ASPRS Annual Conference at Geo Week 2020 to go virtual because of COVID-19

May 28, 2020  - By


The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS): The Imaging and Geospatial Information Society has withdrawn its ASPRS 2020 Annual Conference Virtual Technical Program from the Geo Week 2020 face-to-face event and will be going virtual because of COVID-19.

Geo Week 2020 is currently scheduled to take place July 27-29 at the McCormick Center in Chicago.

According to ASPRS, all presenters originally accepted for the March event in Washington, D.C., will have the opportunity to share their work in the ASPRS 2020 Annual Conference Virtual Technical Program, a series of online technical sessions taking place June 22-26.

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, ASPRS said. Registrants may contact if they wish to request a refund for all or part of their Geo Week 2020 registration or transfer their 2020 registration to Geo Week 2021.

Those who register for the ASPRS 2020 Annual Conference Virtual Technical Program will be given access to all of the online technical sessions, as well as live webinars and on-demand recordings, ASPRS said. The full program will e published on the conference website on June 8.
