Invitation to joint symposium “Sharing Knowledge”

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.

Invitation to workshop “Eye tracking: why, when, and how?”

Pre-Conference Workshop to the ICC2013

Pre-Conference Workshop to ICC2013
23 (noon)–24 (all day) August 2013 @ the Dresden University of Technology, Germany

The ICA Commissions on Cognitive Visualization, Geovisualization, and Use and User Issues cordially invite you to participate in a hands-on workshop on how to efficiently and effectively collect, analyze, and make sense of eye movement data in empirical user studies. We will work hands-on with real eye-trackers and real data during the workshop, and discuss issues in the group.

This workshop is intended to bring together a broad mix of researchers interested in eye movement data collection methods, ranging from the eye tracking novice who might wish to learn more about this empirical technique, to the seasoned eye tracking expert who wishes to share advanced analytical approaches with other like-minded empirical researchers. Part of the program will use parallel tracks to meet the needs of both novices and experts, and a ‘data challenge’ will form a key component of the meeting.

We thus encourage various avenues for involvement in this hands-on workshop, and call for the following contributions:

We expect your abstract containing a statement of interest, including the type of proposed contribution (ca. 1 page, PDF or MS Word) by February 1, 2013. Please send your contributions to: icacogvis@geo.uzh.ch (Subject: ICC13). Notifications of acceptance: March 1, 2013.

Participation cost: 40 EUR (lunch on the first and second day are included in the workshop fee)

Further details about workshop, registration etc. will be published here: https://www.geo.uzh.ch/microsite/icacogvis/activities.html

Further questions can be directed to the commission chairs: Sara Fabrikant, Gennady Andrienko, and Corné van Elzakker

CET Workshop Opportunities

GIS/Cartography workshops have been successfully organised and conducted in Iran (2009), Indonesia (2010) and Viet Nam (2010), by the CET, on behalf of the International Cartographic Association. An outline of the workshop conditions and format can be found at http://lazarus.elte.hu/cet/workshop/overview.pdf

It may be that such a workshop would benefit GIS officers, cartographers and students in your country. I would like to know if you are interested in co-organising a workshop in your country in 2012 (or 2013) at a mutually acceptable time.

The workshops can be held in up to three, one week, parts. Each part is presented by two people, ideally in a computer laboratory, allowing for hands-on practical exercises to be undertaken by all participants.

Mountain Cartography Workshop in New Zealand in September

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.
