Full text: International cooperation and technology transfer

Dear colleagues and friends, 
the ISPRS WG “International Cooperation and Technology 
Transfer”, together with the Italian Society of Surveying and 
Photogrammetry, according to the best wishes of the past and 
new Presidents of the Society, organized a Prof. Mariano 
Cunietti’s Memorial Meeting, in the third week of February, at 
the University of Parma (Italy). 
The aim of this Memorial Meeting is to celebrate the person of 
Prof. Mariano Cunietti, who died in July of two years ago and 
his important role at national and international level. Notice that 
this isn’t an official ISPRS event; however the Prof. Mariano 
Cunietti’s Memorial Meeting is strongly related to ISPRS. 
Indeed an official meeting of the ISPRS WG VI/3 was 
scheduled in the first week of February, at the University of 
Cape Town. This meeting in Italy would represent a repetition, 
because the two places are far enough. Unfortunately 
unforeseeable and undesirable difficulties and troubles in 
Indonesia imposed to delay of one year the ISPRS TC VI Mid 
Term Symposium. 
The ISPRS Council canceled the Meeting in Cape Town, 
because of an evident conflict of date. However the patience 
and the will of the ISPRS WG VI/3 staff obtained to participate, 
as Cooperating Working Group, in a new official meeting to be 
held in the second week of December, in Cotonou (Benin). 
I thank very much the Academic Authorities of both the 
University of Parma and the Polytechnic of Milan, particularly 
the first one for the hospitality, taking into account the 
important contribution given by Prof. Gianfranco Forlani; let 
me thank Proffs. Gottfried Konecny and Karl Kraus too, all the 
speakers of both opening and technical sessions and the 
participants in this meeting. 
I sincerely hope that the spirit and the lesson of Prof. Mariano 
Cunietti’s life might do everybody in the future richer than in 
the past, so that everybody may return home, after the meeting, 
better than his departure. Finally let me recall that the last 
meeting of the ISPRS WG VI/3 will be held, in the first week 
of February of a next year, in Ljubljana (Slovenia). 
local host, not only a famous scientist, but also a sincere and 
cooperative friend since a very long period. 
Finally I’m sure that the meeting has been fruitful and positive 
for all of you, recognizing the importance of the international 
cooperation and technology transfer. 
I hope to meet you again in Cotonou and/or in Ljubljana and in 
Amsterdam. Thanks a lot again, ciao. 
Dear colleagues and friends, 
after one week of hard work, interesting discussion and nice 
events, now this meeting is finishing.

Cunietti, the spirit of his life, on both scientific and human 
points of view, and the lesson that he gave us. 
Successively let me thank again Prof. Gianfranco Forlani, our
