Workshop on historical maps, atlases and toponymy, Leipzig, Germany, August 2013

As a pre-conference event of the 26th International Cartographic Conference which will take place in Dresden, 25–30 August 2013, three ICA commissions/working groups (on Atlases, on the History of Cartography, on Toponymy) have organized a workshop on historical maps, atlases and toponymy at the Leibniz Institute of Regional Geography [Leibniz Institut für Länderkunde], Schongauer Straße 9, Leipzig, Germany, 22–23 August 2013. This workshop is conceived as a sequence of paper presentations with a focus on the function and use of place names on historical maps and in all kinds of atlases (ranging from scientific to school atlases and from macro-regional and national atlases to city atlases). All papers will be presented in the plenary with members of all three commissions/working groups present.

You need not be a member, corresponding member or associated expert of one of our WG/commissions to take part. Every person interested is very welcome. No registration fee is requested. So far we have 20 papers in the programme, among them presentations by Christopher Board, Ferjan Ormeling and Ernst Spiess.

The workshop is conveniently scheduled for Thursday and Friday before ICC Dresden starts on Sunday and will last from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursday and 9 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. on Friday with a social dinner on Thursday evening and the offer of guided tours in small groups to the famous geographical and cartographic library of the hosting institute at various times.
