December 22, 2009 -- FIG released the first draft of the Technical Program for XXIV FIG International Congress 2010 today. The organizers received more than 850 proposals for presentation from 80-plus countries. This includes more than 700 nonpeer-reviewed and more than 100 peer-reviewed papers.

Among those accepted for presentation is the abstract proposal “Paperless e surveying with Mr Laptop Surveyor” by surveyor Richard Abbott (RADU), of South Australia, and longtime contributor to POB magazine’s forum. Abbott said “he hopes that a few POBers will make their way to Sydney and then venture west to South OZ for some old fashioned hospitality.” Another longtime contributor, James Ray, will present "A Precise 3D Method for Total Station Field Data Collection."

The accepted papers will be presented in technical sessions, in flash sessions and special workshops and forums. Abbott’s presentation is tentatively set for a session on Tuesday, April 13, from 8:30 to 10 a.m., while Ray's presentation is scheduled for later that afternoon in a session from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
FIG said that the technical program will experience changes in session slots and timing. Peer- reviewed papers that are still under evaluation have not yet been included. The deadline for submitting full papers is January 21, 2010, and there will be no extensions.
FIG Congress 2010 - Facing the Challenges - Building the Capacity takes place April 11-16 in  Sydney, Australia. For more information, go to
