We invite papers for a special International Cartographic Association (ICA) Commission on Map Design session at the 2012 AAG. Specifically of interest are papers that explore emerging cartographic design issues, the impact of the online and mobile revolution on cartography, geovisualization; infographics design; use of GIS as a cartographic design tool and new or reasserted methods to effectively visualize spatial information in map displays. The new ICA Commission has been established to make map design explicit in this new cartographic landscape and to focus attention on establishing effective patterns for new map makers; to encourage excellence in design as a key cartographic principle; and to bring together a wide variety of people from different disciplines to help shape cartographic design going forward.

If you are interested in participating in the work of this exciting new ICA Commission we encourage you to: 1. Register and submit your abstract online following the AAG Guidelines. 2. Email your presenter identification number (PIN), paper title, and abstract to me by September 21, 2011. I very much look forward to sharing ideas with you in New York in February.

Kenneth Field, Chair of the ICA Commission on Map Design
