The FIG Working Week has been cancelled. This is not a decision we have taken lightly and there are two overriding concerns that have caused us to make this decision at this time.

First, the Dutch Government announced new measurements to control the COVID-19 outbreak. In the Netherlands all gatherings are prohibited until 1 June.

Second, our primary concern is always the wellbeing of you, and we would not take on the responsibility, during these times, to bring so many surveyors from all over the world together.

The International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) and Geo-Informatie Nederland (GIN) are hosting the exciting week-long conference, that brings the international community of surveying and geospatial 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 technical programme is very comprehensive and the organisers have received around 550 proposals for presentations, including 50 Peer Review papers.
