First ISPRS Proceedings accepted for Web of Science
After what can only be described as a very long and arduous process, the first ISPRS Proceedings have now been approved for inclusion into the Thomson Reuters' Conference Citation Proceedings Index (CPCI), one of the indices of the Web of Science.
ISPRS initiated the evaluation procedure for The International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences with the help of its publisher, Copernicus GmbH, in January 2013. According to the rules of CPCI, all proceedings from the preceding four years, in this case those for the years 2010-13, were subject to the evaluation procedure. In the future, the proceedings from each event are then individually evaluated by Thomson Reuters prior to acceptance in the CPCI.

New possibilities for publishing ISPRS proceedings
In order to better serve the ISPRS community and to further increase the quality of the ISPRS proceedings, The International Archives of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences and the ISPRS Annals of the Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Spatial Information Sciences, Council has recently signed a new contract, covering the period of Jan. 2015 to Dec. 2018 with its proceedings publisher, Copernicus GmbH of Göttingen, Germany.
As of 1st January 2015, ISPRS event organisers have a new service package to assist in publishing proceedings. Using Copernicus’ “Service Package D”, organisers will be able to carry out all aspects of paper submission and review for both the Archives (review based on abstracts) and the Annals (peer review based on full-papers).

2D semantic labeling benchmark by ISPRS working group III/4: what is the state-of-the-art in urban scene classification?
The ISPRS working group III/4 is happy to announce the release of the 2D semantic labeling benchmark, which is an extension to the ongoing object detection and 3D building reconstruction challenge. The aim is to foster research in urban image classification using state-of-the-art airborne remote sensing images. We provide 33 true ortho image and DSM tiles of very high resolution and quality, and in addition deliver reference classification (labeling) for 16 of those tiles. Participants are encouraged to deliver their classification for the remaining 17 tiles.
The evaluation results will be published on our website. See the link http://www2.isprs.org/semantic-labeling.html for details.
The datasets can be downloaded after registration at http://www2.isprs.org/data-request-form.html
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.
