The changing landscape of digital mapping technology continues to open up new frontiers for exploring, manipulating, and presenting medieval maps.  From using multi-spectral imaging to resurrect faded charts to building interactive tools to advance mappamundi literacy in the classroom, medievalists are more and more embracing digital tools and approaches to provide depth and access to their scholarship.  To further this work, Cornell University is pleased to announce an unorthodox conference:  a weekend of papers, workshops and collaboration.  We hope to provoke inspiration and collaboration among medievalists working with digital mapping, and to offer a space for scholars to grow their skills.  This conference will provide a multi-modular venue, combining traditional paper presentations with platform workshops and poster exhibits. It will also include dedicated spaces for active co-working, supported by Cornell University librarians and Cornell’s Digital CoLab.
