Seeking a Co-Editor-in-Chief for the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing

The flagship journal of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS), the ISPRS Journal of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (P&RS) seeks a second Editor-in-Chief, responsible for optical remote sensing. Published by Elsevier B.V., the journal is one of the top ranked in remote sensing (impact factor 3.313 and 5-year impact factor 4.026). Due to splendid development over the past few years, a second Editor-in Chief is needed to work along with Editor-in-Chief Derek Lichti, University of Calgary, to further the journal's aim to be a channel of communication for scientists and professionals in all countries working in the many disciplines of photogrammetry, remote sensing, computer vision and other related fields. The scope of the journal is extensive and covers sensors, theory and algorithms, systems, experiments, developments and applications. A list of topic areas can be found at:

Council explores revision of ISPRS Commission structure
members and ISPRS community at large are asked for comments

A number of developments and assessments have led to this proposal for the restructuring of the ISPRS commissions (to be found here ).

We are most interested in your opinion about this important development and cordially invite you to take part in this discussion. You may do so by sharing your comments on the blog, or by sending an e-mail to the Secretary General. The topic will also be discussed during the eight midterm symposia being held during 2014.


Individual membership category approved by Ordinary Members

With an overwhelming majority the ISPRS Ordinary Members have voted for the introduction of Individual Membership. Nevertheless, ISPRS will remain a society of societies; the new membership category is primarily being introduced to give individuals in areas without active Ordinary Members the possibility to link to the ISPRS network.
Individual membership in ISPRS is free of charge and is governed by Bylaw VI (7) and the new ISPRS Policy on Individual Membership. Anybody interested in ISPRS Individual Membership can submit an application here or contact his/her national ISPRS Ordinary Member.
