In July 2011, France will host the 25th Conference of the International Cartographic Association (ICA), marking the fiftieth anniversary of the first General Assembly of the Organization.

The 25th International Cartographic Conference is structured in three main segments:

- The conference proper, comprising some 500 oral presentations and many posters over five days, organized in themed sessions which reflect the twenty-eight commissions and working groups of the ICA.

- Two exhibitions of maps, one showing the most recent products from some fifty countries, and the other of children’s drawings.

- An exhibition for the presentation of the players involved in geomatics: suppliers of softwares, hardware, data bases and maps, consultancy firms, geomatic educational institutions or publishers. Involving all the major players from the cartographic and geomatic sector, the professional exhibition, to be held from 4th to 8th July, will allow the presentation of the latest technical innovations from the industry in a single venue, the Palais des Congrès in Paris. With the broadest possible attendance, this exhibition will reach an extensive French and International target public of decision makers and engineers who are keen to discover the latest operational solutions. A not-to-be missed event for both buyers and suppliers of GIS Services, geographical data and maps.

In its organization of the ICA in July 2011, on the theme of an "Enlightened view on Cartography and GIS", the French Committee of Cartography is seeking to combine thematic diversity, high-quality contributions and an up-to-date content. More than 900 submissions from 72 countries have been received by the French Committee of Cartography. Don't miss this international event!
