State-of-the-art information, together with many interesting discussions all around cartography and its many facets – this is what the 2020 (Virtual) EuroCarto is all about, plus much, much more, so be sure to join us between September the 21st and 25th.
This event, which is co-organized by the German, Austrian and Swiss Cartographic Societies, is also the 68th German Cartography Congress as well as a regional conference of the International Cartographic Association (ICA).
As a direct consequence of the Corona Pandemic, holding the planned event in Vienna was unfortunately just not possible. But this virtual edition of EuroCarto 2020 is more than just a substitute:
From Monday to Friday there will be up to three presentation sessions, held either in the early afternoon or early evening.
You can look forward to an extensive and wide-ranging program – which you will find on the conference website eurocarto2020.org. Among the highlights will be Keynotes by Tim Trainor (President of ICA), Gerd Buziek (Esri Deutschland, on the subject of COVID 19-Dashboard) and Wolfgang Kainz (University of Vienna).
The technical and temporal framework has been arranged in such a way that there will also be many opportunities for discussions with your peers and further to the many presentation sessions there will also be further possibilities for professional and social exchange (e.g. at a “Carto Café extra”).
Thanks to our sponsors – Esri DE/CH, Schubert & Franzke, GeoVille Information Systems and Data Processing and the open access journal publisher MDPI – participation in EuroCarto 2020 is free of charge for all!
The mandatory online registration form can be found at eurocarto2020.org – however due to technical restrictions, the number of participants is limited to 400 – so don’t wait, register now to be sure you can join us!
