ISPRS 2020 Congress: Nice is Nice! - 15/05/2019

The XXIV ISPRS Congress will take place in 2020 in the French city of Nice from 14-20 June. Nice is the capital of the French Riviera and is an outstanding location on the Mediterranean Sea, bordered by the Alps, Italy and the countryside of Provence. The venue of the congress, the Acropolis Convention Centre, is in the heart of the historical city, just 5 minutes’ walk from the 'Vieux Nice' (the old town) and 10 minutes’ walk from the beach. The Acropolis is also less than a 20-minute tram ride from the airport, so it is extremely convenient!

Held every four years, ISPRS congresses are major scientific and technical events in the geospatial community. The ISPRS 2020 Congress in Nice will host over 3,000 participants from 100 countries and will gather leading specialists in the fields of photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences, coming from universities, mapping and cadastre agencies, space agencies, public organizations and private companies. The ISPRS Congress is the opportunity for participants to learn the state of the art on the current trends in science and technology and also to network with a very large number of experts from within the community and from neighbouring fields.

More than 2,000 papers will be submitted for the 2020 Congress, many of which will be presented in the various tracks. Six of those tracks will be science-oriented, devoted to the presentations of new high-quality contributions in the scope of the five ISPRS Technical Commissions (sensor systems, photogrammetry, remote sensing, spatial information science, and education and outreach).

In addition to these, a fora track will discuss hot topics for the geospatial community (global mapping and resource monitoring for Sustainable Development Goals, smart cities, digital globes, data cubes and geoplatforms, autonomous navigation and open science) in order to study the role that the community could play in them.

A technology track will be dedicated to specific presentations of new technologies, products and services developed by the industry but also by academia (science-oriented platforms, products and services). It will be associated with a large industrial exhibition that will give attendees the unique opportunity to get updated on the advances of new geospatial technologies and solutions, and their applications.
