The ICA Commission on Geospatial Analysis and Modeling and the ICA Commission on Location-Based Services are organizing a pre-ICC2017 symposium on location-based social media and tracking data.

The programme has just been published on the symposium at lbs.icaci.org. In total, we have accepted 27 oral presentations for the symposium. These presentations will be organized into 6 oral sessions, covering

  • theories and data models,
  • participation and user tasks,
  • traffic modelling,

Invitation to the ICC2017 Pre-Conference Symposium on Location-Based Social Media and Tracking Data

Symposium-header

The ICA Commission on Geospatial Analysis and Modeling and the ICA Commission on Location-Based Services invite you to a pre-ICC2017 symposium on location-based social media and tracking data. The growing availability and use of location-based social media data and tracking data (e.g., GPS tracking) have created unprecedented opportunities for researchers from various disciplines. At the same time, it also challenges people with new theoretical, technical, ethical, and social questions. This symposium attempts to bring together researchers from various fields and perspectives to share ideas and findings of their research related to location-based social media data or location tracking and sensing data.

Please find the detailed invitation here.

President’s Blog: Invitation to ICC2017

Our bi-annual International Cartographic Conferences are highlights on the cartographic calendar. It is with great pleasure that I invite you to Washington, DC, in the United States to participate in ICA’s 28th conference. It promises to be a unique and successful event. It will be unique because we will experience the developments in our discipline since the previous conference. These developments will be expressed in papers and posters and in exhibitions of maps and technology. Unique because Washington, DC, is the center of US cartography, and many organizations and companies will share their knowledge with us. Successful because you will be there too.

Menno-Jan Kraak
– President of the International Cartographic Association

 

The Call for Papers is now open. Please find all details on the ICC2017 website.
