The Dresden University of Technology together with the ICA Commissions listed above have the pleasure to invite all interested colleagues to participate in this Joint Symposium. The main aim of the symposium – as expressed by the title – is to give an opportunity to the members of the four Commissions (and participants in general) to share and learn about the results of latest and most representative research developed in the topics covered by our Commissions during the last years.

This will be a one-day programme divided into four sessions, each of them dedicated to a participating Commission. Organizer commissions welcome paper submissions to be presented at any of the four planned thematic sessions. All submitted papers will be published in the CD Proceedings of this event. Due to the shortage of time, only four papers will be presented in each session. The selection of papers to be presented orally will be made by the corresponding Chairperson of the participant Commission. The authors (presenters) will be notified separately. It is an important ondition that only those papers will be accepted which will not be orally presented or will only be presented as posters in the 26 th International Cartographic Conference in Dresden.

Deadline for the submission of full papers: April 26

Notification of authors: May 15
