Ph.D. student wins award at the 2015 IGARSS conference


August 3, 2015

Filipe Condessa, a Ph.D. student in CMU-Portugal Information and Communication Technologies Institute, won the Mikio Takagi student award at the 2015 International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS) conference. Hosted by the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, IGARSS is a professional organization dedicated to the advancement of the theory, concepts, and techniques of science and engineering as applied to remote sensing of the Earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, as well as the processing, interpretation, application, and dissemination of this information.

The Mikio Takagi Student Prize (MTStP) recognizes a student who has presented an outstanding paper at IGARSS. Condessa’s paper, "Supervised hyperspectral image classification with rejection,” was the top IGARSS student paper.

“It feels great to receive this recognition from the Geoscience and Remote Sensing community,” Condessa said. “Being awarded this prize while representing my two homes, Carnegie Mellon University and Instituto Superior Técnico (IST-UL), is wonderful. It is reassuring to repay the confidence CMU, IST-UL and my advisors, Jelena Kovačević and José Bioucas-Dias, have instilled in me the past four years.”
