UK’s Leading Cartographic Societies Seek Papers for Joint “Mapping Together” Conference
Feb 16, 2015 -- The BCS - SoC Conference 2015, for all involved in the creation and use of maps, has announced its Call for Papers.
The joint conference combines The British Cartographic Society Annual Symposium with the Society of Cartographers Annual Summer School and will take place from Tuesday 8th September to Thursday 10th September 2015 at Park Inn by Radisson in York.
The programme committee is currently seeking papers for the main conference sessions and workshops during the breakout sessions. Applications should fit within the following themes:
Neocartography, 3D mapping, mapping Yorkshire, military mapping, open source projects, maps on apps, hand drawn maps, planning for change (transport, urban, Green), and what’s new.
Those interested in submitting a paper or workshop contribution are encouraged to complete the online form at www.soc.org.uk/socbcs2015. The closing date for submissions is Friday 20 March 2015. Successful applicants will be notified by 3 April 2015.
This fully integrated event, organised by GeoAware (events division of The GeoInformation Group), will combine the very best that both Societies have to offer in leading and developing a community of cartography users. It is a full, three day, educational conference and supporting exhibition that provides delegates with the opportunity to gain mapping knowledge from a wide range of presentations, interactive workshops and poster sessions.
Further information on the conference programme and how to register will be made available in due course.
