AutoCarto 2020 postponed to November

In light of the important public health considerations related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the AutoCarto Organizing Committee has decided to postpone AutoCarto 2020 until November 2020. The new dates for the conference are Tuesday, November 18, through Friday, November 20, with workshops on Tuesday, November 17. The venue will remain the same – the Esri campus in Redlands, California.

We are still working out the details related to registrations and paper submissions. Please bear with us while we determine the best way to handle these and other important issues. In the meantime, please modify any arrangements you may have made to travel to California in May.

If you have any specific issues or concerns, please email the conference chair, Aileen Buckley (abuckley@esri.com). We appreciate your patience as we continue to make arrangements for these new dates for AutoCarto 2020.

AutoCarto 2020: 2nd Call for Submissions

The Cartography and Geographic Information Society (CaGIS) is pleased to announce the 2nd call for the submission of extended abstracts for AutoCarto 2020. The conference will take place on the Esri campus in Redlands, CA, May 20–22, 2020. Workshops will take place on Tuesday, May 19.

The deadline to submit extended abstracts, January 10, 2020, is fast approaching! See https://cartogis.org/autocarto/call-for-submissions/ for details. A call for posters will be announced at a later date.

The theme of AutoCarto 2020 is WhereNext. We welcome submissions of extended abstracts for research presentations and workshop proposals with a topical or technical emphasis related to WhereNext. We are not only looking at where we are and where to go next, but we challenge the ideas of where and next in terms of meaning, communication, visualization, and reasoning in the new age of automation, robotic revolution, and artificial intelligence (AI).

Cartography and Geographic Information Science (the journal of CaGIS) will publish a special issue following the conference. Authors who would like to submit a full manuscript to the CaGIS journal can indicate their interest in their extended abstract. The conference program committee will consider all submissions and select for publication those abstracts most likely to be accepted as manuscripts for the journal. Due dates for the full manuscripts will be announced after the conference.

Keynote speakers announced

AutoCarto 2020 will feature daily vision plenaries. Keynote speakers include Deirdre Dalpiaz Bishop (U.S. Census Bureau), Laura Bliss (CityLab), and Bernhard Jenny (Monash University). A variety of preconference workshops will also be offered. See https://cartogis.org/autocarto/autocarto-2020/program/ for details.

Student assistantships

Student assistantships of $750 are available on a competitive basis. See details at https://cartogis.org/autocarto/student-assistantships/.
