International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing is 105-year-old lady in 2015. The Society organizes congress once in four years. The Congresses offer not only a platform for presentation of the latest results of photogrammetry, remote sensing and spatial sciences, but also a platform for scientific and non-scientific meetings and discussions.

The scientific programme takes form of plenary sessions and parallel sessions. Parallel sessions are dedicated to presentation of reviewed papers. The papers are linked to sessions according to their topics to individual Working Groups.

Important part of participants form young scientists. They are welcome to attend not only the Congress, but I would like to encourage them to join Student Consortium and participate in the Youth Forum during the Congress. They are invited to participate in Summer school, which will be held in Telč from 7- 11 July 2016.

ISPRS Annals (proceedings with double blind reviewed papers) are expecting to be registered before the Congress.

The registration for the Congress will be opened on 12 July 2015.

A Congress App for all platforms will be launched in June 2015. The App will significantly enhance contacts between participants, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and organizers.
