The yearly Working Week and General Assembly is planned to take place 10-14 May 2020 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.


FIG and the Local Organisers in the Netherlands are closely monitoring and evaluating the extraordinary situation with the COVID-19 virus. Right now the situation develops day by day and FIG and the local organisers are in close contact with partners and stakeholders in order to come to a decision as soon as possible on if and how to proceed with the Working Week. With all the preparations that have been made so far we do hope to welcome you to Amsterdam 10-14 May. On the other hand the health of our participants are also of our concern and we also have a social responsibility that travels are done only when it is safe.


The General Assembly agenda will be published on by the end of next week and will be send to all members.


Due to this extraordinary situation we ask you to not contact us and ask what will happen in case the General Assembly will not be held in Amsterdam. We will get back to you with further information on this if needed.


We understand that you wait for a decision from our side. We try to find the best solution and as soon as possible. We will make an announcement the latest on 31 March with a decision on whether to cancel or to continue with the preparations for the Working Week.
