Kia Ora Welcome!
The Local Organising Committee, on behalf of the IEEE-Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) and IEEE-Computational Intelligence Society (CIS), warmly invite you to join the second edition of the Machine Intelligence for GeoAnalytics and Remote Sensing (MIGARS) conference at Shed 6, Queens Wharf, Wellington, New Zealand, from 8 to 10 April 2024.
MIGARS aims to explore the interface of machine intelligence approaches with geosciences, spatial analytics, and remote sensing. With the tremendous developments in remote sensing technology, data acquisitions and sensing platforms, digital data 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 remote sensors and Internet-of-Things devices, informing decision-making and monitoring our planet.
The conference focuses on connecting researchers from various disciplines, including computation/artificial intelligence, engineering, remote sensing, hydrology, agriculture and geosciences, and looking for the potential use of intelligent computational approaches for geo-data-based applications and serving society at large.
Our conference will be held in the beautiful city of Wellington, buzzing with cultural activities, restaurants, and nightlife, all within the heart of Aotearoa-New Zealand.
We are looking forward to greeting you in Wellington.

Welcome to Wellington, the vibrant capital of New Zealand
Situated at the southern end of the North Island and nestled between green hills and a sparkling harbour, Wellington, New Zealand, is a little city with a big heart.
Surrounded by nature and fuelled by creative energy, Wellington is a compact city with a potent mix of culture, history, nature and cuisine.
Wander through hidden laneways to discover street art and follow the sculpture walks along Wellington’s waterfront. Discover the stories of Aotearoa New Zealand, in world-class museums and galleries – the interactive and immersive national museum, Te Papa, is a must-visit. Ride the iconic Wellington Cable Car for fantastic city views while you enjoy an ice cream at the top.
Immerse yourself in nature and explore by bike, foot, kayak, or ferry. Relax at Oriental Bay, Wellington’s golden-sand inner-city beach, before walking the Southern Walkway trail to Wellington’s rugged south coast. Venture north to explore the Remutaka Cycle Trail, one of New Zealand’s Great Rides, or the Escarpment Track, where you can experience spectacular views of the Kāpiti Coast as you scale steep steps, ridgelines, and swing bridges.
Don’t forget to check your visa or NZeTA requirements. We encourage you to organise these well in advance. Visas can require 3 months to process. More details here.
