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.

Check out our Schedule at a Glance in the side-panel to your right. You can review the full program by clicking here, the Program link in the side-panel, or through the 2015 Conference->Program menu item.

Registration for the 2015 conference is now open.

Please register using this link, the Conference Registration link in the side-panel, or through the Conference Registration menu item.

After successfully registering for the conference, please click on each session you’re interested in attending in the panel on the right, and when the session comes up, click on send your booking to book a ticket for that session. This creates your personalized conference event calendar, My Sessions, and helps us with space-planning.
