The 29th International Cartographic Conference (ICC 2019) of the International Cartographic Association (ICA) invites all interested participants from across the globe to submit papers or abstracts and present the latest scientific developments. Join and share the latest innovations and developments in mapping techniques, technological advancements, and current research in cartography and GIScience. Conference themes and topics are listed, but not limited to, below. The event is a unique experience to exchange ideas and encourage collaboration with colleagues from academia, government and industry.

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:
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.
