Call for paper: Session on Toponymy at the 28th International Cartographic Conference

The official call for papers for the 28th International Cartographic Conference (ICC) is now open. Researchers working within the areas of cartography and geography are invited to submit abstracts for formal posters or papers. A collection of refereed conference papers will be published in a Springer book. Selected papers will also be invited for submission to one of the official ICA journals: The International Journal of Cartography, Cartography and Geographic Information Science, Cartographica, and The Cartographic Journal.

Among the many themes scheduled, submissions for a session on Toponymy (T31) are also being solicited. The topics to be dealt with in T31 are “place names as cultural heritage”, “place-name conflicts”, and “toponymic field work and documentation”. The deadline for abstract submission is the 26th of October 2016.

The ICC will be held in Washington, D.C. from the 2nd to the 7th of July 2017.
