After 20 years, the South-East Asia Survey Congress heads back to Australia with a four-day event slated for Darwin this August.
Organisers are calling SEASC19 a “must-attend event”, with a detailed program built around the inclusive theme of ‘Collaboration, communication and capacity building’.
Hosted by SSSI and the ASEAN Flag Surveying nations, the 15th SEASC is to be held at the Darwin Convention Centre 15-18 August, drawing an expected 500 surveying and geospatial professionals from all over Australasia.
“SEASC 2019 Darwin is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for our survey and geospatial professionals to hear the important influences and trends in the surveying industry, across four great days,” said Rob Sarib, conference convenor and Surveyor General for the Northern Territory.
Sarib says the ultimate outcome for the congress would be the ratification of a declaration or resolution.
“This statement could identify and prioritise the challenges, and the necessary actions that will be required to ensure the sustainability of our profession, our relevance and value to the community,” said Sarib. “In other words, it would set the foundations for our future.”
He added that the timing of the event will also give delegates a great opportunity to get a taste of the culture of the Top End. SEASC19 takes place at the same time as the annual Darwin Festival, which fills the city with cabaret, theatre, dance, visual arts and outdoor concerts under the stars .
Early bird registration will save delegates $300 and closes 20th May.
