About ACRS 2017 

The 38th Asian Conference on Remote Sensing ( ACRS 2017 ) will take place during October 23 -27, 2017 , New Delhi, India. ACRS 2017 will represent a major event in the long series of successful ACRS conferences. The main theme of the conference is Space Applications: Touching Human Lives. ACRS 2017 will bring together students, researchers, scientists, engineers, policy makers, professionals and practitioners from developed and developing countries from and around Asia to share insights into the challenges and opportunities of Remote Sensing and related geospatial technologies in building resiliency and encouraging inclusive economic growth in one, dynamic Asia. It also aims to be a platform for international engagement to ensure that knowledge is generated in partnership with society. 

About ISPRS WG V/8 
ISPRS Working Group V/8 aims to promote open source and the development of free software on geospatial technologies, mainly in the fields of photogrammetry, remote sensing, and GIS. To facilitate this, the WG organizes joint sessions , tutorials and webinars to promote and exchange the experiences of open source development. The WG will collaborate closely with OSGeo and other ISPRS working groups, and will cooperate with other local and international groups to promote and contribute to open source. The promotion of open source can provide us free software and make accessible the latest geospatial technologies to the wider ISPRS community.
