Programme for ISCEM meeting in Leiden

Saturday 13 July 2019

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).

This meeting will take place on the Saturday prior to the ICHC conference (July 13th 2019).

When registration for ICHC opens in November 2018, it will also be possible to register for the ISCEM meeting.

The general outline (subject to change) of this day will be:

11:00 Gathering at Leiden Centraal train station and a short guided city walk to the library (optional)

12:00 Lunch

13:00 ISCEM meeting, including a pop-up exhibition of some top pieces from the map collections of Leiden University Libraries.

16:00 End of the official programme, optional drinks and dinner together

Co-hosts: Martijn Storms, map curator at Leiden University Libraries, and Ed Dahl (ISCEM)
