Our members may be wondering where and when the 16th Australasian Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Conference is taking place...we have all the answers here...
The 16th Australian Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry Conference will be held in Melbourne from 27-28August 2012, in conjunction with the 22nd Congress of the International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing that will be held from 25 August to 1 September 2012. The ARSPC would normally be held in 2012, so it has been agreed that it would be best to be held during the ISPRS Congress. The ISPRS Congress is one of the largest international remote sensing and photogrammetry conferences and is held every 4 years. The SSSI is a member of ISPRS through the Remote Sensing and Photogrammetry (RS&P) Commission and the local organising committee is made up of a dedicated group of our members. Registration at the ARSPC will enable attendance at all ISPRS sessions and vice versa, so there will be no additional cost in attending the ARSPC sessions. The ARSPC sessions will include two plenaries, four technical oral sessions and (electronic) poster sessions duringthe 3 days. These sessions will be all in parallel with the oral and poster sessions of the ISPRS Congress.
The RSP Commission committee along with the ISPRS Congress committee are busy organising the 16 ARSPC. To date, over 140 papers have been submitted from Australians to the ISPRS Congress, with many submitted for the dedicated 16 ARSPC sessions. Abstract submission has closed.
Full details of the ISPRS Congress and registration can be found on the Congress web site.
Attending the 16 ARSPC provides our members and wider spatial community with a unique opportunity to participate in a large international conference for the cost of one registration. We encourage our members to register early with early bird registration closing on 9 April 2012. You can register online here . We will also be offering a couple of student scholarships to attend, so students are encouraged to submit abstracts. Further information on these scholarships will be available in coming months. We hope to see a large Australian contingent attending this event.
