Welcome to the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Kolkata Chapter!
On behalf of the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (IEEE-GRSS) Kolkata Chapter, I am pleased to welcome you to the second GRSS Chapter in India. The Chapter was formed on September 19, 2012. The main aim of the Chapter is to unite academicians, experts, analysts, professionals, students, and researchers to a collaborative common platform. We plan to gather experts from all over the world in Remote sensing, Data Science and Machine Learning, and facilitate the participants to get both theoretical and hands-on experience on different aspects of this arena. We are aiming to create a forum for exchanging ideas and information on current research studies, challenges, system developments, and practical experiences in various interdisciplinary emerging fields dedicated to remotely sensed data.
IEEE Kolkata GRSS chapter has been actively holding technical seminars. Eleven lectures, nine workshops, one conference and one international school were held during the period 2017-18. This chapter has been selected as the nodal chapter for CHAPNET program which is an international collaboration among several chapters from different countries successively for both the years 2017 and 2018.
It is expected that the momentum will continue in the forthcoming years to further improve the chapter activities and provide more benefits to our IEEE GRSS members.
