TIE Events

The third annual Technology, Industry, and Education (TIE) track will host professionals from around the world, in a variety of engagement formats, to discuss and explore the state of the art in geospatial technology and its rapid evolution.

Industry Workshop

The TIE track industry workshop is designed as an opportunity for conference participants to learn about platform software capabilities available to remote sensing professionals. In these sessions, industry representatives will provide a hands on introduction to the modern, large-scale compute capabilities that are available to the remote sensing professional. Stay tuned for further announcements regarding the line-up.

Young Professionals' Mixer

The young professionals' (YP) mixer is a chance for GRSS YPs to have an informal meet and greet and to network with accomplished professionals from industry and academia. Senior GRSS members will be available to share stories about their careers and offer advice to the YPs.

Women in GRSS Luncheon

This Women in GRSS lunch will provide an informal platform for men & women to interact and network with senior members and the Women in GRSS Forum speakers. This will be the 8th consecutive year. Everyone is welcome! Get your ticket on the IGARSS 2019 registration website!

Women in GRSS Forum

Launched 3 years ago, the IEEE Women in GRSS Forum provides professional women in GRSS, whether in industry, academia, or government, the opportunity to create communities that fuel innovation, facilitate knowledge sharing, and provide support through a session designed to foster discussion and collaboration. Our mission is to "inspire, develop, empower, and advance" women in GRSS. No registration necessary, simply join us at IGARSS 2019 to learn, be inspired, and network!

Industry Forum

The third annual Remote Sensing Industry Forum will host professionals from around the world to discuss industry's perspective of geospatial technology and its rapid evolution.

Code Workshop

The purpose of the TIE Forum is to cross the bridge between the research efforts of academia and the technology of industry. In this spirit, the code workshop is designed to build hands-on experience with software tools and data. Bring your laptop and your own project ideas or join in moving forward existing projects. We will have prepared projects suitable to all different experience levels with various end goals (analysis, visualization, querying, etc.). We will also have developers available throughout the day for questions and coding assistance. Stay tuned for further announcements regarding the focus and details of this workshop.

Three Minute Thesis®

3MT®, founded by the University of Queensland in 2008, is an academic competition that cultivates students’ presentation and research communication skills, and challenges them to describe their research within three minutes to a general audience with one static slide. The competition is open to all students attending IGARSS 2019. Students will be able to submit videos to a video platform of their choice and the 10 best presenters will be selected to present to a panel of judges at IGARSS 2019. Prizes will be awarded to top 3 presenters.
