Invitation to participate in the ISPRS 2020 Congress
June 28th – July 4th,2020 in Nice, France
by Nicolas Paparoditis
Congress Director


We are inviting you to attend the XXIVth ISPRS Congress (, which will take place in 2020 in the gorgeous city of Nice, France, from June 28 to July 4.

Nice, the cosmopolitan and multicultural capital of the French Riviera is one of the best places in the world to host an unforgettable ISPRS Congress. Nice is an outstanding location between sea and mountains, close to the Italian border, where culture and heritage meet with the cutting edge technology of Sophia Antipolis, the French Silicon Valley. The Acropolis congress centre is in the heart of the city, 4 minutes walk from the old town of Nice, 10 minutes walk from the beaches, and 15 minutes by tramway from the airport.

We will build a very rich scientific program that will enable you to remain at the state-of-the-art of our fields, to meet and exchange with a large number scientists, and also to cross-fertilize with scientists coming from related fields. Indeed, this Congress will gather leading specialists, experts and researchers in the fields of photogrammetry, remote sensing, and spatial information sciences coming from universities, research foundations, mapping and spatial agencies, public organisations and private companies. A space agency forum and a cadastral agency forum will also address policy issues in GeoInformation. A thrilling summer school will also be organized by the ISPRS student consortium with the help of the French engineering schools and universities involved in the congress organization.

We will also have to pleasure to introduce new technologies and contents that will allow the attendees to enhance their ISPRS experience, i.e. to prepare the event forehand, (I) to better organise their agenda and meetings during the week, and (ii) to have access to the augmented archives of contents after the congress (sound tracks of all sessions, videos of plenary sessions, selected top-level oral presentations, etc.).

The ISPRS 2020 congress will hold a strong industrial exhibition with private and public companies. That will give you the unique opportunity to get updated in the advances of new geospatial technologies and solutions (satellite systems, lidar, hyperspectral, mobile mapping, UAVs, geo-BigData processing, geo-data warehouses, geo-visualisation, geo-services, VGI-technologies, Spatial Data Infrastructures, etc.) and to get equipped with the latest technologies.

The ISPRS 2020 Congress will be hosted by SFPT (the French society of photogrammetry and remote sensing), and will be organized with the support of the French major public institutions dealing with photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences: IGN (the French National Institute for Geographic and Forest Information), CNES (the French national space agency), IRSTEA (the French national research institute of science and technology for environment and agriculture), INRIA (the French National institute for computer science and applied mathematics), IRD (the French institute of research for development), CNRS/INSU (the institute of earth and universe sciences of the French national council for research), and several other partners currently in discussion.

The Jack Dangermond Award for the most outstanding paper in the ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information

ISPRS is proud to announce a new ISPRS award. Individual awards are presented during ISPRS Congresses to outstanding ISPRS scientists for their exceptional achievements. Many of these awards are donated by ISPRS Members.

One of the awards - The U.V. Helava Award (2000) - is sponsored by Elsevier Science, publisher of the ISPRS International Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, and Leica Geosystems AG. The award consists of a grand prize of SFr. 10,000 and a silver plaque, presented to the author(s) of the most outstanding paper published exclusively in the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing during the four years preceding the Congress, and three runner-up prizes.

As ISPRS would also like to award best papers in the ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information (IJGI), an agreement has been made with Esri, the strongest commercial organisation in GIS, and MDPI, publisher of IJGI, to create a new award – The Jack Dangermond Award. The idea, proposed by the ISPRS past president, Orhan Altan, was established in the autumn of 2016. The following photograph documents the meeting of Jack Dangermond and Lena Halounová, in Prague, on 3 November, 2016 where Jack agreed to the new award. He felt honored that ISPRS had asked him to give his name to the award and decided to donate a generous endowment for future awardees. MDPI agreed to share the prize. The award consists of a grand prize of USD 10,000 and will be given to the most outstanding paper published exclusively in the ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information during the four years preceding each Congress.

SELPER and ISPRS sign MoU as part of ISPRS Strategy to enhance Cooperation with South America

ISPRS is proud to announce that during the recent SELPER International Symposium, held in Puerto Iguazú, Argentina, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between SELPER and ISPRS. SELPER, the Sociedad Latinoamericana en Percepción Remota y Sistemas de Información Espacial, is a non-governmental organization that aims at supporting and promoting activities related to remote sensing and spatial information science in the Latin American region. SELPER encourages the professional advancement of its members through education, training and capacity building, with the ultimate objective of developing a positive contribution for the benefit of the Latin American community and its institutions. In this context, SELPER is instrumental in stimulating national and international cooperation among specialists and entities that work on research, development, applications and operations in the fields of remote sensing and spatial information science, fostering a close technical and scientific cooperation between relevant public and private sectors. SELPER is a regional member of ISPRS and organises an international scientific symposium every two years.

