The ISPRS Student Consortium (ISPRS SC) is the official representation of the students and the youth to ISPRS. One of its aims is to provide a platform for the exchange of information and to organize student-specific events and other activities that integrate students and the youth more effectively into ISPRS activities.
ISPRS SC organizes a forum where students and young researchers attending the Geospatial Week 2023 can give a presentation about their research. We particularly encourage local and regional students to participate and provide the attendees with an overview of the geospatial and/or remote sensing research undertaken in Egypt and other African Regions, although presentations throughout the globe are welcomed.
The objective of this forum is to provide a platform for communication, networking and exchange of research ideas among students and young professionals while promoting ISPRS SC and its activities. Moreover, as one of the ISPRS SC targets of 2023 is to expand our sphere of influence in Africa through Student Chapters and collaborations, this event will be an opportunity for us to connect with people and organizations that might become our next African partners.
Importantly, the best paper nominated from this forum will be eligible to compete for the ISPRS Student Consortium Excellence Award.
Themes of the event:
We welcome papers from students and young researchers submitting their research in all the areas using RS, GIS and Photogrammetry technologies in addition to the following themes:
⦁ GIS and Remote Sensing (RS) For a Sustainable Future.
⦁ Applications of Machine Learning in Geospatial Technologies.
⦁ Use of Open Source Tools/Technologies in GIS and Remote Sensing.
⦁ Crowdsourcing and Citizen Science in Geospatial Sector.
⦁ GIS Education and Outreach Activities.
Featuring Forum Report in ISPRS SC Newsletter:
We accept both the abstracts and full papers that have been submitted by following ISPRS guidelines. After the forum, authors of the selected papers will be invited to submit an article detailing their research to the “Spectrum” (ISPRS SC Newsletter), in its Spotlight section. We will also feature the summary of this event in the Spectrum.
