EC Meeting in Madrid, Spain

EC Meeting in Madrid, Spain

During the last Executive Committee meeting in Madrid, we have made the following decisions:

We are preparing a Call for an Extraordinary General Assembly during the ICC2017 in Washington. The purpose is to change some articles of the statues to guarantee a smoother flow of ICA activities.

Establish Regional Cartographic Conference (RCC) series in the non-ICC years. There is a clear need to have ‘local’ conferences next to our bi-annual International Cartographic Conferences, as was recently again proven by the successful EuroCarto event in Vienna. A call to organize the first RCC’s in 2018 is being prepared and will be made public by the end of 2016.

The ICA scholarship rules have been refreshed and can be found at icaci.org/scholarship. We now have scholarships available for young scientists and professionals from our member nations to participate in our ICC’s, the RCC’s and also Commission and Working Group events. There is extra funding available for cartographers and GIScientists from non-developed member states.
