2021-11-04: Proceedings from the ISDRS conference 2021 are now published

We are pleased to announce that the proceedings from the ISDRS conference in Östersund this summer have been published. The proceedings contain all accepted abstracts, full papers and posters from the 3-day conference in July.

The publication date has been put forward several times due to the difficulties with the document management system, but also because of the sheer volume of submissions. Over 800 researchers from all over the world have submitted nearly 500 abstracts, full papers and posters.

Editors for the proceedings are professors Volker Mauerhofer and Catrin Johansson, who were also Conference Chairs.

Please do not attempt to print the whole of this document, since it contains over 2000 pages.

2021-07-06: Conference proceedings for ISDRS2021, We have decided to extend the deadline for reviews and revisions of full papers submitted for inclusion in the conference proceedings. We acknowledge that all reviews have not yet been performed, thus the previous time schedule was too tight, and our ambition to publish the conference proceedings before the conference was too optimistic. The extension of the deadline is to ensure that all submitters get sufficient time for revisions and an equal and fair treatment. The new deadline for reviews of full papers is 23rd July. The new deadline for uploading a revised full paper in the OA system for inclusion in the conference proceedings is 20th August. With this extension we also hope that all submitters of full papers can benefit from the feedback on their presentations during the conference.

Please note that submitted abstracts and full papers will be accessible for participants during the conference, and that the revised full papers will be published in the conference proceedings in late August/beginning of September.
