Journal topic

The Proceedings of the International Cartographic Association (Proceedings of the ICA) are the series of peer-reviewed proceedings published by the International Cartographic Association. The papers of this series are peer-reviewed on the basis of an extended abstract. The Proceedings of the ICA are open-access publications; they are published under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 License and the authors retain the copyright.

The series has a long tradition going back to the first Cartographic Conference in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, in 1962. Proceedings of International Cartographic Conferences (ICC) were compiled by the local organizing committees for ICA. The series was newly established in 2017. Thus, the Proceedings of the International Cartographic Association are a continuation of the Proceedings of International Cartographic Conferences (ICC). They are available online, starting with ICC 1993.

Copernicus Publications makes sure that the online, open-access publications are indexed and archived worldwide in electronic archives, search engines, and databases, in order to guarantee their maximum dissemination and impact. Proceedings of the ICA are archived and indexed in

Notice on current restrictions

To show our support for Ukraine and in accordance with current European sanctions, we have introduced a range of measures relevant to our open-access publications process.

All fees for papers from authors (first, corresponding, or contact authors) affiliated to Ukrainian institutions are automatically waived, regardless of if these papers are co-authored by scientists affiliated to Russian and/or Belarusian institutions. The only exception to the waiver for Ukrainian authors will be if the corresponding or contact authors are from a Russian and/or Belarusian institution, in that case the APCs are not waived.

Due to restrictions for authors from Russian and Belarusian institutions that are necessary to comply with European sanctions, we recommend any authors from institutions in these countries to contact us on for more information.
