for land surveyors from around the world to meet up and hear first-hand
about cadastral developments in different scenarios, to share experiences,
and to learn about what is happening in this particular sector of

reflecting the long-term history of culture and science and at the same
time surrounded by a scenic landscape and pure nature. Excellent public

bring you in short time to Coimbra.
The local organisers from the Portuguese Association supported by the
colleagues from the University of Coimbra have prepared for a most
interesting programme including social events, an accomanying persons
programme and including a one-day special excursion on 28 October 2016 to
the famous wine region of the Douro river and Porto, both classified by
UNESCO as World Heritage.
The topic of the technical part of the programme as well as the planning
for the social part let expect a most exciting week in Portugal.

FIG Commission 7 Annual Meeting
Workshop on Crowdsourcing of Land Information
Joint FIG Commission 7 and 3 meeting
It is a great pleasure to invite you to
this year Annual Meeting of Commission 7, which will be
held on 16-20 November 2015 in Malta,
Europe. The Annual Meeting will be linked to an
International Workshop on Crowdsourcing of Land Information,
co-organised by FIG Commission 3 and Commission 7.
The most interesting theme of the Workshop
and high-level presentations linking subjects from the
perspectives of both Commissions involved as well as the
location in the very centre of the Mediterranean Basin with
surrounding countries representing a big variety of professional
background lets expect a vibrant event.
The planning for the sessions will be twofold – while Commission
3 has launched a call for peer reviewed papers, Commission 7
stays as before with invited speakers and non-peer reviewed
papers for the Annual Meeting. Delegates are welcome to submit
their proposals to
firstname.lastname@example.org. If you wish to apply for a
peer-reviewed paper, please go to the website of Commission3, if
the subject is within the scope of the call.
A special thank to the director of the
organising committee, well known FIG colleague Randolph
Camilleri, who has put all his efforts to arrange for the
meeting at an excellent venue in Malta and to provide an
attractive programme for accompanying persons and a social
programme for the Delegates. And thanks to Robin McLaren, Chair
of WG 7.3 for strongly supporting for arranging for the
Technical Sessions of Com7.
