Welcome to the ISPRS Student Consortium!


The International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Student Consortium (ISPRS SC) is the official representation of the students and the youth to ISPRS.

The main purpose of the ISPRS SC is to link students, young researchers and professionals in different countries, who are interested in photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences. ISPRS SC also aims to provide a platform for exchange of information and to organize student-specific events and other activities that integrate students and the youth more effectively into ISPRS activities.





The dates for the postponed XXIV ISPRS Congress to be held in Nice, France, have now been set at 4 - 10 July 2021.

We hope that this information will enable you to move any hotel booking and flights you may have already booked, and thus reduce costs.

The ISPRS Student Consortium Awards

Together with Council, the ISPRS Student Consortium is re-opening the call for the Excellence Award.

The ISPRS Student Consortium Excellence Award commends students and young researchers for publishing outstanding papers in any ISPRS publication, such as journals, Annals, and Archives. 

Science Committees of ISPRS events, editors of ISPRS journals, and Student Consortium members may recommend papers for the ISPRS Student Consortium Excellence Award.

Please read the Eligibility, Nomination and Selection on this page.

Nominations can be sent to the ISPRS SC President, sc-chair@isprs.org, by 30 March 2020. Please send a copy to the ISPRS SC email, sc@isprs.org.

The Excellence Award will be given in the ISPRS Congress 2020 in Nice, France.



The ISPRS SC Webinar Series 2020: Deep Learning for Photogrammetric Analysis and Remote Sensing [Resources Available]

In today’s era of big data, deep learning techniques are becoming more vital to pursuing data intensive science. International space agencies are launching missions after missions and data are also collected using airborne and terrestrial remote sensing techniques at the regional and local levels. Exploring the potential and variety of applications from the vast quantity of remote sensing imagery calls for new tools that can automate and optimize the extraction of reliable and useful information and facilitate subsequent analyses.

The interest in deep learning in the fields of remote sensing and photogrammetry is increasing rapidly due to its capability to address the challenges in image processing and how it can harness the computing power of existing technologies.

The first webinar of the ISPRS SC Webinar Series for this year is on the basics of deep learning for photogrammetric analysis and remote sensing featuring Dr. Konrad Schindler of ETH Zurich. The lecture covers the basics of deep learning, including perceptron, training deep networks and examples on convolutional neural networks (CNN).  

The recording and presentation can be found on this link.
