The Abstracts of the International Cartographic Association (Abstracts of the ICA) are the conference series that publishes abstracts accepted for conferences and workshops organized by the ICA. The abstracts undergo an abstract-based review by the programme committee. The Abstracts of the ICA are open-access publications; they are published under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 License and the authors retain the copyright.
Abstracts are intended to present very early or practical work. They provide a platform for artwork, demonstrations, or work of practitioners – work that would otherwise not be very well suited for a description in an extended scientific paper. Still, the publication of the abstract is very valuable both for the authors and for the participants of the meeting. Abstracts are reviewed based on quality and innovativeness, as well as on the practical relevance.
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.
