September 18-21, 2000 Malta
Mediterranean Surveyors in the new Millennium


Seminar organised by FIG Commissions 2,4,5,6 and 7 and The Land Surveyor’s Society - Malta


Invitation to the Technical Program

The seminar is a unique opportunity for surveyors to meet and discuss common problems and we believe that it is of great importance that everyone uses this opportunity. The program will cover the state-of-the-art for many of the working fields for a traditional surveyor as well as look forward to foresee where our occupation is heading. A number of distinguished international and national speakers will present and discuss their views in areas as education, standards, measuring techniques, engineering surveys, hydrography, land management. We will focus mainly on the application view of these subjects. Even though the theme is Mediterranean Surveyors in the Future many of these questions are relevant to other areas around the world and we believe that any surveyor in the world will benefit from the interesting program in an excellent environment.

The technical presentations will run for almost three days (Monday — Wednesday) and the seminar ends with a technical tour. The presentations are divided in eight different sessions and the discussions focus on the surveyors role and activities in the future.

Invitation from the Land Surveyors’ Society - Malta

On behalf of the Land Surveyors Society of Malta, I would like to extend a most cordial invitation to the Malta Seminar, which is being jointly organised by various FIG Commissions and our Society.

Rest assured that the local organising committee, which I am proud to Chair, is leaving no stone unturned to ensure that this important seminar will turn out to be a great success from all angles.

We are confident that distinguished experts and lecturers, whose vast experience in their own particular field is second to none, will address the seminar. Apart from the purely technical aspect, the programme includes a number of interesting tours and social activities. We have also planned a post seminar tour of the Maltese islands for those who would like to prolong their stay.

Malta is rich in culture, history and architecture. It is rightly regarded as the priceless ‘gem’ of the Mediterranean and is fastly becoming one of the main tourist attractions of the region. Malta is usually exceptionally beautiful in September. I am sure that Malta will provide each and every participant and their guests with most pleasant memories.

We will be delighted to greet you in September 2000.
