FIG Working Week 2013 Call for Papers10/08/2012
|The FIG Working Week 2013 is to be organised in Abuja, Nigeria, from 6 to 10 May 2013. The overall theme of the Working Week is 'Environment for Sustainability'. Each day of the technical programme will be dedicated to one sub-theme that addresses a particular aspect of the main theme.|
The main theme recognises the need to enhance the relevance and role of the surveying profession in the sustainability of our evolving and dynamic physical, social and economic environment. The theme is selected so that it also implements the theme of the current FIG term of office: “Engaging the Challenge: Enhancing the Relevance”.
The Working Week will bring surveyors and land professionals from all over the world together to meet while specific focus will be given to Africa. The conference is organised jointly by FIG and the Nigerian Institution of Surveyors, NIS, one of the three FIG member associations in Nigeria. The international partners of the Working Week include UN ECA, GLTN and FAO and other UN agencies are supporting the conference. The local partners include the other two Nigerian member associations of FIG namely NIQS and NIESV as well as SURCON and OSGOF. The organisers are expecting up to 3,000 participants to Abuja in May from more than 70 countries.
The opening ceremony and three plenary sessions will address key issues of the surveying profession including latest development in surveying technology, land administration and land tenure, geospatial information, urbanisation and sustainable cities and their relations to cultural heritage and its maintenance.
The technical programme will include a broad professional and scientific programme with 7 slots each offering from 6 up to 10 parallel sessions and workshops. With flash presentations the programme offers more than 300 presentations in a three-day technical programme.
A Call for Papers has been issued, where professionals are invited to submit a paper by 30 November 2012 through http://www.fig.net/abstractdb/submit.asp?id=18.

It's not an AUV but an UAV. So an unmanned vehicle, but in the air instead of underwater. This movie shows a demonstration of the bathymetric laser scanning capabilities of the RIEGL VQ-820-GU hydrographic airborne sensor in reality. For more information on the technical side, please see the news release on Hydro International.
