FIG Commission 7
FIG Commission 7 annual meeting and GeoConference 2014
7-11 October Québec, Canada
The Commission 7 team, in close collaboration with our
Canadian colleagues and the Fédération des géomètres francophones (FGF –
the Francophone Federation of Surveyors), is preparing this year a
unique event which will take place in the Old Quebec City, Canada, a
UNESCO World Heritage.
The theme of GeoConference 2014 «Revoir notre monde» (Revisiting our
world) will be a unique opportunity to discuss, share ideas about the
future of land management and Geomatics from a perspective of
sustainable development. Among the renowned speakers let’s mention: Mr.
Edmond Mulet, Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN) for
Peacekeeping Operations who will talk about his experience as head of
the UN Mission in Haiti following the devastating earthquake in 2010;
Mrs Vanessa Lawrence, Secretary General of Ordnance Survey International
and co-chair of the United Nations Global Geospatial Information
Management initiative (UN-GGIM) and Mr. Carlo Ratti, professor and chair
of the Massachusets Institute of Technologies (MIT) Senseable City Lab
and included in the Wired Magazine’s ‘Smart List 2012 of the 50 people
who will change the world’.
GeoConference 2014 will also welcome the FGF General Assembly and the
FIG Commission 7 Annual meeting. The FIG Commission Annual meeting will
take place in the Montmorency Forest, one hour drive from Quebec. A
natural and quiet area to present our main achievements, discuss about
challenge and perspectives and prepare the next work plan. This annual
meeting is open to all.
