FIG Working Week 2020: Take the Stage in Amsterdam! - 14/10/2019

Have you always dreamed about taking the stage? Geospatial surveyors now have a perfect opportunity to do so in the Dutch city of Amsterdam! Submit your abstract before 1 November for a chance to share your views, project results and latest research related to 'Smart Surveying for Land & Water Management' during the FIG Working Week 2020. The event will be held at the RAI Convention Centre in Amsterdam from 10-14 May 2020.

Surveyors are playing an increasingly important role in land & water management, especially as our countries need protection from the effects of climate change: sea-level rise, floods, droughts and other natural disasters. The protection of nature and natural resources demands immediate attention and action and requires smart surveyors and integrated sustainable land & water management.

Exchanging knowledge and technical expertise

Organized by the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG), the FIG Working Week will create the opportunity to exchange knowledge and technical expertise in Integrated Land & Water Management. You can expect an interesting mix of plenary and technical sessions, a trade exhibition and a variety of side events and social events. The technical programme will consist of more than 500 presentations in the field of surveying, including best practices and new research on sensing technologies and spatial data processing.

It is safe to say that the FIG Working Week 2020 will provide you with a vast amount of inspiration, knowledge and new perspectives on geospatial surveying and its often underestimated role in our society.
