Weight loss could result from a number of reasons, water loss, muscle degradation, and you need to be certain that you're gaining muscles and losing body fats. During the challenge you're going to be educated in how to eat and exercise to make the most of your weight loss and you're going to be inspired to adhere to your plan. Weight loss is one thing which can greatly enhance the way that people feel about themselves which improves performance. When others notice your successful weight reduction, it provides you an excellent sense of achievement.

Many heeded the challenge to create fantastic changes in their way of life and be in a position to live much healthier and fitter body throughout the course of their life. Before you set out your weight-loss challenge, you must understand three important keys. Our Weight Loss Challenge makes it possible to get fit, shed weight and adopt wholesome eating and exercise habits. It delivers the perfect combination of the two in a positive, energetic environment that has been proven to get you the results you want. The greatest weight-loss challenge operates by motivating people to shed weight through competition.

In case the Challenge included group fitness programs make sure that they are accessible for all exercise levels. The next thing which you are able to do is to join a weight reduction challenge. A successful weight reduction challenge is one which is intended to support your aims and that empowers you to create adjustments to your way of life and habits.

Submit a paper/abstract


Submit your 2020 paper CLOSED (Deadline 6 February 2020)

The abstract submission for the 2021 edition will open on 14 December 2020

Call for Thematic Sessions

Update information coming soon.
We solicit proposals for Thematic Sessions. The floor is open to all.

Submissions should focus on topics which are not explicitly or insufficiently addressed by the individual ISPRS Working Groups of the five Technical Commis- sions. They should highlight topics in photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial information sciences that have newly appeared and/or have reached a significant importance since the XXIII ISPRS Congress in Prague (2016). The goal of a thema- tic session is to attract specialists with modern methods, themes and applications to present their results to a large ISPRS audience.

Each application must include a title, keywords, a short abstract of the topic (1/2 page) stressing its importance and its relation to the ISPRS missions, the name and CV of the applicants, as well as a tentative list of full papers/authors.

The deadline is 1 September 2020. Proposals should be sent to in a single PDF file

An acceptance/rejection decision for thematic sessions will be decided by the International Programme Committee of the Congress by 15 November 2020. Then, all invited papers will go through the regular review process.

Call for Tutorials

Update information coming soon.
We solicit proposals for Tutorials. The floor is open to all.

Short courses and tutorials will be held on Sunday 4 July 2021, the day before the main programme. Tutorials should give a comprehensive overview or a basic understanding of a specific topic related to photogrammetry, remote sensing, and spatial information sciences. A good tutorial should be educational rather than just a compendium of existing methods. The topic should be sufficiently relevant and important to attract significant interest from the ISPRS community : graduate students, researchers, and practitioners from both academia and industry.

We invite proposals for both half-day and full-day courses. Each submission must include a full course description, the name and CV of the proponents, the expected target audience and number, as well as a description of the resources that will be distributed.

The deadline is 1 September 2020. Proposals should be sent to in PDF format (a single document). Decisions will be taken by the International Science Committee of the Congress by 15 November 2020.

Please email the tutorial chair Jan Dirk Wegner (ETH Zurich; Switzerland) in case you have questions:
