Update from Congress Director
The Melbourne Congress is shaping up to be an excellent event with many people already taking advantage of the early-bird discount for registration. The exhibition space is also filling quickly, but there are still booths available for those wishing to take advantage of the opportunity that the Congress offers.
The technical program for the Congress will consist of the traditional oral sessions and, as a first for ISPRS, short interactive sessions using electronic poster pods. The pods offer another opportunity to have an organisation's sponsorship recognised. In addition, the peer reviewed papers will be published in the inaugural ISPRS Annals.
The ISPRC Council, and the Local Organising Committee is looking forward to seeing you in Melbourne.
The Congress programme and exhibition offers the Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing Community a unique opportunity to discover the latest research and technical developments in the discipline. The Congress has attracted more than 1700 abstracts and a high quality Technical Programme of oral and short presentations is assured.

Passport & Visa
All international visitors require a valid passport and visa for entry into Australia (New Zealand visitors require a valid passport only). A facility for electronically issuing visas, the Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) system, is currently available through international travel agents and airlines in over 30 countries including the US, UK, parts of Western Europe, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan. This system also includes pre-clearance for entry which reduces the time needed to process passengers on arrival. Your local Australian Embassy or Consulate can advise of the availability. For non-ETA countries, visas are issued from Australian Embassies and Consulates around the world. In non-ETA countries, we recommend that you apply early for your visa.
