September 8 - 10, 1999

Technische Universität München, Germany


We kindly invite you to our conference ``Automatic Extraction of GIS Objects from Digital Imagery'', to be held September 8 - 10, 1999 at Technische Universität München, Munich, Germany. This International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ISPRS) single track conference will include seven invited and 23 high-level oral presentations. The one-day workshop ``Semantic Modeling'' will precede the conference on September 7, 1999.

The conference addresses researchers and practitioners from universities, research institutes, industry, government organizations, and engineering companies. It consists of high quality, previously unpublished papers. Contributions present recent research and applications focusing on, but not restricted to the following topics:

All presented papers have undergone a rigorous review process. Reviewing was carried out in a ``double blind'' fashion by the Program Committee:

The proceedings of the conference are published in the International Archives of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing, Volume XXXII, Part 3-2W5.

The conference will be held at Technische Universität München, a 130 years old academic center of excellence. It is conveniently located near the city center.

Munich is a city of fascinating experiences. Historic buildings of every period, grand boulevards and squares, bear imposing witness to a culture centuries old. Art, in the museums and outside, lures millions of visitors to the city year after year. Unique are Munich`s beer gardens. Both, locals and guests are enjoying this special way of come together during the warm evenings in summer time.

Munich is surrounded by some most splendid landscape including the Bavarian Alps and a number of pleasant lakes. Also, famous sights, including the castles of King Ludwig II are within easy reach of the city.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the conference in September 1999
