Types of submission and publication

ICC 2019 welcome two types of submission: full paper and abstract only. All submissions are single-blind peer reviewed. Full papers have a length of 8 pages; abstracts have a length of 1-2 pages.

Full paper submission is a submission to Advances of the ICA. A few selected papers will be published on International Journal of Cartography. Abstract only submission is a submission to Proceedings of the ICA or Abstracts of the ICA.

All submissions have to be handed in the required ICA format by using a provided ICA template and saved as PDF. Please Download ICA template and guidelines for authors (described in the template file) below.


All accepted manuscripts of ICC 2019 are published on either of the new ICA's three official online publication outlets:

  1. Advances in Cartography and GIScience of the International Cartographic Association
    (short: Advances of the ICA, eISSN 2570-2084)
    ‐ single-blind peer review based on submitted full papers
  2. Proceedings of the International Cartographic Association
    (short: Proceedings of the ICA, eISSN 2570-2092)
    ‐ single-blind peer review based on submitted abstracts, developed to a full paper
  3. Abstracts of the International Cartographic Association
    (short: Abstracts of the ICA, eISSN 2570-2106)
    ‐ single-blind peer review based on submitted abstracts. publication of abstract only

After the review, the review results are communicated to the authors, who prepare the final manuscript. Upon acceptance, the full papers for Advances of the ICA have to be revised according to the reviewers' comments. Authors who submit only abstract choose either Proceedings of the ICA or Abstracts of the ICA for the final manuscript publication. The abstracts for Proceedings of the ICA have to be extended to full papers of 8 pages length by using the ICA full paper template, also taking the reviewers' comments into account. Good quality papers rejected for publication in Advances of the ICA are considered for inclusion in Proceedings of the ICA.

Note that a subset of full papers will be selected for a special issue of the International Journal of Cartography.
