ICA Research Scholarships available for young authors

The International Cartographic Association (ICA) has kindly provided scholarships to support young researchers’ participation in a commission workshop/conference. LBS 2016 is one of this type of events.

If you are an author of an accepted full paper or work in progress, please consider applying for that. More details regarding the application guidelines can be found at: http://icaci.org/scholarship/.

As ICA has limited budget for the scholarships, the priority will be given to young researchers (e.g., Master and PhD students) with an accepted oral presentation, particularly those from developing countries.

Work in progress reviewing is completed

We just sent out the notifications to all corresponding authors of all the work in progress submissions – in case you didn’t get yours, please inform us at info@lbs2016.org.

Look forward to meeting you in Vienna.

Finally we managed to complete the reviewing process for the full paper submissions. We just sent out the notifications to all corresponding authors – in case you didn’t get yours, please inform us at info@lbs2016.org.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our reviewers who helped us in making the decisions. Thank you very much!

Work in Progress deadline extended to 15 July

We have extended the deadline for submission of work in progress to 15 July 2016.

Work in progress will be peer-reviewed by the organizing committee with several invited experts. If accepted, you will be invited to give an oral presentation at the conference and an extended abstract or full paper (your choice) will be published in the online proceedings of the conference (with an ISBN). Authors of selected work in progress will be also invited to submit extended versions of their work to a special issue of the Journal of LBS.

For other important dates, please refer to here. Look forward to your submission!

Full paper deadline extended to 15 June

Due to multiple requests, we decided to extend the deadline for submission of full papers to 15 June 2016 to give you two more weeks for finalizing your full papers! See all important dates here. We are looking forward to your contributions!
