The ISPRS Geospatial Week (ISPRS GSW), held every two years, is one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive technical conferences focused on Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing to Geospatial information. This year, ISPRS GSW 2017 will be held in Wuhan, and a huge number of specialists and experts from all over the world will come together to join this conference.
Mountain regions around the world and the European Alps in particular are subject to many different dynamic processes. Examples are landslides and rockfall, avalanches and glacial retreat, changes in permafrost coverage and vegetation adaptation to climate change. Some of these processes may directly affect human lives, like landslides, while others may give a clear indication of the impact of predicted climate change. The ISPRS Innsbruck Summer School aims at bringing together two groups of young researchers: one that is notably interested in the processes, and one that is specialized in a scala of different close- and near-range monitoring techniques.
During the General Assembly in the XXIII ISPRS Congress held in Prague, Czech Republic last 17 July 2016, a new set of board members for the ISPRS SC to serve for the term 2016-2020 was approved.
