Exploring Old Maps

Second International Workshop on Exploring Old Maps (EOM 2018)
University of Kent, October 25-26, 2018

Submission Procedure and Author Instructions


Authors are invited to submit short papers for presentations, posters and demonstrations.

The workshop will not have formally published proceedings. Therefore, papers submitted to EOM 2018 may report on work in progress, be submitted to other places, and they may even already have appeared or been accepted elsewhere. We particularly welcome submissions that have the potential to stimulate the collaboration between Humanities and Computer Science. The reviewing process will mainly determine whether the submitted material promises to fit into the scope of the workshop. The Program Committee will decide about the acceptance of submissions based on reviews and its mandate to create a balanced and varied program.

Encouraged topics include:

  • History of maps; surveys.
  • Digitisation, metadata, archives.
  • Topographic maps, georeferencing, &c.
  • Nontopographic maps, metro maps, &c.

Papers must be submitted via EasyChair (specifying its type in the EasyChair submission form). The submitted material must not exceed 2 pages (excluding references, which may take up a third page). All submissions must use the provided Word or LaTeX template in DIN A4; when using LaTeX, follow the example of bare_conf.tex.
