To all motivated and interested students, young researchers and specialists

Dear All

We are pleased to invite you to:

XX Jubilee Meeting IGSM of the International Geodetic Students Organization which will be held at the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy, Sofia, Bulgaria (2 – 8 May, 2007)

This International Geodetic Students Meeting (IGSM) is an annual event. Its main purpose is to gather Geodesy students from all over the world and to provide them the opportunity not only to share professional experience but also to get closer to each other and to make new friends. As organizers we have done our best to prepare an interesting program that would be useful and informative as well as entertaining. Moreover, IGSM 2007 will present a chance for you to get acquainted with Bulgarian culture and its traditions, customs and contemporary way of living. Our country is located on the cross-road of many ancient civilizations. Bulgaria has impressive century’s long history, breathtaking nature and delicious cuisine. In addition, the lectures of professors from different universities and scientific institutes will introduce you to the latest achievements in the field of Geodesy and other related disciplines.

At the annual General Assembly of IGSO we will discuss issues in connection with the organization statute and its relations with professional organizations such as FIG, ISPRS, etc. Further, we will review applications for admission of new members as well as the development perspectives of the organization at local and global level.

Bulgaria’s recent joining to the European Union further expands the opportunities for cultural exchange and successful carrier paths for motivated young people as this process will affect in a positive way their professional and social development. We are confident that IGSM will respond to students’ and researchers’ demands and interests. Organizing a meeting of such a scale is a great challenge to all of us and we hope to meet your expectations.

We believe that everyone will find something new and exciting here and also a part of everyone’s heart will remain in Bulgaria forever. We hope that IGSM 2007 will become an unforgettable adventure for all of us.

Welcome to Bulgaria!
We are looking forward to meeting you!

On behalf of Organizing Committee

IGSO 2007 Secretary General
