The Conference is the major international scholarly conference dedicated to advancing knowledge of the history of cartography, of maps and mapmaking, broadly defined. The conference promotes global cooperation and collaboration among scholars (from any academic discipline), curators, collectors, dealers and institutions through illustrated talks, poster presentations, exhibitions, and a social programme. Educational and cultural institutions have supported each conference.

The first aim of the conference is to foster discussion on the history of cartography in general, not necessarily the history of single maps. The presentations should be focused on the history of cartography and only deal with historical geography or the history of discoveries on the margins. Contributions on a topic from specialists in disciplines such as geodesy, tourism studies, linguistics, history of science, art history, etc., are very welcome.

The conference venue will be the Conference Centre of the recently renovated UniS-Building of the University in Berne, which is well equipped with modern presentation facilities. The dates are 8-13 July 2007 and the conference themes will be:
Mapping Relief
Maps and Tourism
Language and Maps
Time as the Cartographic Fourth Dimension
Any other aspect of the history of cartography
