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 Student Consortium Awards
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 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.
The Department of Geomatics and Land Management at Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda hosts a biennial conference series on Advances in Geomatics Research. This conference is motivated by the need to promote Geomatics Scholarship, build professional networks, and to keep abreast with the state of the art in the country and region at large. This year, we were privileged to host the 5th edition of the conference from the 1st – 2nd August 2019 with the theme ‘Geomatics for Development’.
The International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Geospatial Week (ISPRS GSW) is a biennial internationally scientific event that aims to bring together experts, professionals, researchers, and students working in the fields of remote sensing, photogrammetry, and GIS. It also serves as a venue for sharing the latest developments both in science and industry. This year, the fourth ISPRS GSW held from 10 – 14 June 2019 was organized by the University of Twente in Enschede, the Netherlands. Two ISPRS Student Consortium (ISPRS SC) board members participated in the event – Sheryl Rose Reyes, Chair and Charmaine Cruz, Newsletter Editor-in-Chief.
