ASPRS GEO WEEK 2020 Technical Program is Going Virtual in June
The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing: The Imaging and Geospatial Information Society announces its 2020 virtual technical program.
Due to continuing uncertainties and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, ASPRS has made the difficult decision to withdraw from the Geo Week 2020 face-to-face event currently scheduled at the McCormick Center in Chicago, Illinois on July 27-29. We are offering all presenters originally accepted for the March event in Washington, DC the opportunity to share their work in the ASPRS 2020 Annual Conference Virtual Technical Program, a series of online technical sessions during the week of June 22 – 26, 2020.
Because the ASPRS 2020 Annual Conference Virtual Technical Program is being hosted, organized, and managed by ASPRS alone, there will be a new, separate registration process and fee for all presenters and attendees. Existing Geo Week 2020 conference registrations are NOT TRANSFERABLE to this new ASPRS event. You may contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to request a refund for all or part of your Geo Week 2020 registration or transfer your 2020 registration to Geo Week 2021.
The ASPRS 2020 Annual Conference Virtual Technical Program is open for both presenters and attendees at http://conferences.asprs.org/geoweek-2020. Registrants will be given access to all of the online technical sessions as live webinars and as on-demand recordings. The full program will be published on the conference website on June 8. 2020.
Registration fees for presenters and attendees are shown below. ASPRS members are eligible for a discount. Non-members who join ASPRS during the conference registration process will also be eligible for the member discount.
ASPRS Individual Member $150
ASPRS Student Member $ 50
Non-Member Individual + 1-year ASPRS membership $300
Non-Member Student + 1-year ASPRS membership $100
Important dates and deadlines are as follows:
May 13, 2020 Online Registration open
May 25, 2020 Presenter Registration deadline
June 8, 2020 Virtual Technical Program published
June 22 – 26, 2020 Live Technical Sessions daily between the hours of 11 AM and 6 PM Eastern Daylight Time
We hope that the ASPRS 2020 Annual Conference Virtual Technical Program gives our Geo Week 2020 presenters the forum to share their important work publicly without further delays. We also hope that this virtual program will attract many new attendees from around the world who would not have been able to travel to either Washington DC or Chicago for a traditional face-to-face conference. We hope to “see” you there!
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us by email at email@example.com.
