Welcome to the International Field Directors and Technologies
Conference (IFD&TC) website!

The IFD&TC website has undergone a major renovation this year!  Please click to learn more about the site redesign.

The IFD&TC provides a unique forum for government, academic institutions and not-for-profit agencies to informally communicate with each other. Attendees include field directors, field technicians and survey managers. There are no membership dues and the only activity is our annual conference each May.

The conference sessions are informal and focus on innovations, work in progress or recently completed work. Highlights include exchanges of information, practices and opinions. Finished papers ready for publication or distribution in official formal proceedings are not required.

The program submission period for the 2015 IFD&TC has now closed.  Those who submitted abstracts were sent notification of the status of their abstract(s) on Friday, February 20th. If you did not receive an e-mail please be sure to check your spam folder or other filters. Please contact Kelly Elver at kelver@wisc.edu, or call her at (608) 262-7360 with questions.

Census Bureau staff will receive abstract status notification in the first week of March and should contact their Census Coordinator with questions.

Registration will begin in mid-March, and a draft program will be posted on the website at that time.
