April 22 - April 26
The International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) and the Vietnam Association of Geodesy – Cartography – Remote Sensing (VGCR) has announced the holding of the FIG Working Week 2019, with the theme “Geospatial Information for a Smarter Life and Environmental Resilience”, to be held at the Vietnam National Convention Center, Hanoi, Vietnam on 22-26 April 2019.
Such an exciting week is expected to bring the international community of surveying and spatial professionals together to experience a mix of interesting plenary and technical sessions and workshops, a trade exhibition and a variety of side events and social functions. The conference will also offer a unique opportunity to discuss key challenges of our time within the surveying profession with fellow peers.
The year 2019 is a very significant time for the Vietnamese community of surveyors as they will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of Surveying and Mapping Day of Vietnam (14/12/1959 – 14/12/2019) and the 30th birthday of the VGCR (1989 – 2019). Together with the 65th anniversary of Hanoi’s independence (1954 – 2019), the FIG Working Week 2019 will add a great contribution to the festive atmosphere to honor and celebrate this UNESCO’s City of Peace.
