The ISPRS Student Consortium Awards
The ISPRS Student Consortium Excellence Award
The ISPRS Student Consortium Excellence Award commends students and young researchers for publishing outstanding papers in any ISPRS publication, such as journals, Annals, and Archives.
The award is given annually to the best paper demonstrating state‐of‐the‐art applications and innovative ideas in the fields of photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information science. The Excellence Award is presented at the ISPRS Congress, the Geospatial Week, and at a selected Technical Commission Midterm Symposium in the subsequent calendar year.
- The applicant must be the first author of the published paper.
- At the time of submission of the paper, the applicant must either be:
a) Currently enrolled in a graduate or postgraduate degree program (Master’s or Doctoral degree); proof of enrolment from the university must be submitted for verification.
b) Completed the degree not more than 6 months prior to the submission of the paper; a certificate of graduation from the university must be submitted for verification.
Science Committees of ISPRS events, editors of ISPRS journals, and Student Consortium members may recommend papers for the ISPRS Student Consortium Best Paper Award. Nominations are to be sent to the Student Consortium President, by 1 February of the following year.
Each year, nominated papers will be evaluated by a jury comprised of the ISPRS Student Consortium President, two further representatives of ISPRS Student Consortium Board, one representative of the ISPRS Student Consortium Advisory Committee, and one member appointed by The ISPRS Foundation. Based on the criteria decided by the jury, the paper receiving the highest overall ranking will be short-listed for the award.
For each short-listed paper, a certificate will be presented to the winner at the next major ISPRS event. From the four selected winners of the four years preceding Congress, the jury selects one to be awarded the ISPRS Student Consortium Best Paper Award for the past Congress period, receiving a certificate and a prize to the amount of US $1,000, which is presented by representatives of the ISPRS Student Consortium Board and The ISPRS Foundation at Congress.
