The International Society of Curators of Early Maps and the Leiden University Libraries are happy to welcome you at the ISCEM meeting 2019 in Leiden. The meeting is organized in collaboration with the Map & Geo-Information Curators group (MAGIC).

The ISCEM meeting aims at facilitating a meeting for all map curators to get to know each other at the beginning of the week. Other ICHC participants are also welcome, but map curators will have priority if needed (the maximum capacity of the venue is 70 persons).
