GUIDELINES FOR PREPARATION OF REPORTS OF ISPRS SPONSORED/SUPPORTED CONFERENCES AND MEETINGS
Version June 2011
Council requires that Technical Commission Presidents and Working Group Chairs arrange for the preparation of formal reports on all Commission scientific meetings which are sponsored or supported by ISPRS. These reports will ensure adequate reporting on Commission activities to Council. In addition, they should be published in the ISPRS eBulletin. To ensure currency of the information, the reports should be provided within one month of the completion of the meeting.
The scope of the Report aims to keep Council, readers of the ISPRS eBulletin and ISPRS members up-to-date on scientific outcomes and trends in remote sensing, photogrammetry, GIS and related fields.
The content of Reports should include:
||General information on the meeting (sponsoring organization, date, site, background, scope and subjects; number of participants and the number of countries
represented; exhibition; and other technical and social events).
||Scientific results related to photogrammetry, remote sensing and GIS. Because the quality of papers at meetings is variable, reports should present an
assessment of substantial outcomes. Merely repeating the programme of the meeting without evaluation is of no help to readers. Problem areas that need further
research efforts should be listed. An outlook on the future should be included.
||Information on, and contact address for acquiring the proceedings, if they are to be published.
||Forthcoming meetings (of the sponsoring/ supporting organizations) which impact on photogrammetry and remote sensing. Contact address with phone, fax number and E-mail addresses.
||On average, any report should not exceed 600 words in the English language.
||One or two photos from the conference or meeting in 300 dpi should be also be included in the written report.
Manuscripts must be prepared in electronic form in MSWord and should be sent by E-mail, (a passport size photograph of the author of the report should also be included in electronic form for inclusion with the report) to
Prof. Christian Heipke
Editor ISPRS eBulletin,

These reports which are specifically intended for scientific and technical meetings and not for business meetings, will improve communication of the Society's
activities to its members, and also enable the Council to report more formally to associated bodies. It is therefore requested that these reports are supplied on
time and according to these specifications.
