ISPRS TC II Mid Term Symposium

Technical Commission II " Toward photogrammetry 2020"

ISPRS Technical Commission II "Photogrammetry" focuses, at various scales, on geometric, radiometric and multi-temporal aspects of image- and range-based 3D surveying and modeling. Specifically Commission II deals with image orientation, point cloud generation and processing, 3D feature extraction, scene understanding, sensor and data fusion, sensor characterization, machine learning for geospatial data analysis and big data techniques for massive data processing. Applications in the fields of mapping, industry, heritage, space, underwater and environment are considered. 
We are looking forward to welcome researchers, practioners and companies in the field of photogrammetry, computer vision, image processing and similar to present and discuss their results and activities. The Symposium will feature 4 days with plenary and parallel sessions, oral and poster presentations as well as keynote speakers from research and commercial domains and an exhibition of the most important business players in the photogrammetric and geospatial domain.

The event is organized in collaboration with SIFET (Italian Society of Photogrammetry and Topography)JSPRS (Japan Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing) and ARIDA (Japanese Association for Real-time Imaging and Dynamic Analysis).

ISPRS TC I Mid Term Symposium

Technical Commission I Innovative Sensing - From Sensors to Methods and Applications "

The Symposium venue Karlsruhe in GERMANY has an excellent train connection to Frankfurt International Airport, so that international participants will have flexible and easy travelling options from all over the world.

The Technical Commission I Sensor Systems  intend to organize the Symposium's technical sessions in single-track fashion to support maximum information, interaction and communication. For allowing the presentation and publication of “cutting edge” technical papers as well as early concepts or latest, highly application-relevant results, we plan two submission possibilities: full papers to be assessed by peer-reviewing for ISPRS Annals and reviewing based on abstracts for ISPRS Archives.

Attached to the ISPRS TC I Midterm Symposium Innovative Sensing - From Sensors to Methods and Applications (10-12 October 2018), several one- or half-day workshops and tutorials (9 October 2018) with special focus on young scientists and practitioners from industry and (non-)governmental agencies will be organized. This shall include, for instance, tutorials and workshops for UAS- and spaceborne data acquisition strategies, modern calibration methods, sensor-oriented SAR and hyperspectral data processing, multi-sensor fusion concepts etc.

The interaction between science and industry will be further supported by an exhibition and possibilities for demos and master classes of internationally leading companies in sensing and processing of geospatial information.
