New section:

  • Geoinformation and cartographic support for ocean research

Section Description: within the framework of the UN program “Decade of Ocean Sciences
for Sustainable Development (2021-2030)” researchers studying the largest natural object on
Earth, the World Ocean and its parts are invited to present at the conference. Topics for this
session include: detailed bathymetry maps, spatial and temporal distribution of physical,
chemical, biological, geological and geophysical characteristics of waters and sediment
layers. In addition, we are accepting reports for participation in the section devoted to
modern methods of ocean study: numerical modeling, remote sensing methods, as well as
expeditionary research.

Workshops and round tables:
Conference Organizing Committee invites applications for organizing the workshop and round
tables within the thematic scope of InterCarto. InterGIS 27. They can provide a platform for
discussion of a limited number of participants (no more than 25 people from the experts and
specialists) in order to present and discuss the latest research results from scientific projects on the
topic of the conference as well as knowledge exchange and creating of new partnerships and
collaborations. Proposals for round tables and workshops with the preliminary number of
participants should be sent to the Organizing Committee by 01.05.2021 by e-mail at
