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 GeoMixer kick-off event
The GeoMixer monthly event is a new opportunity to network with other remote sensing scientists at all career stages from around the world!
This virtual mixer will support networking with other participants that you may not have otherwise met by assigning participants into a series of small breakout rooms in Zoom. This event is inspired by IALE-NA 2020's Student Mixer and our successful first GeoMixer event at Geo for Good 2020.
This event is in collaboration with the Ladies of Landsat, Sisters of SAR, MS IEEE GRSS Matto Grosso do Sul, ASPRS SAC and AARS. Note that this event is open to all, not just students and young professionals!
The ISPRS Council is pleased to announce the introduction of a new Golden Open Access journal, the ISPRS Open Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (IOJPRS), starting on January 1, 2021, and published by Elsevier. As an independent third journal of ISPRS, IOJPRS will offer additional possibilities for authors to publish their latest results in a high-quality peer-reviewed scientific outlet under the umbrella of ISPRS.
Call for Applications: The ISPRS Student Consortium Leadership and Service Mentorship Programme
Are you interested to lead an international student organization? Would you like to learn from the current ISPRS SC Board of Directors on how to develop and implement ideas that support the youth in their personal and professional growth? Then, apply for the ISPRS Student Consortium Leadership and Mentoring Programme!
The ISPRS Student Consortium Leadership and Service Mentorship Programme primarily aims to train and familiarize qualified individuals with the responsibilities of the position they are interested in and about the activities of the Consortium. In addition, they will be involved and immersed in the actual work done by the current Board of Directors and will be given a set of milestones that must be achieved by the end of the programme. Lastly, this programme aims to provide skills necessary not only on the professional level, but also skills that can contribute to one’s personal growth through cooperation and coordination of activities and development of ideas to foster the career advancement and professional progress of the members of the Consortium.
The ISPRS SC is led by the Board of Directors, composed of six officers: The President, Vice President, Newsletter Editor-in-Chief, Website Administrator, Social Media Coordinator and Newsletter Designer. Each is elected for a maximum of four (4) years which end at the subsequent ISPRS Congress, where new officers are elected. Due to the current pandemic, the tenure of the current Board of Directors will end during the XXIV ISPRS Congress 2021 in Nice, France.
At the end of this programme, individuals who excelled in achieving their milestones and exemplified dedication and enthusiasm in working for the Consortium will be personally nominated by the Board of Directors for the next term.
This December 21 (12PM GMT), we will be hosting a special Virtual Rooms - Bring Your Own Sunshine to discuss the ISPRS Leadership and Service Mentoring Programme. This will be followed by a Q&A session with the current Board of Directors.
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.
