The scientific and technical work of the ISPRS is accomplished by 8 Technical Commissions. Each Commission is entrusted to an Ordinary Member organization for the four-year term between Congresses. Ordinary Members seeking responsibility for a Commission submit proposals for hosting the Commission and are elected by the General Assembly at the Congress. The direction of a Technical Commission is the responsibility of a President and Secretary, acting with the support of the hosting Ordinary Member, and with the guidance and approval of the Council. Technical Commissions organize Working Groups, and each Commission arranges a Symposium between Congresses, for which it is entirely responsible. The culmination of the Technical Commission's operation is the selection of papers to be presented at the Congress held at the conclusion of the four-year period.
