Keynote and Plenary Speeches
We have invited distinguished scientists and policy makers from around the globe to share their experiences and knowledge especially on the conference theme.
Technical Paper Presentations
Several parallel technical and poster sessions will be conducted during ACRS 2015. Authors will present their research papers according to the various conference topics.
Exhibitions and Exhibitors’ Night
A large exhibition hall will be dedicated to sponsors and exhibitors for the promotion of technologies, products and other innovations in the fields of Remote Sensing and other geospatial technologies. An Exhibitors’ Night will be held also (details to follow) as an added promotional and networking activity for the sponsors and exhibitors and will be attended by ACRS 2015 participants and invited guests.
Different workshops related to the conference theme and Remote Sensing in general are being planned during the conference. Further information will be available on the website at www.acrs2015.org/workshops.
Just like in previous ACRS conferences, a number of awards will be given to deserving participants. Details of each award are available at www.acrs2015.org/awards.
|Shunji Murai Award||A young scientist (younger than 40 years old) who has submitted the best paper in advance to the coming ACRS shall be awarded Shunji Murai Award. The prize shall be a certificate and travel funds.|
|AARS Innovation Award||The award will be given to two persons whose papers who are applying innovative ideas in remote sensing technology and applications. The winners will be granted certificates of AARS Innovation Award with a gift as encouragement|
|Chen Shupeng Award||The award will be given to one person who had great contribution to AARS and/or ACRS. His/her travel expenses for attending the coming ACRS will be covered in this Award.|

The certificate with a memorable gift will be presented to each awardee at the closing ceremony of ACRS. JSPRS Awards are sponsored by the Japan Society of Photogrammmetry and Remote Sensing(JSPRS).|
|Green Asia Award||The Chinese Taipei Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (CTSPRS) provides this award for paper presented at the conference that discusses researches directing to a greener Asia with remote sensing technology. One presentation will be awarded each year. The prize will be 300 USD or equivalent gift(s). The award with certificate will be presented in the closing ceremony. A certificate for each author of the awarded paper will be presented.|
Recent net-based services realized the public easy access to satellite/aerial images and other geographic information of any place around the world at any time. Now our interest is “what comes next?” In order to promote students and young scientists and their activities, AARS (Asian Association on Remote Sensing) has organized a web contest called WEBCON1 at ACRS 2011 in Taipei. Following the success of WEBCON1, WEBCON2 was organized at ACRS2012 in Pattaya, Thailand, WEBCON3 at ACRS2013 in Bali, Indonesia, and WEBCON4 at ACRS2014 in Nay Pyi Taw, Myanmar. This year, WEBCON5 is planned to be organized at ACRS 2015. The main objective of the contest is to promote the development of web materials which may give us a future vision of the web related to geo-information sciences. Any students and young scientists who are younger than 35 and have registered to the ACRS 2015 can nominate their web materials to WEBCON5. For more details, please go to http://www.acrs2015.org/webcon/.
The Cultural Night is one of the most anticipated activities every ACRS. The evening of October 20 will be a night of cultural performances from the host country and representatives from participating countries. Every participant is enjoined to have fun, make friends, and enjoy the food and hospitality the Filipinos are known for.
13th ISPRS Student Consortium and WG VI/5 Summer School
Continuing the very successful tradition of the previous summer school started by the ISPRS Student Consortium in 2005, ACRS 2015 will also host the “13th ISPRS Student Consortium and WG VI/5 Summer School”. The Summer School will take place from 24 to 28 October 2015. It will include lectures, practical laboratory exercises, social events, and field trips. Apart from acquiring new knowledge, culture and nature experiences, this is an excellent opportunity to meet lecturers, scientists and locals and strengthen your network. More details are posted in the Summer School Website.
