Submissions & Calls

The 40th CSRS and Geomatics Atlantic 2019 will include General Sessions and Special Sessions, building on the symposium theme “Common Perspectives and NewSpace”.

How to submit

Deadline extended to February 1, 2019

Please do not submit your abstract via email.

The 40th CSRS & GA 2019 is using the Ex Ordo system for electronic abstract submission. You are asked to create your account here and then follow the instructions to insert your abstract submission. Thank you!

If there are any specific questions, please contact the Technical Committee Chairs by email – Desmond Power, Dirk Werle or Monica Wachowicz

Important Dates
  • Extended to February 1st, 2019 – Abstract Submission Deadline
  • February 18, 2019 – Notification of Accepted Abstracts
  • April 28, 2019 – Early Registration Deadline
  • June 4-6, 2019 – 40th CSRS & Geomatics Atlantic 2019 at UNB, Fredericton, NB

Submissions of extended abstracts (1000 words) are invited in all areas of remote sensing and geomatics related fields, including but not limited to those listed below.

Abstracts for General Sessions and Special Sessions will be reviewed by the Technical Committee and by the Special Session chairs, respectively. All abstract submissions will be subject to the same review criteria and accepted abstracts will have equal importance and profile at the Symposium.

Submissions made to this open call for abstracts must indicate the preferred topic from the General Session topic list.  The Technical Program Committee, in coordination with the Special Session chairs, will finalize all General and Special Sessions for the final program based on the abstracts received and accepted for the Symposium.
