The 3rd Joint International Symposium on Deformation Monitoring (JISDM) follows the more than 40 years old tradition of the FIG Symposium series on Deformation Measurements and of the IAG Symposium series on Geodesy for Geotechnical and Structural Engineering. The actual denomination JISDM was introduced five years ago in Hong Kong and expresses the tight collaboration between the two of the most important geodetic organisations the FIG and the IAG in the fields of deformation measurements and deformation analysis. The organisingcommissions within the two associations are:

FIG Commission 6 Engineering Surveys Chair: Dr. Ivo Milev, Bulgaria

Working Group 6.1 Deformation Measurements
and Analysis, Chair: Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Niemeier, Germany

IAG Commission 4 Positioning and Applications Chair: Prof. Dr. Dorota GrejnerBrzezinska, USA

Sub-Commission 4.2 Geodesy in Geospatial Mapping and Engineering, Chair: Prof. Dr. Jinling Wang,

Joint Working Group 0.2.1 New Technologies for
Disaster Monitoring and Management, Chair: Prof. Dr. Ioannis Doukas, Greece

During the three days of the symposium the entire spectrum of deformation studies is covered. The latest methodological developments at theoretical level, modern sensors and measurement technologies as well as applications on man-made structures and natural
objects are contents of the program. One aim of the symposium is to reflect contributions from different fields of Geodesy, like Engineering Geodesy, Spatial Geodesy, Photogrammetry or Remote Sensing, to all topics related to deformation studies. Following the motto of the denomination contributions showing the benefit obtained from the interaction of the abovementioned geodetic fields are welcome. Also contributions resulting from the interdisciplinary activity with related disciplines, like Civil and Mechanical Engineering, are
encouraged. The official language of the conference is English.

To align the proceedings to actual trends in science and to increase their scientific quality a peer-review process is introduced for the first time. However, the participation to the review process is optional. This opportunity maximises the attractiveness of an active contribution to the symposium for scientists and practitioners as well.

The location is beyond scientific scopes a major argument to attend the symposium. Vienna is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. It offers a large number of highlights in architectural, historical and cultural sense. The early spring amplifies the impact of these
highlights, which can be enjoyed at temperatures that are usually moderate in March. The Technische Universität Wien (TU Wien) is the largest technical university in Austria and includes faculties dedicated to all technical and natural sciences. In 2015 the TU Wien is
celebrating its bicentenary.

On behalf of the organising FIG- and IAG-Commissions and of the Local Organising Committee it is our great pleasure to welcome you at the 3rd JISDM in Vienna 2016, 30. March – 01. April.
