Programme and Conference Presentation

ICC 2021 in Florence will represent the opportunity for reflecting on the state of the art of Cartography and related disciplines, considering the international context as well as the Italian peculiarities in the field. As in the other ICA conferences, this will be possible thanks to the presence of oral and poster presentations of papers. ICA Executive Committee, Chairs of Commissions and Workshops will be involved in realizing the final programme and reviewing the papers submitted. These will be also reviewed by referees chosen from researchers and scholars expert in the field of Cartography and related disciplines. Posters, abstracts and full papers will represent the way in which the cartographic contents and experiences will be made available to the public.

Scientific Programme and themes

We have selected a set of main themes to characterize ICC 2021 Florence under the main idea of “Cartography: planning our future from lessons from the past” that recalls the aspects in which Italy can be considered renown in the field.

- Cartography in and over the Web 2.0

- Cartography as decision support tools and to fostersustainability

- The quality of spatial data

- Cartography and Geographic Information Systems

- Cartography and Remote Sensing

- Unconventional Cartography: networks, news, media, art and participation

- Historical Cartography and History of Cartography

- Cartography and Cultural Heritage

Such themes of course are not the only ones to be proposed for the Conference. A list of themes taken from the main topics tackled in ICA’s commission and workshops follow. These will be integrated by new issues that will become evident from now to the true moment of organization of the Conference
