Deadline for submissions: 1 November 2019
Notification of acceptance: 30 November 2019
Participants are invited to submit abstracts of up to 400 words for international peer review. They should be written in English and provided as a Word file using this template. A brief biographical note (max. 100 words) should also be provided at the end of the abstract. Each author, either as sole author or co-author, may only submit one paper proposal; each paper must be an original contribution that has not been published or presented before.
A selection of high-quality submissions will be accepted for oral presentation at the symposium. We ask all authors to indicate whether they would prefer a long (25 min) or short (10 min) presentation, but final decision regarding the presentation slots will rest with the organisers.
When submitting authors are also asked to indicate their interest to submit a full paper after the conference. These papers will pass through an additional reviewing process. As with previous symposia, the proceedings of the Istanbul Symposium will be published by Springer in the ICA series “History of Cartography”. Due to a restriction on the total number of pages, there is a possibility that not all papers submitted will be published. The decision as to which papers will be published will rest with the editors whose decision will be final.
