The 2020 edition of the XXIV ISPRS Congress
A very successful preliminary digital event in preparation for the Congress in Nice in July 2021


The ISPRS XXIV Congress was initially planned from 14-20 June 2020. Due to the COVID-19 situation and its impact on international travelling, the ISPRS Council decided to postpone the Congress to 4-10 July 2021. Nevertheless, the paper submission and reviewing process was nearly completed when the decision was taken. As it seemed scientifically impossible for an innovative scientific community to present and publish papers submitted in February 2020 in a Congress taking place 18 months later, ISPRS decided to create two editions of the XXIV Congress:

  • a digital 2020 edition with a 3-day virtual event, which began on the 31 August 2020, enabling authors to present their work to a large audience; this edition also includes a published version of those works in the ISPRS proceedings, and
  • a 2021 edition taking place in July 2021 in the Nice Congress with the presentations of papers, for which a new submission and reviewing process will start in December 2020 with a deadline in early 2021.

Sherman Shou-Chou Wu
1928 - 2020

Sherman Shou-Chou Wu, born on April 9, 1928, died at 92 years of age on August 22, 2020 with family by his side.

Astrogeologists know him as Dr. Mars for the integral role he played in creating the first topographical map of Mars and other interstellar bodies. The asteroid (2075), discovered on October 9, 1980, is named after him for his influential contributions. Even in his "retirement," his expertise was highly regarded. He moved to Las Vegas from Flagstaff to work as a consultant with the U.S. Department of Energy.

Call for Proposals

ISPRS Scientific Initiatives 2021

In accordance with the statutory mission and activities of ISPRS, the Society shall provide funds to support scientific and other initiatives, which will further improve its international status in the field of the photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences, and will therefore benefit all ISPRS members. For 2021, the ISPRS Council is making up to SFr. 70,000 available to support new scientific initiatives. The maximum funding assigned to any one scientific project shall be SFr. 10,000 per annum. Projects should commence on January 1, 2021 and typically last up to 12 months. In exceptional cases, applications for projects lasting up to 24 months will be considered. Projects of greater than one-year duration will be subject to annual review before subsequent funding will be released.

Call for Participation

UAVid Competition

Semantic segmentation has been one of the leading research interests in photogrammetry and computer vision in recent years. The fast development of semantic segmentation attributes enormously to the large scale datasets, especially for the deep learning related methods. We introduce our UAVid dataset, a new high-resolution UAV semantic segmentation dataset,
