Invitation and Call for Contributions

The ICA Commissions on Atlases and on Education and Training are happy to announce and invite you to a joint meeting and workshop.
Atlas cartography and educational cartography are undergoing a renewal process, due to technology-driven forces and altered user demands. The goal of this meeting is to present and talk about new ideas and concepts in both fields of atlas and education cartography.

Meeting program
The first day of the meeting will be dedicated to keynotes and state-of-the-art contributions.
We are proud to announce Ferjan Ormeling (Prof. emer.) as invited speaker; he has sound knowledge in both atlases and educational cartography.During the second day, we plan to present and discuss future atlas and educational concepts.
