Call for Abstracts for PhD Colloquium on Deep Learning in Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Geospatial Information Processing

Call for Abstracts: 4th PhD Colloquium on “Deep Learning in Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Geospatial Information Processing”

May 15-16, 2019 in Rostock

The Division on Geoinformatics (Abteilung Geoinformatik) of the German Geodetic Commission (Deutsche Geodätische Kommission, DGK) and the Working Group on Geoinformatics (Arbeitskreis Geoinformatik) of the German Society for Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Geoinformation (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Photogrammetrie, Fernerkundung und Geoinformation, DGPF) will hold their fourth joint PhD colloquium on May 15-16, 2019, at Rostock University.

The colloquium aims to stimulate scientific exchange between young researchers in the interdisciplinary fields of photogrammetry, remote sensing, cartography, geoinformatics and others. It is targeted at PhD students who have already made considerable advances in their PhD projects and are motivated to share their findings as well as open for feedback and discussions. PhD students from all disciplines dealing with geospatial information processing (e.g., geoinformatics, photogrammetry, computer science, cartography, geography, remote sensing, etc.) are welcome.

We particularly invite PhD students working on problems related to the following focus topic of this year’s PhD colloquium “Deep Learning in Photogrammetry, Remote Sensing and Geospatial Information Processing”.

Contributions must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Each contribution must be summarized and submitted in form of an abstract of about two pages. Based on the submissions PhD students will be invited.
  • Each accepted abstract will be presented either in a short (5 minute) talk or in a full-length talk of approx. 30 minutes.
  • We encourage presenters of both short and full-length talks to address open problems rather than to report their published results.

The language of the colloquium is English. The colloquium will be chaired by multiple professors from geoinformatics.

Advanced PhD lectures on the focus topic will be given by Prof. Franz Rottensteiner (University of Hannover) and Prof. Ribana Roscher (University of Bonn).

Participation is free of charge. Applications (including name, affiliation, and abstract) are to be sent by January 27, 2019 via e-mail to Jan-Henrik Haunert (

The Organizers:

  • Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jan-Henrik Haunert, Bonn
  • Prof. Dr. Bernhard Höfle, Heidelberg
  • Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ralf Bill, Rostock
