In conjunction with the 28th International Cartographic Conference, held in Washington DC on 2–7 July 2017 (http://icc2017.org/), the Library of Congress’ Geography & Map Division and the three ICA Commissions on the History of Cartography, Toponymy, and Atlases would like to invite you to attend their joint pre-conference Workshop Charting the Cosmos of Cartography: History – Names – Atlases.
The workshop will be held at the Library of Congress (Madison Building) in Washington DC (USA), from Wednesday, 28 June to Friday, 30 June 2017.
Call for Papers
- Deadline for submissions: 15 February 2017

Participants are invited to submit abstracts on any topic of merit addressing at least one of the subjects of the partnering ICA Commissions. The abstracts should be between 200 and 500 words long, written in English and provided as a Word file using this template. A brief biographical note should also be provided at the end of the abstract. Each author, either as sole author or co-author, may only submit one paper proposal; each paper has to be an original contribution that has not been published or presented before.
All submissions must be sent electronically via the online submission system. When submitting, authors will also be asked to indicate their interest to write a full paper after the conference which – if enough authors are interested – will be published in a dedicated conference volume.
