6th International Conference on Cartography & GIS
& Seminar with EU cooperation on Early Warning and Disaster/Crisis Management

Albena, Bulgaria, 13–17 June 2016

After very successful events in 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2014, the 6th edition of the International Conference on Cartography and GIS (ICC & GIS) is organized in Bulgaria.

The aim of the conference is to collect knowledge and share experience about the latest achievements in the field of cartography and GIS. Particular attention is paid to the important European region – the Balkan Peninsula. Last conferences were very influential for public administrations and we would like to enhance this trend also in 2016, when the situation in Europe and especially in Balkan countries is very complicated, e.g. facing the immigrant crises could be improved with support of our technologies.

The ICC & GIS conference is organized by the International Cartographic Association (ICA), the Bulgarian Cartographic Association and the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy, Sofia, Bulgaria.

As a part of the conference several other events will be held during 13–17 June:

Deadlines

Get to know the new ICA commissions for the term 2015–2019

27 commissions and 3 working groups were elected for the term 2015–2019 by the ICA General Assembly 2015. We are currently in the process of updating the website to reflect these changes. Also some of the commissions are still preparing or updating their websites. In the meantime, we invite you to have a look at the short “Commissions at a glance” presentations, which the new commissions chairs gave during ICC 2015:
