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

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.

2017 is the 51st Annual IFD&TC, and abstracts for participation are
currently being accepted!  The deadline for submission is January 13, 2017.

Looking for colleagues to join your panel discussion, or work collaboratively on an abstract submission?  IFD&TC now offers a forum where you can look for ideas and post yours. Please note: The IFD&TC forum is private, only available after logging in to the site.  If you log in successfully and are redirected to this page, simply click on the forums link above again to enter the forum.
