ISPRS Congress 2021 digital - Physical Congress now 2022

Dear all,

As you will see from the links (postponement note & postponement rationale ), Council has decided to run the 2021 edition of the XXIV Congress digitally only, and to organise a physical meeting in 2022. It was also decided to postpone the General Assembly and the hand-over of all officer positions until June 2022, and to shift the ISPRS meeting cycle by two years. This means that the next Symposia are now planned to take place in 2024, and the Congress following the one in 2022 will be organised in 2026. A rationale for these decision can also be found here.

We would like to thank you all for what you have done for ISPRS during the current term, and we hope to meet you in person in Nice in summer 2022.

Yours sincerely,

Christian Heipke, ISPRS President & Nicolas Paparoditis, ISPRS Congress Director
