Scheduled to allow for attendees to travel on to the International Cartographic Conference in Tokyo, Japan, the following week, this workshop will address a range of issues related to education in the discipline of cartography and related fields. The suggested topics include the following:
You are encouraged to consider contributing presentations on these and other relevant issues in Beijing. The intention is that there will be opportunities to deliver full oral presentations, suitable for publication, relating to research and experiences. After discussion, the submission of such presentations to the International Journal of Cartography will be advised.
A significant proportion of the programme will consist of shorter more informal contributions, including posters, to allow for effective discussion and knowledge-transfer. The scope of attendance will be international, and good practice, experiences, and advice will be communicated (the workshop language is English) in formal presentation, discussion sessions, and learning workshops.
You can submit contributions and ideas (per .doc or .pdf) here:
If you wish to be updated personally, please register your interest by informing the Commission chair, email@example.com who will also be pleased to receive expressions of interest in contributing to the workshop and developing the agenda further.
