Welcome from the Chair

Dear Colleagues,

The 4th International Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing with a focus on “Advances in Remote Sensing for the 17 Sustainable Development Goals” will be held from 25-27 Jan 2022. The main purpose of the conference is to promote the use of remote sensing and geospatial information technology, to address challenging problems, to share the latest scientific progress, to minimize limitations and issues, to exchange innovative approaches, to demonstrate evidence-decision making processes, to enhance forward thinking for remote sensing, to formulate better management plans using geospatial data, to promote the value of remote sensing, and to draw a better plan for the future of geospatial information technology.

This is an excellent opportunity for remote sensing researchers and scientists to interact with each other, communicate with their colleagues, learn from each other, share ideas and results, help solve problems, and suggest alternative options for better future. The best part of this energetic and dynamic nature of the virtual international conference is that you do not need to travel anywhere to attend the conference. You can simply achieve the above opportunities from wherever you live.

Specifically, you do not need to seek financial support for travel, purchase air tickets, leave your house, office, and family, make hotel room reservation, take a trip, or adjust to the time zone where the conference takes place during the entire conference period.

Under the virtual conference settings, there are additional advantages: (1) engagement tools that keep energy levels high, (2) participants are given a voice, (3) far stronger attention is received while one is talking, (4) Q&A through “Chat” is also possible if you do not wish to raise your question verbally, (5) polls, (6) feedback through Chat, (7) use of symbols under “Reactions” function to show your voice, appreciation, or request, (8) greater reach with remote audience, and (9) the ability to deliver live and pre-recorded presentations simultaneously.

The main topics and sessions of the conference cover:

  1. Data Acquisitions from Ground, Airborne to Satellite Borne Sensors
  2. High Resolution Image Analysis
  3. Hyperspectral Image Data
  4. SAR Data Processing
  5. Terrestrial Data Use
  6. Ocean and other Water Issues
  7. Cryosphere Applications
  8. Agriculture Solutions
  9. Disaster Management

All accepted abstracts will be published on the website of the conference. You are required to submit an abstract (minimum 250—maximum 500 word limit). Please see the abstract guidelines at "Instructions for Authors").

After the conference, there will be a possibility to submit selected papers to the e-conference related journal Remote Sensing (Impact Factor (2020), 4.848, 5-Year Impact Factor (2020): 5.353; Top Open Access Journal in Remote Sensing) with a 20% discount on the APCs.

The manuscripts and presentations will be available on https://sciforum.net/event/ECRS-4 for discussion and rating during the time of the conference 25–27 Jan 2022.

Oral Presentations

Short talks will be 15 min long including questions (12+3 Q&A). The typical presentation should be up to 10–12-minute talk.

All presentations must be sent to the conference secretariat in advance so that, in case you are encountering technical difficulties, we could share your slides to the audience.

Presentation Slides
Authors are encouraged to prepare a presentation in PowerPoint or similar software, to be displayed online along with the Manuscript. Slides, if available, will be displayed directly in the website using Sciforum.net's proprietary slides viewer. Slides can be prepared in exactly the same way as for any traditional conference where research results can be presented. Slides should be converted to the PDF format before submission so that our process can easily and automatically convert them for online displaying.
Video Presentations
Besides their active participation within the forum, authors are also encouraged to submit video presentations. If you are interested in submitting, please contact the conference organizer at [email protected] to get to know more about the procedure. This is an unique way of presenting your paper and discuss it with peers from all over the world. Make a difference and join us for this project!
Presentation of Posters
Authors that wish to present a poster only, i.e. without proceedings paper, can do so in section H - Posters of this conference. Posters will be available on this conference website during and after the event. Like papers presented on the conference, participants will be able to ask questions and make comments about the posters. Posters that are submitted without paper will not be included in the proceedings of the conference.
Authors are asked to disclose that it is an extended version of the ECRS-4 conference paper in their cover letter, if that is the case. Expanded and high-quality papers in the conference can be considered articles if they fulfill the following requirements:

(1) The paper should be expanded to the size of a research article;

(2) The conference paper should be cited and noted on the first page of the paper. Remote Sensing does not publish pilot studies or studies with inadequate statistical power.

      Accepted File Formats
    • MS Word: Manuscript prepared in MS Word must be converted into a single file before submission. When preparing manuscripts in MS Word, the Electronic Conference on Remote Sensing Microsoft Word template file (see download below) must be used. Please do not insert any graphics (schemes, figures, etc.) into a movable frame which can superimpose the text and make the layout very difficult.
