It consists of invited presentations, a sub-venue on sustainable ocean communication, a sub-venue on the application of high-resolution remote sensing in urban development, a sub-venue on intelligent sensing of multimodal remote sensing data and a sub-venue on intelligent remote sensing imagery, recovery and identification.
More than 150 domestic and foreign scholars, students and researchers assembled at the conference site from more than 100 universities and research institutes, including Wuhan University, China University of Geosciences, Suzhou University of Science and Technology, Shandong Jianzhu University, University of New South Wales, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Tsinghua University, Tongji University, Harbin Engineering University, City University of Macau, Glasgow University, Ministry of Natural Resources, National Marine Environmental Forecasting Center and China Electronics Technology Group Corporation Limited (CETC). Ruizhi Chen, Academician of the Finnish Academy of Sciences and Humanities and professor of Wuhan University, Professor Jian Yao of Wuhan University, Professor Jun Li of IEEE Fellow from China University of Geosciences, Professor Xiuping Jia of IEEE Fellow from the University of New South Wales, Professor Wei He of Wuhan University, Professor Chao Chen of Suzhou University of Science and Technology, Researcher Danfeng Hong of Institute of Aerospace Information Innovation of Chinese Academy of Sciences and Associate Professor Hongming Zhang of Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications were invited to attend the conference. The main venue of the conference was presided over by Professor Wang Yi and Associate Professor Chen Tao of China University of Geosciences.
Professor Jian Yao of Wuhan University delivered a speech at the opening ceremony, extending a cordial welcome to all the participating experts, scholars, teachers and students. He pointed out that the current era of artificial intelligence also ushers in new opportunities and challenges to the development of surveying and mapping remote sensing technology, and artificial intelligence is setting off a technological and industrial revolution. He also claimed that surveying and mapping remote sensing is both a beneficiary and a contributor to artificial intelligence technology. It was hoped that this conference would provide a high-end and professional academic exchange opportunity for experts, scholars, engineers, technicians and users engaged in geology, surveying and mapping, remote sensing and marine communication.

On the morning of April 16, scholars went to the Yifu Museum of China University of Geosciences for academic investigation, followed the introduction of lecturers, and witnessed the traces of geological ores and fossil specimens in the collection of China University of Geosciences that confirmed the long history.
Amid the two-day conference, many cutting-edge research results have been shared around remote sensing monitoring, marine ecological civilization construction, marine acoustic telemetry, sustainable marine communication and other topics. Scholars extended a heated discussion, which expanded the academic perspective and fully reflected the influence, academic recognition and extensive academic cooperation of the ICGMRS conference in the fields of geology, surveying and mapping and remote sensing.
2023 4th International Conference on Geology, Surveying and Mapping and Remote Sensing (ICGMRS 2023) has been successfully concluded, and the SCI journal Remote Sensing is still in the process of soliciting contributions, which is expected to be closed in October. At the same time, please look forward to the 2024 5th International Conference on Geology, Surveying and Mapping and Remote Sensing (ICGMRS 2024)!
