Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing (CJRS) Conference Special Issue paper (Optional): Deadline: September 2009

In addition to the mandatory Conference Proceedings Paper (due June 12), authors of papers presented at the Conference will also have the option to submit a full-length paper for peer-review and possible publication in the Special Conference Issue of the Canadian Journal of Remote Sensing (CJRS). The full-length paper for the CJRS Conference Special Issue will be peer-reviewed, and is optional for those authors interested. The same CJRS reviewing standards and page charges will apply as with any regular CJRS issue paper.


a) The Proceedings Paper (12 pages max) is required for the Conference, regardless. The full-length CJRS paper is optional - it is an opportunity to further develop your work, for example, based on feedback received from your Proceedings Paper and Conference presentation.

b) The Proceedings Paper and CJRS paper will be different. The Proceedings Paper is shorter, unrefereed, and there are no page charges. The CJRS paper will be a full-length paper, will be reviewed, and has page charges.

c) The shorter Proceedings Paper is due June 12 and is required. The full-length CJRS paper is optional, and is due September 2009.

If you choose not to submit a full-length paper to CJRS, you are still required to submit a Proceedings Paper (12 page limit) and attend the conference.
