The 2nd Schematic Mapping Workshop will be held April 11–12, 2019 at TU Wien, Vienna, Austria after its successful first edition in 2014 at the University of Essex, UK. The workshop is organized by the Algorithms and Complexity Group at the Institute for Logic and Computation at TU Wien, under the baton of Martin Nöllenburg. The workshop brings together researchers and practitioners working on various aspects of schematic maps, including cartographers, computer scientists, graphic designers, psychologists, and transport professionals. The workshop is supported by the Research group Cartography at the Department for Geodesy and Geoinformation, Wiener Linien and the Vienna Center for Logic and Algorithms at TU Wien.

The two-day workshop program will feature presentations of contributed original research papers as well as a number of invited position papers surveying the state of the art on various aspects of schematic mapping. We will further host an exhibition of posters summarizing ongoing research projects as well as new designs of schematic maps.

The detailed program will be announced in the Spring of 2019.
