FIG Working Week 2017 – Registration

FIG looks forward to seeing each and everyone in Helsinki, Finland from 28 May to 2 June for the annual FIG Working Week.

We are happy to announce that the registration for the 79th FIG Working Week has now opened. Take advantage of the discounted early bird registration fee! For all details and a link to register, please visit: www.fig.net/fig2017/registration.htm

The overall theme of the Working Week is “Surveying the world of tomorrow – From digitalisation to augmented reality”. We have been witnessing the first beginning of a development leading towards services which not only describe the visible world around us but also simultaneously bring up other information connected to our place of interest. One step is to become digitalized and to use the digital information; the next step is to combine information and be able to collect the data intelligently and to take further steps into the intelligent use of digital information. The theme was chosen to highlight the opportunities and open a view into a future where the large amount of information we produce is, again, put into a more efficient use.

The 2017 FIG Working Week theme has a clear technical focus that aims to motivate surveyors of tomorrow to improve their technical skills and qualifications as well as their knowledge and education to deal with challenging and rapidly changing technical aspects. It radically differs from previous themes and leads surveyors to think of future technological possibilities within the wider field of surveying.

If you’re excited about joining us in Helsinki, make sure to book now to take advantage of the early bird fees! Please check www.fig.net/fig2017 for more information
Kind regards,
