Call for Abstracts / Abstract Submission

Because of the new dates for the conference, we reopened the call for abstracts. All abstracts that we already received will remain on the shortlist (authors that wish to withdraw their contributions are asked to send a short message).

Atlases in Time – National and Regional Issues

On the occasion of 150 year anniversary celebration of the National Geographic Institute of Spain (IGN) – the publishing institution of the National Atlas of Spain – the ICA Commission on Atlases and the ICA/IGU Commission on Toponymy together with the IGN and the Spanish Society of Cartography, Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (SECFT) organize a symposium on National and Regional Atlases from the 21nd to the 24th April 2021 in Madrid. During three sessions questions concerning evolving dissemination concepts and techniques for atlases, recent development and examples of National Atlases as well as important toponomastic issues in atlas productions will be discussed.

Presentations will be held in a classic 20 min format of 15 min talk and 5 min discussions, and also in a 5 min lightning format, where you can bring in specific challenges (not solved yet) or new ideas. A publication of the contributions as papers or abstracts will be realized.
