ISPRS mourns the loss of Prof. Einari Kilpelä, 1937-2016
It is my sad duty to inform the ISPRS Community that Prof. Einari Kilpelä died 1.12.2016 at age of 79 years after a long illness.
Prof. Kilpelä was chair of the photogrammetric institute of the Helsinki University of Technology from 1976-1993 and served ISPRS in many functions. He was President of Commission III for two successive periods (1980-88) and Chair of the Financial Commission. He also designed two prestigious ISPRS awards, the Helava medal and the medal for the Doyle Award.
The funeral service will be held in Hietalahti chapel, Helsinki, on 17th of December at 9 am followed by a memorial service at the restaurant Laulumiehet, Helsinki.
