    07.04.11 — Transportation Center What are maps for? How should they look like? Whom do they serve? What do they defend? These and other similar controversial topics will be brought into the spotlight in the next Latsis EPFL Symposium 2011, organised by the Choros Laboratory, one of our TraCE members, on the hot topic of Mapping Ethics. This symposium, which will be held in April 14-15th, will explore new trends in Cartography and Social Responsability, and will count with distinguished keynote speakers such as Bruno Latour, Carlo Ratti, Michel Lussault and Hervé Le Bras.  The goal of this symposium is to gather original and inspiring contributions that allow for open-minded public lectures with cartographic outsiders and lively debates with informed speakers through in-depth panel discussions. Matters of debate include: are the co-productive processes of map-making erasing individual responsibilities ? Are self-organized collections of geographic data still maps? What are the relationships between citizens and stakeholders through the cartographic medium? How do maps as hybrid iconic, semiotic and symbolic systems bear the clarification of values ? Such are some of the lively topics this symposium will deal with. Read the whole article
