The online submission system is now open. The deadline for submission of abstracts of papers for presentation at the ISPRS 2012 Congress is Monday, 24 October 2011.
An abstract must be submitted for all papers, including plenary and invited papers, papers by young authors, oral and poster presentations, and full papers that will be submitted to the double blind, peer review process. All papers accepted for presentation will have the associated abstract published, exactly as submitted, in the Book of Abstracts distributed at the ISPRS 2012 Congress.
For the double blind, peer review process (Technical Commissions II, III, IV and VII only), you must ensure that the full paper is submitted no later than 16 January 2012. Papers submitted after this date will not be peer reviewed and will not be published in the International Annals of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. Late papers may be accepted to be published in the non-peer reviewed International Archives of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing. For the review by abstract only, you must ensure that the full paper is submitted no later than 16 April 2012. Papers submitted after this date will not be included in the International Archives of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing or the Proceedings of 16ARSPC.
The proceedings of ISPRS 2012 will be submitted to the Web of Science Conference Proceedings Citation Index. Preliminary discussions with Web of Science editorial staff has indicated that the ISPRS Annals and Archives should be suitable for indexing, however the proceedings volumes will be assessed on submission.
Authors should note that every paper submitted must have one unique registration for the paper to be included in the published proceedings. A participant may be the co-author of multiple papers, however each author may present only one paper at the Congress, except for those authors of plenary papers and papers accepted for Technical Commission VI. Payment of the registration fee by the Presenting Author must be made prior to the deadline of 30 April 2012.
