Organized for the second time, the International Society of Participatory
Mapping (ISPM) conference brings together scholars, planners and
practitioners working with participatory mapping and spatial participatory
methods. Hosted by Aalto University in Finland, the 2019 conference
provides a platform for presenting recent advances within the field of
participatory mapping and initiating discussion on the current state and
future directions of the research.
Rapidly increasing applications of participatory mapping methods within and
beyond academia challenge the community to enhance transdisciplinary
collaboration and to advance the circulation of good practice. With the
theme “Let the people map”, the ISPM 2019 conference invites us to approach
these questions with a special focus on novel ways of facilitating dialog
between participatory mapping researchers and practitioners.
The Keynote speakers and panel discussions will be recorded and streamed
live during the event. You can find out more information at the ISPM C
