2021 International Cartographic Conference – call for papers

Florence, Italy

December 14–18, 2021

Everyone will be hoping that vaccines and other measures will allow more-or-less normal international travel by the time of the conference, and the organisers have put in place measures to ensure the safety of all delegates, but in response to the current global situation it has recently been announced that ICC2021 will be a hybrid event. This will allow either in-person or remote attendance.

The call for submission of papers is available on the ICC 2021 conference website (

Details about the type and content of expected submissions is provided on the submission web page (

All active in cartography and GIScience in your country are strongly encouraged to submit papers describing their research and/or their work.

Deadlines (recently revised) Abstracts: 20 June 2021

Submitted abstracts/papers will be subject to stringent peer review by at least two experts and carefully evaluated based on scientific originality, potential interest in the community, proper documentation of prior work, clarity of presentation, technical correctness, correct use of language. Accepted abstracts/papers will appear in one of the publications of ICA events, published in the ICA proceedings series at Copernicus. This series allows for three different formats:

1. Advances in Cartography and GIScience of the International Cartographic Association (Advances of the ICA) (single-blind peer review based on a full paper);

2. Proceedings of the International Cartographic Association (Proceedings of the ICA) (single-blind peer review based on submitted abstracts, developed to full paper);

3. Abstracts of the International Cartographic Association (short: Abstracts of the ICA) (single-blind peer review based on submitted abstracts; publication of abstract only).

Machine learning is a subfield of artificial intelligence that focuses on developing algorithms that enable machines to learn from data without being explicitly programmed. In other words, it is the process of teaching computers to learn from data and improve their performance over time.

Machine learning has become one of the most popular fields of study in recent years due to the vast amounts of data generated by businesses, organizations, and individuals every day. With the rise of big data, machine learning algorithms have become essential in many industries, including finance, healthcare, and transportation.
