation session consisting of 12 minute talks with 3 minutes for questions. Sessions may include 4 talks (60 minutes) or 6 talks (90 minutes).
  • Short presentation session: Presentation session consisting of 3 minute research talks. Sessions can include up to 10 talks (30 minutes).
  • Short visualization session: Presentation session consisting of 3 minute talks focused on data visualization, e.g. map products, dashboards, interactive plots, cartographic tools. Sessions can include up to 10 talks (30 minutes).
  • Illustrated poster session: Focused poster session with posters grouped by topic or theme. Short introductions at the start of the session, followed by poster viewing.
  • Workshops: Workshops are typically scheduled prior to the conference and run from 2 to 4 hours. We encourage both proposals to lead workshop sessions, as well as suggestions for workshop topics.
  • Other: We welcome creative proposals for other types of sessions, including but not limited to Town Hall, small panels, large “Ask me anything” panels, tools demos.
