«It has now been decided to organize the International Cartographic Conference (ICC) 2021 in Florence [Firenze] as a hybrid event 14-18 December 2021. I nevertheless warmly recommed you to visit this wonderful city. Abstracts for papers are due by 15 January and 26 March 2021, respectively. Please visit the conference website for detailed information and abstract submission (https://www.icc2021.net/).
At ICC Tokyo 2019 our Commission had three sessions with in total 11 papers. It would be great to arrive at a similar contribution to ICC Florence. Our sessions are open for all kinds of toponymic papers, but papers with a cartographic orientation would be most welcome, e.g. on topics like
- name placement on maps
- choice between endonym and exonym
- script conversion
- contents and structure of gazetteers and toponymic data files
- place-name standardization
- harmonization of place names across borders
