Call for abstracts and papers
The International Cartographic Association (ICA) invites you to share your research, practice and experiences in cartography and GIScience at the 31st International Cartographic Conference (ICC 2023), to be held from 13 to 18 August 2023 in Cape Town, South Africa.
Submissions of abstracts (1-2 pages) and full papers (8 pages) in English are accepted, following the respective ICA templates. Abstracts and full papers will be peer reviewed by a minimum of two experts in the field against the following criteria: scientific originality, potential interest to the community, proper documentation of prior work, clarity of presentation, technical correctness and correct use of language. Authors of accepted abstracts and papers will be invited to present their work in English at the ICC 2023, either as oral presentation or as poster.
The presenting author must register for the conference. Accompanying persons, who are registered for the conference, will receive one complementary entry to one technical session of their choice, such as to support a speaker when delivering their presentation.

ICC 2023 publications follow the ICA publication regulations. Accepted abstracts and papers that have been revised to address reviewer comments will be published in one of the ICA publications: Abstracts of the ICA, Proceedings of the ICA, Advances of the ICA or International Journal of Cartography. Authors of accepted abstracts have the option to expand their abstract into a full paper of 8 pages for publication in the Proceedings of the ICA. If they opt not to do this, their abstract will be published in the Abstracts of the ICA.
Full papers are accepted for publication in the Proceedings of the ICA or in the Advances of the ICA. Selected papers accepted for the Advances will be invited to submit their papers to the International Journal of Cartography, for inclusion in a special issue.
On submission, authors will be able to indicate whether they would like their abstracts and papers to be considered for a special issue in one of the ICA’s three affiliated journals – Cartographica, Cartography and Geographic Information Science (CAGIS) and The Cartographic Journal. Following the submission of revisions, editors of the affiliated journals will invite authors of selected abstracts and papers with the potential to be developed into a full journal paper to submit a substantially revised and/or expanded paper to a special issue in their journal, to be published in 2024.
