Towards the Beijing Congress

ISPRS is now approaching to a very busy period of the last 10months before the Beijing Congress. We held completed seven Technical Commission Symposia, as well as a number of ISPRS workshops and meetings of other organisations at which ISPRS has sponsored and being represented.

Council has met on different occasions and besides dealing with ongoing issues such as the Congress, finance and ISPRS publications, has discussed to set up a new strategic plan, additional benefits for members, restructuring the Council, and our strategy for capacity building in Africa.

In 2007 we have had number of important workshops including the 5th International Symposium on Mobile Mapping Technology in Padua-Italy, the workshop on High Resolution Earth Imaging for Geospatial Information, the Conference on 'Optical 3D Measurement Techniques' and the workshop on Photogrammetric Image Analysis will be held in Munich coming September. We were heavily involved in the International Symposium of Remote Sensing of Environment. CIPA will be holding its biennial conference in October. We have supported and organised special ISPRS sessionsat the Conference on "The Environment: Survival and Sustainability" February 2007, in Northern Cyprus, at the GeoSiberia Conference in Novosibirsk, Russia in April 07 and Map Middle East Conference in Dubai April 07. The Annual Asian Conference of Remote Sensing series is always one of the major events, which ISPRS give a high importance and value. Last year (2006) it was organized in Mongolia and several ISPRS related people attended this Conference. This year it will be held in Kuala Lumpur. These are important events which will be paving the way to the XXIst Congress in Beijing in 2008.

We look forward to meet with all of you in Beijing and for further in formation about the Congress please refer to the website of the Congress.
