ISPRS GSW’2023 Report

by Prof. Naser El-Sheimy, PEng, CRC, FCAE, FION
ISPRS GSW’2023 Conference Director

GSW 2023

On behalf of the Arab Academy for Science, Technology, and Maritime Transport (AASTMT), it was a great honour to host the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Geospatial week 2023 (GSW’2023) at the Semiramis Cairo Hotel, on the magnificent river Nile – under the theme “Remote Sensing For Better Future”. As the first ISPRS Geospatial Week (GSW) to be held in Africa and the Middle East, the conference was chaired by Prof. Naser EL-Sheimy, and Prof. Ismail Abdelgafhar as the Honorary Chair and host of the conference, under the Auspices of H.E. Professor Mostafa Madbouly, Prime Minister of the Arab Republic of Egypt.

It took 18 months of hard work from many committees including an international scientific committee of over 80 scientists from all over the world, and close to 40 local organizing committee members from AAST, chaired by Prof. Alaa Abdel Barry.

The conference program included:

GSW 2023


  • 4 tutorials on UAV, sensor fusion, geospatial in public health, and deep learning in remote sensing given by the best specialists in the field. About 200 attendees (+50 students offered free registration) joined these 4 tutorials
  • 15 exciting keynote and plenary presentations from leaders in the geospatial technologies
  • 25 major industries in the fields of remote sensing, mapping, navigation, geospatial technologies, and GNSS
  • 3 space agencies from Taiwan, UAE, and Egypt
  • 2 major mapping agencies from Egypt and Saudi Arabia
  • 29 workshops divided into 100 sessions which included over 650 presentations and posters. The 29 workshops included state of the art and future trends in geospatial technologies and their applications in many industries and economic sectors

This rich program enabled the participants to remain at the state-of-the-art on the current trends in Geospatial science, technology & business, and also give them opportunity to meet and network with a very large number of experts, and to cross-fertilize with colleagues coming from neighboring fields! The conference also provided a platform for international scholars, graduate students, future scientists, and industrial sectors to learn and exchange knowledge and experience in the application of up-to-date geospatial technologies for sustainable development.

The GSW’2023 Conference was not only about science, but also about Egypt - a vibrant, fascinating and welcoming country. Cairo is home to the best Pharaonic, Coptic and Islamic sights in Egypt. Most of the attendees visited Cairo’s architectural and cultural treasures which is the dream of every traveler. The mystifying Pyramids, the vast sand dunes of the deserts, the oasis, the Nile, it's dazzling capital Cairo, countless temples and tombs along the river bank makes it amazingly beautiful and a land to be loved by all. The conference attendees enjoyed two social dinners: a dinner and show on the Nile Crystal Cruising Restaurant, and dinner and show at the Citadel of Cairo.

It was great to have the ISPRS Geospatial Week organized in Egypt where, most probably, the first Geospatial mapping systems were developed 1000s of years ago! We are happy that the attendees enjoyed this conference and could bask in Egypt’s warmth and thousands of years of civilization.

President’s Message

Dear colleagues and friends,

It is my pleasure to share with you my experience from the second largest ISPRS event - the Geospatial Week (GSW).

Geospatial Week 2023 in Cairo was the first large ISPRS event on the African continent: no symposia, no GSWs, and no congresses have been organised on this continent before. The programme included 650 presentations from more than 50 countries. Prof. Naser El-Sheimy from Canada, the GSW 2023 Director, together with the Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport, I am sure, have found that their efforts were rewarding and very fruitful; all participants very much appreciated the event. Two gala dinners will stay in our memories for a long time. Both were combined with a social programme, the second with the active participation of everybody. Egypt, with its amazing history, was also an interesting place for private travel before, during and after the conference. My thanks go to all who were involved in the preparation.

During the conference, we heard about the 2024 and 2025 ISPRS events.

2024 will bring five Mid-Term Symposia on four continents:

You can find information about all these events, and also other, smaller events, in the ISPRS Calendar.

Technical Commission Presidents, Tang Xinming, Alper Yilmaz, Laurent Polidori, Sisi Zlatanova, and Gay Jane Perez sincerely invite all of you and your colleagues to come and share your knowledge, learn something new, find new friends and enjoy yourselves at their symposia in 2024.

2025 is the year of the next GSW. The GSW 2025 will be organised in Dubai, U.A.E., by Muhammed Bin Rashid Space Center (MBRSC) under the title of Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing for a Better Tomorrow… on 16-21 February 2025. I hope it will be another very successful ISPRS event. Saeed Al Mansoori, GSW 2025 director, and his team are already busy with the preparation.

Come and support these exciting ISPRS events in good health and humour!

The ISPRS Foundation The ISPRS Foundation

The ISPRS Foundation

The ISPRS Foundation (TIF) is a non-profit entity established in 2003 and managed by a Board of Trustees. It responds to ISPRS grant needs that are identified by the ISPRS Council. Grant recipients are active participants in ISPRS and ISPRS-sponsored events, presenting posters and oral presentations, publishing in the ISPRS Archives and Annals, and joining both technical discussions and cultural exchanges. While their experiences may sometimes lead to academic and professional opportunities, they always lead to new friendships and exposure to the latest research and advancements in geospatial sciences. More details can be found in our new brochure published recently in the TIF webpage.

The ISPRS Foundation depends on individual donations and contributions from ISPRS. Donations may be mailed directly to the TIF Finance Officer, Jeff Yates (General Manager, DAT/EM Systems International, a division of NV5 Geospatial, 2014 Merrill Field Drive, Anchorage, Alaska 99501, USA) e-mail:
