Automated extraction of topographic objects from remotely sensed data is an important topic of research in Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing, GIS, and Computer Vision. This joint conference of ISPRS working groups I/2, III/4, III/5, and IV/3, held at Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM), discuss recent developments, the potential of various data sources, and future trends both with respect to sensors and processing techniques in automatic object extraction.
The focus of the conference lies on methodological research. Prospective authors are invited to submit a full paper of maximum 6 pages. These papers will undergo a rigorous double blind review process. Accepted papers will be published as printed proceedings in the IAPRS series as well as on CD labeled as "Part A". The type of presentation (oral or interactive) will be decided by the program committee and will be dependent upon the subject of the paper and the way it fits to the overall program.
Authors who intend to present application oriented work that is in particular suitable for interactive presentation may submit an extended abstract. In case of acceptance by the program committee, these authors are invited to submit a full paper which will be published on CD with a separate label ("Part B").
