III. Background and Context

Established in 1910, the International Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing(ISPRS) is devoted to the research, education and development of photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences. The ISPRS currently has 5 technical commissions and the technical commission I (TC I) is on sensor systems. The TC I has 8 working groups and 3 inter-commission working groups.

The Mid-term Symposium of ISPRS TC I will be held in Changsha, Hunan Province from May 13 to 17, 2024, with the topic of Intelligent Sensing and Remote Sensing Application, focusing on the fields of the sensor systems. Plenary session, technical sessions, technology exhibition and technical visits will be scheduled. During the symposium, an international high resolution remote sensing image interpretation contest(the Gaofen Challenge) and a one-day tutorial will be also arranged. Over 700 experts are expected to participate in the symposium to share the latest researches, advanced technologies, application experience, to discuss the future development and to seek all kinds of international cooperation opportunities.
