How to submit an Abstract?

Thank you very much for your interest in the 36th International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment! The following steps should give you a guideline for the submission of your abstract (deadline 09 November 2014). You are kindly asked to prepare your abstract as PDF file locally on your own computer, using the templates supplied below, and then to submit the PDF you have generated.

  • Use the link "Abstract Submission".
  • You are asked to login to the Copernicus Office Meeting Organizer. Use your account data or create a new account.
  • Select the Theme of your interest.
  • Fill in the submittal information about Title, all Author(s), and Affiliation(s) of author(s).
  • Use the template for WORD (doc) or LaTeX (tex) to generate your abstract as a PDF file.
  • Upload your prepared abstract (PDF file).
  • The online system then embeds your abstract PDF file in an umbrella template including the automatic generation of the actual header. The outcome is a complete abstract PDF file.
  • If the conversion of your abstract fails please specify your problems, we will then take care.
  • Submit your abstract.
  • Once you successfully upload your abstract, you will receive an email including a link which will guide the access to the Copernicus' abstract management system.

In case any questions arise, please contact us at

Clarification: Due to many requests, ISRSE likes to clarify that a full paper submission based on an accepted abstract is encouraged by ISRSE. However, the submission of a full paper is not mandatory for an accepted presentation during the symposium.

General Remarks

  • Abstracts should comprise 300 words, containing sufficient details for evaluation.
  • All ISRSE36 abstracts will be reviewed for acceptance to the symposium.
  • ISRSE encourages authors to extend the accepted abstracts to full papers (8 pages). The full papers will be published electronically in the International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences.
  • For further details on how to format your abstract, please refer to the ISPRS author's guideline (orange book): Abstracts should be clear, concise and written in English with correct spelling and good sentence structure.
  • We recommend that the abstract is carefully compiled and thoroughly checked, in particular with regard to the list of authors, before submission in order to avoid last minute changes.
  • The submission of an abstract carries with it the obligation that it is actually presented at the meeting by the author or by one of the co-authors.
