The first formal Neocartography Commission session is set to start directly after the Society of Cartographers conference, and will be held from 3-45pm to 7-15pm at UCL (in London) on Wednesday 5th September. The themes have been chosen to meet the commission’s aims – with speakers asked to think broadly, and be interesting.
