IEEE GRSS and ISPRS sign MoU to enhance cooperation of the two societies

ISPRS is proud to announce that on October 10, 2018, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between IEEE GRSS President Adriano Camps and ISPRS President Christian Heipke. IEEE GRSS, the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society, is an organization which deals with the theory, concepts, and techniques of science and engineering as they apply to the remote sensing of the earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, as well as the processing, interpretation and dissemination of this information, and thus a sister society of ISPRS. For a number of years, both societies have been actively promoting remote sensing in the UN-GGIM Geospatial Societies, and since 2015 they have also commonly organised a range of very successful workshops and summer schools in South America.

The Memorandum of Understanding calls for closer collaboration between the two societies by exchanging information and carrying out common activities whenever appropriate. An example, ISPRS and IEEE GRSS will jointly organise LAGIRS, the Latin American GRSS and ISPRS Remote Sensing Conference. LAGIRS is a biennial conference, the 2020 edition will be held in Santiago de Chile in March 2020. Further common activities are being discussed to better serve the scientific and technical remote sensing community around the globe.
