- The preliminary program for the Sept. 1 and 2 workshop in Paris, France has been released.
- On the 3rd and 4th there will be a follow on workshop on automating object extraction – CMRT09.
- It is important to invest in tracking the early adopter research as this can lead to competitive advantage.
The preliminary program for the ISPRS Laser Scanning 2009 workshop has been published. The topics being discussed include urban modeling, pattern recognition, forestry and full waveform analysis. The event is being held in Paris on September 1 and 2 in conjunction with CMRT09, which will be held on the 3rd and 4th. The latter will focus on automating object extraction of city models, roads and transportation.
If you are interested in state-of-the-art in academic research involving laser scanning you might want to start making plans to attend these workshops. Although it may seem to be a bit too exotic, the cost of traveling to Paris may not be that bad, particularly if you book your flights early. Rooms, meals and local transportation can be quite reasonable if you are frugal, and it is a great place to visit.
This is the 6th edition of the laser scanning conference, and the second for CMRT. In this relatively early stage of market development it is critical to stay in touch with the research community. This is where your competitive advantage can be strengthened. It would only take one good idea to make the trip worthwhile.
I hope to see you there.
