You are cordially invited to join us at the University of Cape Town for IGARSS 2009. We are especially excited to be hosting IGARSS 2009 in Cape Town, the Mother City of South Africa.

IGARSS will be taking place in South Africa’s oldest university and one of Africa’s leading teaching and research institutions -- The University of Cape Town (UCT). This conference promises to bring together a broad range of scientists and engineers, from students to senior decision makers, employed worldwide in leading academic institutions and government and industrial laboratories.

Opportunities for sponsorship, advertising and exhibit space are varied to meet participants’ budgets and goals, and will be outlined in the prospectus. We encourage our past exhibitors and new partners to reserve their booth space early. There will be an application form posted here by the end of January.

Who Should Participate?

IEEE / GRSS

The IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) is a professional organization dedicated to the advancement of the theory, concepts, and techniques of science and engineering as applied to remote sensing of the earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, as well as the processing, interpretation, application and dissemination of this information.

Originally founded in 1962 as the Geoscience Electronics Group, since its reorganization as the GRSS in 1981, the Society has contributed world renowned findings through its internationally subscribed monthly journals: “Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing” (TGARS) and Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters (GRSL), and gathered the world’s top professionals in regional and international meetings.

The Society takes great pride in serving its growing membership, supporting student research and bestowing the field’s most prestigious awards at the annual IGARSS Awards Ceremony. IEEE GRSS looks to the future with great anticipation for opportunities to collaborate on technological advances in the applications of remote sensing. We invite your participation and support of IGARSS science and technology.

IEEE GRSS Membership Expertise

2009 International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS 2009)

The IEEE GRSS annually sponsors the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS), the premier world symposium on this topic. It is held annually with alternate years in North American and international venues. This prestigious meeting has become an international focus of remote sensing programs and activities, each year drawing many hundreds of scientists and engineers from around the world to become familiar with current research and technology and discuss instruments, techniques, models, uses and programs of global interest.

Co-Sponsorship and Grant Opportunities

To maximize your organization’s exposure at the symposium, you may co-sponsor the symposium in the form of a grant or you may co-sponsor a specific symposium function, event or promotional item. By participating in one of the many meeting co-sponsorship and grant opportunities, your organization will be recognized in additional locations, depending on the donation level.

Raise awareness of your organization’s participation each day by taking advantage of sponsorship opportunities and activities happening throughout the week at the Symposium and Exhibition.

Sample sponsorship options include but are not limited to:

Government and Corporate Grants – Support IGARSS 2009 at any contribution level for general symposium use and enjoy special benefits.

Corporate Direct Support – Choose to purchase symposium items and donate them directly to IGARSS 2009 and receive all applicable benefits of the rewards program. Please contact IGARSS 2009 Exhibits to discuss options.

If your company would like to support the symposium in other ways or at other levels, please contact IGARSS 2009 Exhibits and we will be happy to assist in customizing a sponsorship for you.
