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 ISPRS SC Webinar Series 2020: Deep Learning for Photogrammetric Analysis and Remote Sensing
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).
Together with Council, the ISPRS Student Consortium has established two new awards.
The ISPRS Student Consortium Best Paper Award commends students and young researchers for publishing outstanding papers in any ISPRS publication, such as journals, Annals, and Archives. Nominations can be sent to the Student Consortium President (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 1 February 2020.
The ISPRS Student Consortium Service Award recognizes an individual who has rendered exceptional contributions to the Consortium during an ISPRS Congress term.
Nominations can be sent to the ISPRS Secretary General, email@example.com, by 1 February 2020.
Both awards will be first given in the ISPRS Congress 2020 in Nice, France.
Invitation from the Congress Director to the XXIV ISPRS Congress
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the French Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (SFPT), it will be my great pleasure to host you for the XXIVth ISPRS Congress in my home town of Nice from the 14th to the 20th of June 2020. Nice, the cosmopolitan and multicultural capital of the French Riviera, is the ideal place to host an unforgettable ISPRS Congress. Nice is an outstanding location between sea and mountains where culture and heritage meet with the cutting edge technology of Sophia Antipolis, the French Silicon Valley.
This 2020 congress will host over 3000 participants with leading specialists and technologists, engineers, researchers and students in the field of photogrammetry, remote sensing, and spatial information sciences coming from universities, research foundations, space agencies, mapping and cadaster agencies, public organisations and private companies, and end-users.
The rich program will include more than 2000 oral and poster scientific presentations, exciting keynote speeches, a geospatial prospective forum, an innovation forum, and an industry forum. All these events will enable participants to remain at the state-of-the-art on the currents trends in science, technology and business. Take this opportunity to meet and network with a very large number of experts, and to cross-fertilize with colleagues coming from neighbouring fields!
All the ISPRS 2020 team is looking forward to meet you in Nice.
Warmest regards, Nicolas Paparoditis – Congress Director
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.
