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.
ISPRS SC Webinar Series - Digital Animal Conservation: From Flying UAVs to Mapping with Deep Learning
Monitoring wildlife populations is a complex business, since it involves monitoring over large areas, with complex terrains and counting living animals that move (and can also be dangerous at close range). For all these reasons, as well as to increase frequency and reduce costs, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are more and more used. UAVs indeed acquire large amounts of data, but then also raise the problem of detecting and counting the animals, in order to provide accurate counts, in an automatic way.
In this talk, Dr. Devis Tuia from Wageningen University will talk about how deep learning can help, especially when assisted by enthusiastic nature lovers willing to screen images for protecting wildlife.
Date and time: 21 May 2020, 2:00 PM UTC.
Deadline for registration is on 18 May 2020.

The ISPRS SC Virtual Rooms
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.
The resources will be made available soon. Thank you for your patience.
ISPRS Congress Postponed
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.
We are pleased to announce that the Individual Membership Registration is now open for submissions.

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.
