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. Finished papers ready for publication or distribution in official formal proceedings are not required.

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