ISPRS2012 offers delegates eight exciting days of tutorials, presentations and technical tours. The main technical programme will consist of plenary sessions, oral presentation sessions with up to twelve parallel streams, and short presentation sessions with interactive, digital posters. And of course there will also be an engaging social programme that will be a mix of cultural and sporting events. Whether you prefer an evening dining at the theatre or a taste of Australian rules football, there will be something for you to enjoy. The social programme will be just a small sample of the highlights of Melbourne, Victoria and Australia.
