The Society of Cartographers 50th Anniversary Summer School of Cartography will be held in the School of Geographical & Earth Sciences, University of Glasgow where the Society was founded in 1964. We look forward to welcoming you to Glasgow between 31 August - 2 September 2014 and to having a bumper attendance on this special year. The annual summer school/conference is a great opportunity to keep up-to-date with current issues in Cartography & Map Design and to network with fellow map-makers or to meet old and new friends celebrating our 50th Anniversary.

The Summer School is open to members and non-members, so don't miss out on your first attendance at this event or if you are returning having enjoyed our previous events. A number of Bursaries to cover half attendance costs will be available to student / overseas members and also to ordinary members attending the Summer School for the first time . There's a full and fascinating formal programme plus lots of informal opportunities to share your enthusiasm for maps and mapping.

A special display of Society archive material and photographs will be put together for the first time to celebrate this special event. Already a number of long-standing members, including some former Society Chairmen have confirmed their intention to attend. The 50th Anniversary Dinner will be held at the Oran Mor, a converted church and now a popular and thriving arts & entertainment venue in the heart of Glasgow's West End.
