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 the current situation in Ukraine

To show our support for Ukraine, all fees for papers from authors (first or corresponding authors) affiliated to Ukrainian institutions are automatically waived, regardless if these papers are co-authored by scientists affiliated to Russian and/or Belarusian institutions. The only exception will be if the corresponding author or first contact (contractual partner of Copernicus) are from a Russian and/or Belarusian institution, in that case the APCs are not waived.

In accordance with current European restrictions, Copernicus Publications does not step into business relations with and issue APC-invoices (articles processing charges) to Russian and Belarusian institutions. The peer-review process and scientific exchange of our journals including preprint posting is not affected. However, these restrictions require that the first contact (contractual partner of Copernicus) has an affiliation and invoice address outside Russia or Belarus.