The most recent symposium was attended by some 300 participants, mainly from South American universities and space agencies. During the meeting, the former SELPER International president, Luz Angela Rocha Salamanca (Universidad Distrital "Francisco José De Caldas", Bogotá Colombia) handed over the office to Miriam Antes (Universidad Nacional de Luján, Argentina), who was also the organiser of the symposium in Puerto Iguazú Misiones, Argentina.

The memorandum of understanding calls for closer collaboration between the two organisations by exchanging information and carrying out common activities whenever appropriate. An example of such activities was a tutorial on Synthetic Aperture Radar, partly supported by ISPRS. The special issue in the ISPRS Journal on “Coping with Environmental Challenges in Latin America with Remote Sensing”,, is another such example.

For ISPRS, this Memorandum of Understanding is part of a strategy to achieve a more active cooperation with photogrammetry and remote sensing experts in Latin America. ISPRS also cooperates with other organisations in the South American continent and, for example, supports the Latin America Remote Sensing Week (LARS) in Chile and the Brazilian Symposium on Remote Sensing. ISPRS is grateful to SELPER for having initiated the Memorandum of Understanding and looks forward to filling it with many ideas and activities.

Christian Heipke, ISPRS President

Digitisation of Publications

Council is very pleased to announce the completion of the first step towards the digitisation of older archive publications. For decades, the physical repository of the archive was hosted by ITC, University of Twente, in the Netherlands. ISPRS gratefully acknowledges this support.
In 2014, the repository was moved to the Technical Information Library (TIB) at Leibniz Universität Hannover, where the volumes have been digitised and integrated into the ISPRS web interface.

Two examples demonstrating the range of volumes digitised are the earliest published volume, Quatrième Congrès International de Photogrammétrie, the Paris Congress from 1934:
and the latest, the CIPA 2003 XVIII International Symposium in Antalya, Turkey:

Further volumes are to be integrated in the future. Should anyone have printed volumes, which are not yet available on the ISPRS web site (link) and feel they can make them available to the society, please contact Headquarters at

TIB performs this task as a service to the Society and the spatial science community. ISPRS is greatly indebted to TIB for this generous service.

Pre-conference workshop of the
20th AGILE International Conference on Geographic Information Science 2017
Bridging space, time, and semantics in GIScience

Wageningen, The Netherlands
May 9, 2017


The increased availability of geographic data (often in massive volumes) together with the advances in spatiotemporal data management, integration, analysis, and visualization present an emerging need and opportunity: how to transform these massive volumes of geographic data into meaningful information about places, events, activities, and interrelations. The integration of space, time, and semantics provides the basis to infuse data with meaning and deepen our knowledge of complex natural and social systems and intricate interactions in space and time. This key research issue is also relevant to other cutting edge research themes such as Volunteered Geographic Information, Geospatial Semantic Web, semantic sensor networks, big data, linked data, etc. Context and granularity (spatial, temporal, and semantic) constitute additional dimensions of geographic data that are not fully explored and may provide valuable insights into this issue.

Topics of interest:
The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

  • Geospatial semantics
  • Ontologies of space, time, processes, and events
  • Cognitive aspects of spatiotemporal concepts
  • Semantic information extraction
  • Sophisticated spatiotemporal models
  • Spatial, temporal, and semantic representation of dynamic processes, events, and activities
  • Semantics of Geospatial Information from historical maps
  • Visualization of space, time, and semantics
  • Multidimensional spatial data models for VGI
  • Real-time spatiotemporal data integration, modelling, analysis, and visualization (real-time space-time integration)
  • State-of-the-art applications in relevant areas such as historical GIS, climate change, transportation, mobility, epidemics, disaster response, etc.

Participants are invited to submit a short paper (2000 to 3000 words) in the AGILE 2017 Conference short paper format. Short paper submissions will be reviewed and selected for presentation during the workshop.
Depending on the submissions, publication of selected papers in a special issue of a journal will be considered. Further details will be provided at the workshop.
Please make your submission anonymous and submit it as a PDF document via EasyChair.

The Workshop is co-organised by AGILE and ISPRS Working Groups IV/1 Multi-dimensional modelling and IV/2: Ontologies, Semantics, and Knowledge Representation for Geospatial Information.

Important dates:
28 February, 2017: Short paper submission
20 March, 2017: Notification of acceptance
9 May, 2017: AGILE Workshop “Bridging space, time, and semantics in GIScience”
