ISPRS Congress Will be Hybrid in 2022
The next ISPRS Congress will be held in Nice, France, from 6-11 June 2022. The ISPRS Congress is the largest scientific event of the photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information science field.
The Congress of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) is normally held every four years. This rhythm has only been disrupted three times since the ISPRS was born in 1910: during the two world wars and during the COVID-19 pandemic.
After Prague in 2016, the XXIV Congress was to be held in 2020 in Nice, but the international health context forced ISPRS and the French organizing committee to replace the traditional meeting with digital events in 2020 and 2021. While these two events have allowed many authors to present and publish their work, a physical event is eagerly awaited by the community to allow scientific networking, to encourage interdisciplinary cross-fertilization, to stimulate inter-generational exchanges, and also to develop the crucial links between science and industry.
Considering possible travelling uncertainties in June 2022 from some countries, there will be possibilities for remote presentations by authors who are unable to travel to Nice. Remote participation will also be possible, but will give access only to a selection of sessions (some more information will be available on the congress website from March onwards). Nevertheless, all sessions will be recorded and available in replay for registered participants.
The scientific contributions submitted for the three editions (2020, 2021 and 2022) of the XXIV Congress total up to 3,400, testifying the very strong dynamism of the scientific and industrial community in the field of geospatial imagery and geographic information.
In parallel with the scientific sessions organized by the five commissions of ISPRS, exciting keynotes will give an overall reflection of the status in all the areas of ISPRS; a technology track will enable the major players of the geospatial industry to give oral presentations of their latest innovations, together with a large exhibition; a prospective forum will address the interactions between science, industry and public organizations on hot topics of the geospatial community in order to provide roadmaps.
In addition to the professional and human interest of such an event, Nice – the cosmopolitan and multicultural capital of the French Riviera – is the ideal place to host an unforgettable ISPRS Congress.
