Call for Papers

Special Issue from the
40th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing and Geomatics Atlantic 2019
Remote Sensing & Geomatics: Common Perspectives and NewSpace

In the CSP Journal Geomatica (

The 40th Canadian Symposium on Remote Sensing and Geomatics Atlantic 2019 held 4-6 June 2019.

Participants in this year’s conference are invited to continue this discussion through a full manuscript submission to a special issue in the peer-reviewed journal Geomatica.

Manuscript submissions should be a significant enhancement on the papers published for the 40th CSRS & GA 2019. As a general rule-of thumb, a minimum of 50% of the content should be new and previously unpublished. All submissions must be less than 10,000 words per the journal’s guidelines. Submitted manuscripts will undergo an entirely new review process and reviewers will not have access to reviews of the conference submissions.

Please address any questions or comments to the Guest Editors
