President’s Blog: A landmark conference in Eastern Europe

The already 9th International Conference on Cartography and GIS has taken place in Bulgaria this time in Nessebar from 16-21 June 2024. The ICCGIS is a biannual conference that started in 2006 and had attracted attendees from more than 60 countries and has published more than 700 scientific papers in its proceedings.

The event has been organized by the Bulgarian Cartographic Association and the University of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Geodesy of Sofia, namely by Silvia Marinova and Temenoujka Bandrova. ICA is endorsing this conference, as it gives Cartography an international platform and allows to collect knowledge and share experiences about the latest achievements of Cartography and GIS.

Despite more than 100 presentations and  31 poster presentations four ICA Commission held their meetings at Nessebar, the Commission on Cartography and Children chaired by Silvia Marinova, the Commission on Cartography in Early Warning and Crisis Management with co-chairs Shen Jie and Christophe Lienert the Commission on Maps and the Internet chaired by Otakar Čerba and the Commission on Map Projections, chaired by Krisztian Kerkovits.

The organisers managed to have the presidents of ISDE (Alessandro Annoni), ISPRS (Lena Halounova) and ICA (Georg Gartner) being present, identifying the mutual interests of those societies and associations to contribute to global challenges by the means of cartography, GIScience and the wider geospatial industries.
