WELCOME TO THE 36th IMCOS-SYMPOSIUM-MANILA 2018 SITE
The 36th International IMCOS Symposium 2018 will be held in Manila, from Sunday October 14th to Wednesday October 17th with an option to include an extension to Hong Kong from Friday 19th to Saturday 20th, using Thursday 18th as the travel day.
The organizers, i.e. Rudolf J. H. Lietz as IMCOS Representative for the Philippines, and curator of the Gallery of Prints, supported by PHIMCOS, The Philippine Map Collectors Society, are now ready to accept your preliminary reservations. Our Organizing Committee has laid the basic groundwork for a successful Symposium, as shown on the following pages. The traditional concept of pre- and post-Symposium Tours, Sunday registration, morning-lectures and afternoon visits to Map Collections is preserved. Our Main Theme emphasizes the importance of Map Lovers and their “addiction” to Collecting Maps, touching not only Art but also History, Geography and Natural Sciences. Please enjoy Filipino traditional culture and hospitality during your stay in the Philippines.
