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.

Program submissions are now being accepted for the 2015 IFD&TC.  Please review the topic lists provided by the conference organizers for suggested topics for both field and technology-based presentations, panel discussions, and roundtables.

When you are ready to submit an abstract, please click for instructions and links to create a submission.
