Topics, Tracks and Workshops

Contributions addressing (but not limited to) the topics listed below are welcome.  

  • 3D data acquisition and processing
  • 3D city modelling and related standards
  • Visualisation and dissemination of 3D data, including augmented and virtual reality
  • 3D data management - data quality, metadata, provenance and trust
  • Usability and Human Computer interaction in 3D GIS
  • 3D generalisation
  • 3D GIS, spatial analysis and other applications (such as cadastral systems, utilities, asset management, infrastructure, navigation, urban planning, geology, disaster and risk management, archaeology, marine systems, simulations, autonomous vehicles, facilities management, energy modelling)
  • 3D and Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning
  • 3D mapping aided (3DMA) GNSS
  • Digital Twins and Smart Cities
  • 4D/5D City Modelling

As part of the conference we will also be hosting a number of pre-conference workshops and dedicated conference tracks, including (more to be announced later):

1. A Users and Use Cases track, which will include papers from practitioners in fields such as  Planning, Environment, Construction, Asset Management, Energy Management and others.  We are interested in:

  • Making the case for 3D (from the workflow and also from the financial perspective)
  • Initiatives and work in progress
  • Learning about the problems with 3D from your perspective
  • Learning more about how 3D can be integrated into your world

2. A pre-conference workshop on BIM/GIS Integration.

Submission and Publication

We invite authors to submit papers describing original scientific research and applications. 

Full papers, to be published in the ISPRS Annals. The submitted papers should report new or improved techniques, algorithms, benchmarks, technology developments, frameworks, and best practices, which are not published elsewhere. Papers will be evaluated on their originality, novelty, and impact and will be subjected to a double-blind review. 

Long abstracts (1000-1500 words).    The submitted (extended) abstracts can be new or improved techniques, algorithms, benchmarks, technology developments, frameworks, and best practices, which are not published elsewhere, but they can also relate to professional/demo papers demonstrating innovative systems and practical approaches, or research in progress. Long abstracts will be subjected to a double-blind review. The abstracts on their own will not be published. If your abstract is accepted, it must then be extended into a full length paper for publication in the ISPRS Archives.

Stand-alone presentations (500-1000 words) can be accepted based on a submitted abstract that explains the content of the presentation.  These should focus on demonstrations and practical approaches not suitable for publication in journal format, and can also be used to describe the practitioner perspective on 3D if practitioners do not wish to write a full journal article.  These abstracts will not be published by ISPRS, but will be available via the conference website.
