FIG Working Week is an exciting week-long conference that brings the international community of surveying and spatial professionals together to discuss key challenges of our time within the surveying profession with fellow peers.



FIG Working Week 2021 should have taken place in Accra, Ghana, but the Ghanaian local organisers are showing a real FIG spirit and have generously offered the Dutch to take over the Working Week in 2021. The FIG Working Week 2020 was cancelled due to the COVID-19.

The Local Organising Committee, supported by GIN, Kadaster and ITC – Faculty of UTwente, is looking forward to welcoming you to the Netherlands in the spring of 2021. We all hope that a vaccine is developed and that most measurements are lifted enabling us to travel freely and to attend meetings.

What can you expect at the FIG Working Week in 2021? Your registration is automatically moved to next year. It will give you access as attendee to the event. For both FIG and LOC it is most important that we create an opportunity where our community can meet.

Our original venue, RAI, was booked 4 years in advance (in 2016!). Unfortunately there was no opportunity to host our event at RAI.

We have now the advantage to find a venue that fits with the flexibility needs of a post COVID-19 outbreak as well has options to offer a hybrid event. Options are considered in the 4 largest cities in the Netherlands, all within 1 hour travel distance from Amsterdam. As soon as a venue is selected we can announce the dates.

The theme for the event will stay the same. There will be room to focus on our experiences related to COVID-19. In autumn a call for papers will be announced. And for those who want to present their FIG2020 paper, they will be given the opportunity to do so.

Thank you to our sponsors and supporters, we really do appreciate you being part of the FIG Working Week 2021!
