On behalf of the International Society for the History of the Map and the Osher Map Library and Smith Center for Cartographic Education at the University of Southern Maine, I invite you to the next ISHM annual symposium, 21–23 June 2018. We welcome any contribution in the history of maps and mapping, although preference will be shown to papers, posters, or sessions that address two out of the symposium's three keywords. More information is available in the Call for Papers.

The program will include the annual general meeting for ISHM on 22 June 2018.

Portland, Maine

Portland has a vibrant restaurant and micro-brew scene. The working waterfront makes it a destination city for seafood lovers. The art scene is thriving. And it is an eminently walkable city. It is easily accessible by air (Portland International Jetport, PWM) and by rail (Amtrak Downeaster from Boston North Station).

Wharf St., Portland

All meetings will be held in the facilities of the Osher Map Library on the Portland campus of the University of Southern Maine.

Just a reminder: Portland, Maine (airport code PWM) should not be confused with Portland, Oregon (airport code POR). POR is a beautful city, but it's an entire continent removed from the real Portland!
