The call for papers, as well as all the details are available at http://artcarto.wordpress.com/2014/01/17/appel-a-communication-cartographie-et-recits-montreal-12-13-mai-2014/
Dear Colleagues and friends:
As a collaboration among ISPRS, IGU and ICA, we are going to organize a joint Workshop on Borderlands Modeling and Understanding for Global Sustainability. It will be organized from December 5 to 6, 2013, in Beijing. The main purpose is to promote inter-disciplinary scientific research and academic exchange on the application of imagery and geo-information in borderlands understanding. Please check out the website or read the call for paper PDF.
May I ask you to have a look at the announcement and pass this information to your colleagues and students as well as those people who might be interested?
Please allow me to bother you with news of the ICA Commission on Map Production and Geobusiness – some SOMAP news for 2013:
- The book on Service-Oriented Mapping 2012 is available in the webshop of our publisher.
- We will have a joint commission activity before the International Cartographic Conference 2013 in Dresden.
We call for participation in the 16th Generalisation Workshop jointly organised by the ICA Commission on Generalisation and Multiple Representation and the ICA Commission on Map Production and Geo-Business. The workshop will be held in Dresden, Germany, 23–24 August 2013, prior to the International Cartographic Conference. Participation and attendance at the two day workshop requires submission of research papers or position papers.
Key dates are:
- 15 March 2013: deadline for submission of short papers (limit 3000 words, and 8 pages including figures)
- 25 April 2013: notification of acceptance of paper for presentation (& invitation)

ICA Workshop on Street Networks and Transport
Pre-Conference Symposium to ICC2013
23 August 2013 @ the Dresden University of Technology, Germany
The ICA Commissions on Cartography and Children, Education and Training, Maps and Graphics for Blind and Partially Sighted People and Planetary Cartography have the pleasure to invite you to a one day joint symposium on August 23.
The aim of the symposium – as expressed by the title – is to give an opportunity to the members of the four commissions (and participants in general) to share and learn about the research in the topics covered by the commissions during the last years. This will be a one-day programme divided into four sessions, each of them dedicated to one of the participating commissions.
The Call for Papers is open until April 26.
Please visit the symposium website for more information: http://lazarus.elte.hu/jointsymposium2013/
If you have any question in relation to the event, please contact José Jesús Reyes Nunez.
[ More pre-conference events and activities can be found at http://icaci.org/icc2013/ ]
The most important date for all cartographers for 2013 is 25–30 August 2013, when the International Cartographic Conference will take place in Dresden, Germany.
The deadline for submissions has been extended to 15 November 2012!
This allows all of us working in cartography and GI Science to prepare our papers or abstracts accordingly, so that we can share our concepts, ideas and results in the conference. You are able to indicate, if you want your submission to be reviewed on the full paper and thus qualify eventually for a journal or book publication as well as for a presentation or you prefer a review based on the abstract and qualify for the presentation sessions and proceedings. Please check out all details on www.icc2013.org.
Whatever you are up for, it is most important, that all of us are contributing actively by submitting papers and abstracts, so that the conference can be a true platform of those working in cartography and GIScience and reflect the relevance, attractiveness and innovative character of our domain.
We would like to inform you about the 9th International Symposium on Location-Based Services, which will take place in Munich, Germany, from October 16 to 18, 2012.
Given the fact, that a number of activities and industries in the domain of GNSS, LBS and geoinformation management are situated in and around Munich, this promises to be an excellent venue.
The call for paper is currently open, please consider the deadline of April 15, 2012.
Publication in either the Journal on LBS and/or a book within the series Lecture Notes on Geoinformation and Cartography is anticipated.
Detailed information can be found at http://www.lbs2012.tum.de.
The next Mountain Cartography Workshop will be held in New Zealand near Taurewa, adjacent to the Tongariro National Park south of Auckland (North Island) between 1 and 5 September 2012.
The theme of the Workshop is Mapping Mountain Dynamics: from glaciers to volcanoes, in recognition of the unique natural environment of the host country New Zealand. The Workshop will focus on current developments in mountain cartography and present state of the art approaches to cartographic representations in large scale topographic mapping, symbolization and map design, as well as discuss technological issues, map use and links with Location-based Services (LBS).
Abstract submissions are welcome on any topic relating to mountain cartography, large scale topographic mapping, visualization of mountainous landscapes and artistic renderings and representations of terrain, and covering work of an academic and/or professional nature. Further details can be found on the invitation page.
The ICA commission on GeoVisualization announces a CfP for the workshop “GeoVA(t) – GeoVisual Analytics: Time to Focus on Time” at GIScience 2012 and a special issue of the Information Visualization journal. The deadline for submitting extended abstracts is May 1, 2012.
For details, please check http://geoanalytics.net/GeoVA(t)2012. We are looking forward to your contributions.
