Seoul, 8 – 10 November 2023 – Two researchers from the Faculty of Built Environment and Surveying (FABU) at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) recently took part in an international conference organized by the International Federation of Surveyors (FIG) – Young Surveyors Asia & the Pacific Network. The 4th Young Surveyors Asia & the Pacific Meeting (#4YSAPM) was held this year, in conjunction with Smart Geo Expo 2023 (SGE2023), with the theme “Geo-Revolution, Better Life for All”. The event took place from November 8th to November 10th, 2023, at the Korea International Exhibition Centre (KINTEX) in Goyang-si, South Korea.

This three-day event was co-hosted by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport (MOLIT) in Korea, with support from the FIG Foundation and FIG Young Surveyors Network (YSN). Dr. Kelvin Tang Kang Wee from Geomatic Innovation Research Group (GnG), FABU, served as the Chair of the #4YSAPM this year, which brought together 25 young surveyors and professionals from 8 different countries with diverse cultural backgrounds, surveying traditions, and professional experiences. The event aimed to provide a platform for these young surveyors and professionals to strengthen cooperation and bridge differences, paving the way for a more resilient future for all.

Dr. Amalina Izzati Abdul Hamid, a Post-Doctoral Fellow at Geospatial Imaging & Information Research Group (Gi2RG), was recently awarded the FIG Foundation Grant. She received a grant worth EUR1000 which covered all expenses, including visa fees, flight tickets, and accommodation, allowing her to attend an important event. During the event, she had the opportunity to showcase her research and network with other young researchers from the Asia Pacific region. Congratulations to Dr. Amalina Izzati Abdul Hamid on her achievement!
