Machine Intelligence for GeoAnalytics and Remote Sensing (MIGARS) 2023 is the first of its kind effort to have a joint event of two primary emerging IEEE Societies; Geoscience and Remote Sensing (GRSS) and Computational Intelligence Society (CIS). MIGARS aims to explore the confluence of advances in machine intelligence (MI) approaches, geoscience, geo-analytics(GA), and remote sensing (RS). Thanks to the revolutionary developments in remote sensor technology, data acquisitions have grown leaps and bounds to stream and are too big by volume, variety, and veracity. The challenge is handling, processing, and automating geo-data from various sources such as multi-platform RS sensors and IoT devices and making intelligent decisions on the fly. The focus of the conference is to connect researchers from computing, MI, GA and RS domains and look for the potential use of intelligent computational approaches for geo-data based applications and serve society at large. This Conference was technically co-sponsored by IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) and ACM Hyderabad Deccan Chapter.
