The 26th International Cartographic Conference will be held in Dresden in August 2013. This conference returns to Germany again, with ICA conferences being held previously in Germany in Frankfurt in 1962 and Cologne in 1993. The International Cartographic Conferences take place every two years. 2013 sees the conference in the "Florence of the North".
It will bring together cartographers and GI Science specialists from across the globe to Dresden for the International Cartographic Conference - ICC 2013. 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.
