FIG Working Week 2016

Earthquake recovery in Christchurch

The topic of the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) working week 2016 is "Recovery from Disaster." It will take place at the Horncastle arena and Addington Events Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand from May 2 through May 6. Appropriately enough, Christchurch has deep familiarity with recovery from disaster after the 2010-11 earthquake sequence that took place there.

Abstract submissions are now closed.
