Professor Friedrich Ackermann † 4 December 2021
ISPRS mourns the loss of Honorary Member, Friedrich Ackermann, who passed away at the age of 92 in Stuttgart, Germany. As many in the ISPRS community know, Ackermann was the recipient of the Otto von Gruber Award (1964) and the Brock Gold Medal (1976). He was also President of ISPRS Commission III (1972-76) and Programme Director of the Congress in Hamburg (1980).

Changes in Technical Commission IV
Regretfully, Prof Dr Suzana Dragicevic is unable to continue in her role as a Vice President of TC IV until the ISPRS Congress in Nice, 2022.
It is our pleasure to announce that Dr George Sithole, of Cape Town, South Africa, will continue as Vice President of the commission and Dr Jack Barton, Sydney, Australia, will be the new Commission Secretary. We welcome the new Commission Officers and look forward to working with them.
On behalf of the ISPRS community, we thank Prof. Dragicevic for her long service to ISPRS who has served as Vice-President since 2012. We look forward to seeing her at the ISPRS Congress next year, and hope to continue collaborations in the future.

The ISPRS Foundation (TIF) Travel Grants for XXIV ISPRS Congress 6-11 June 2022
TIF travel grants will be offered to enable deserving young authors, and officially designated Delegates, especially from developing countries, to participate in the XXIV ISPRS Congress. Three sources of funds are available: TIF Funds derived from donations, funds available from the French IRD Research Institute for Development (Institut de Recherche pour le Développement), and those provided by the AGSI North Africa 2022 Award. Grants will be awarded according to the conditions of each of the awards, but it is unlikely that adequate funds will be available to fully fund requests from applicants. Therefore, it is recommended that applicants also seek top-up funds from elsewhere.
