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 IEEE GRSS Young Professionals (YP) & ISPRS Student Consortium Summer School
The IEEE GRSS-YP and the ISPRS SC summer traditionally occur abroad every year and mainly features the integration of students and researchers in the area of remote sensing at the regional level. In other words, the regional sections and chapters of the IEEE / GRSS and ISPRS are responsible for organizing the events in their respective countries independently.
In Brazil, the joint event has been organized since 2015 on a yearly basis at the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR) in the city of Curitiba (Paraná). The event shifted to Presidente Prudente in 2016 (Sao Paulo), Lages in 2017 (Santa Catarina), Campo Grande in 2018 (Mato Grosso do Sul) and Sorocaba in 2019 (Sao Paulo).
This year’s event was first planned to be hosted in Belo Horizonte in 2020, and due to the current pandemic situation (COVID19), we will have the sixth edition of the event hosted in a virtual way with the theme "Emerging Trends in Remote Sensing Science and Applied Machine Learning"
The event is organized in several talks on every week starting from October 16 to December 11, with one to two weekly talks. It aims to guide the career of young professionals as well as higher education professionals, students of courses related to the area and graduate students who make use of Remote Sensing data and images. It consists of lectures and interactive sections given and moderated by prominent professionals who work in companies, teaching / research institutions and in academia.
ISPRS virtual event for the XXIV Congress edition of 2020
Nearly everything goes digital during the COVID-19 crisis, so does ISPRS. While the next physical Congress will be held in July 2021, many of the contributions submitted for the 2020 edition will be presented in the XXIV ISPRS Congress – Virtual event of the 2020 presentations which will take place on-line from August 31 to September 2nd, 2020
The 2020 edition will be free of charge for presenters and for the audience (but a pre-registration is mandatory in order to calibrate the bandwidth of live streaming).

The ISPRS SC Virtual Rooms - Resources Available
The ISPRS SC Virtual Rooms is an initiative that hopes to give another good reason to #StayAtHome in this quarantine season for many. It aims to help us enjoy our time at home by creating spaces to still remain connected with our communities. We are navigating a new way of strengthened communication, changing lifestyles, improving work and research practices and being mindful of what truly matters. The ISPRS SC would like to provide a platform where everyone can meet and connect, and we have prepared different virtual rooms for everyone.
We are pleased to announce that the Individual Membership Registration is now open for submissions.
According to the Statutes, Article III, Section 2: An Individual Member, i.e. a student pursuing undergraduate, master’s or doctorate (PhD) degrees or a young professional, is an individual involved in the science and engineering disciplines associated with imaging and geospatial information and shall be entitled to all rights and privileges of the Consortium applicable to Individual Members, including the right to vote.
The Remote Sensing in Defense Applications (Portuguese: Simpósio de Sensoriamento Remoto de Aplicações em Defesa, SERFA) (Fig. 1a) was organized by the Institute for Advanced Studies (IEAv) from November 10 – 14, 2019 in the city of Sorocaba, Sao Paulo State, Brazil with the theme “Space Technology, Markets and Building the New Brazilian Space Age.”
The 40th Asian Conference on Remote Sensing (ACRS 2019) was held from October 14 – 18 at the Daejeon Convention Center, Daejeon, South Korea. This year’s conference, which was organized in partnership with the Korean Society on Remote Sensing and the Daejeon Metropolitan Government, was themed “Progress of Remote Sensing for a Smart Future.” Student activities such as WEBCON9, Student Session, and Student Night were again organized this year.
The second Summer School of ISPRS for this year was hosted by Wroclaw University of Science and Technology (WUST) in Poland from 26th to 30th August 2019. It was jointly organized by WUST, Forest Research Institute, and ISPRS, with the support of the ISPRS Student Consortium.
