IIIT-B To Host 2023 IEEE India Geoscience And Remote Sensing Symposium

The International Institute of Information Technology Bangalore (IIIT-B) gears up to host the 2023 IEEE India Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (InGARSS 2023) from December 10-13, 2023. This symposium, the third in its series, serves as a vital platform for remote sensing and geoscience researchers and practitioners. Organized by the Bengaluru chapter of IEEE GRSS (Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society), the conference will showcase recent developments and advancements in geoscience and remote sensing technologies.

Prof. Debabrata Das, Director of IIIT-B, stated, "The symposium reflects our commitment to fostering knowledge exchange and collaboration in geoscience and remote sensing. We are honored to host esteemed speakers and guests who contribute significantly to these domains." He further stated that the symposium is taking place at a crucial moment when India is making huge strides in geoscience and space domains.

The event is scheduled to unfold at IIIT-Bangalore and will feature a comprehensive program including plenary keynote talks, research paper presentations, doctoral colloquium, tutorials, community events, industry presentations, and exhibits. Space technology events in collaboration with international agencies such as NASA/JPL, ISRO/NRSC, ESA, and DLR will also be highlighted.

Keynote Speakers include Dr. Harini Nagendra, an Ecologist from Azim Premji University, Bengaluru, Dr. Armando Marino from the University of Stirling, UK, and Mr. Rashmit Singh, CTO of Satsure, Bengaluru.

Distinguished Guests at the event include Chief Guest Dr. Sanghamitra Bandhyopadhyay, Director of the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Kolkata, and Guests of Honor Dr. Mariko Burgin, IEEE GRSS President, and Dr. Shiv Mohan, IEEE GRSS India Liaison.

Under the guidance of Dr. B. S. Daya Sagar from ISI-Bangalore, Dr. Avik Bhattacharya from IIT Bombay and Dr. Jaya Sreevalsan Nair of IIIT-B, with the distinguished Dr. Debabrata Das, Director of IIIT-B, serving as its chief patron, InGARSS 2023 is in capable hands. Dr. Mariko Burgin and Dr. Shiv Mohan contribute their wealth of expertise and global perspective to the symposium. Additionally, Dr. Shubha Pandey brings representation from the National Geospatial Programme, DST.

Geoscience involves the comprehensive study of the planet's structure, composition, and dynamic processes, encompassing its atmosphere, oceans, and solid surface. In tandem, remote sensing emerges as a crucial technological companion. In the pursuit of advancing knowledge and fostering collaboration, the symposium aims to provide a platform for experts, researchers, and enthusiasts in geoscience and remote sensing.

Event Highlights encompass the Opening Ceremony on December 10, 2023, featuring Dr. Sanghamitra Bandhyopadhyay. The program will also showcase special cultural events by IIIT-B students, featuring art performances, debates, and quizzes. Community events will focus on women in engineering, diversity-equity-inclusion, and young professionals. Additionally, there will be a DST-led program on capacity building by Dr. Shamita Kumar from Bharathi Vidyapeeth, exploring spatial thinking in STEAM education.

The conference expresses gratitude to its sponsors, including the Government of Karnataka’s Machine Intelligence and Robotics (MINRO) Center at IIIT-B, with support from Satsure, Mphasis F1 Foundation, Galaxeye, NRSC, HALG, TIH IIT Tirupati (IITTNiF), and grants from the Department of Science and Technology (DST) and ISRO.
