Call for full paper submission

The conference will provide a forum for the presentation of scientific papers illustrating the efforts of the research community, professional papers describing the cutting-edge methods employed by mapping organisations, meetings of the ICA Commissions and Working Groups,  furthering their international collaborative efforts to advance knowledge and techniques in cartography, map exhibitions and the chance to  meet again with colleagues and friends.

We want to forcefully encourage all abstract authors to soon upload a full paper for the conference proceedings.
The deadline for an upload will be the 15th of April, 2013.
