Next Generation Cartographers: A cartographic colloquium

20.09.2022 - Vienna

Visit the Next Generation Cartographers’ website »

There is no strict limit on who we perceive as a young cartographer. If you perceive yourself as a next generation cartographer, you are welcome to join us!


Are you working on your thesis, dissertation or another research project? Or did you just finish something you would like to share? The workshop for next generation cartographers tries to provide a safe space for young scientist to share their work and connect with fellows. To participate, you don’t need to be a “traditional cartographer”. If you are working with spatial data, then you are in the right place. The focus of the workshop is on discussions and knowledge exchange between young academics.

Time and Location

Social Event

Directly after the workshop, the official conference dinner will take place at Zwölf-Apostel-Keller, Sonnenfelsgasse 3, 1010 Wien. We offer to jointly go to the dinner location and hope to continue our conversations there in an even less formal setting. We will have a reserved table for all workshop participants.

Workshop output

Beyond the discussions and exchange throughout the workshop, we would like to document the workshop and the perspectives of “next generation cartographers”. We, therefore, plan to work on a joint publication after the workshop. Everyone is welcome to join us in this endeavour.


The workshop is part of EuroCarto, therefore, free for all conference participants. If you are a local student, and you can only participate in the workshop, please get in touch.
