FIG International Congress: Call for Papers

The technical programme of the XXV FIG International Congress 2014 will include a broad professional and scientific programme during 4 consecutive days, offering up to 10 parallel sessions and workshops. This will allow more than 700 presentations in the entire broadness of the surveying profession. The carefully prepared Technical Programme will offer both specially invited high-profile presentations and papers that are selected through the open call for papers procedure. Submission of abstract will open at the end of August 2013.

The Congress is hosted by the International Federation of Surveyors, FIG and the Association of Authorised Land Surveyors Malaysia, PEJUTA as the local host. The main partners of this Congress are the partnering agencies and bodies of United Nations and the World Bank, while allied international and regional professional and non-governmental organisations are also supporting the FIG Congress in 2014.

There is a specific reason for choosing the theme ‘Engaging the Challenges – Enhancing the Relevance’. A wise man once remarked: “In every failure, therein lies the seed of achievement’”. FIG shares the opinion that “In every challenge, therein lies the seed of enhancing relevance,” for surveyors across the globe, who have been diligently enhancing skills and knowledge, whilst exploring new technological platforms to deliver quality services, and contributing to the nation-building success of their respective countries.
