Hi all,

for everybody attending next weeks EGU General Assembly (https://www.egu23.eu/) 
in Vienna, I would like to point out and invite you to the annual OSGeo 
Townhall on Tuesday evening 19:00 hours.  A big thanks to Alessandro Frigeri 
for organising this. Please share the news:

OSGeo and Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for Earth and Planetary 
Details: https://meetingorganizer.copernicus.org/EGU23/sessionprogramme/4917

OSGeo event announcement:

Highlight: The chief data officer of NASA is among the presenters and will 
present aspects of the NASA  TOPS programme (Transform to Open Science).

The paradigm of Open Science is based on the tiers of Open Access, Open Data, 
and Free Open Source Software (FOSS). However, the interconnections between the 
tiers remain to be improved. This is a critical factor in enabling Open Science 
as a context where researchers, especially the younger ones, can express their 
potential thanks to a scientifically healthy practice.

This townhall meeting focuses on discussing best practices not only on using 
Free Open Source for geospatial but its developments and support, and how extra 
efforts required to publish not only the results can be recognized as part of 
the work of a scientist.

At this townhall, we will touchdown on the most up-to-date topics related to 
Free Open-Source for Geospatial software and Open Science practices.

Alessandro Frigeri from Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica of Italy (INAF) will 
introduce the session and briefly overview the latest developments of FOSS 
tools interoperable with geospatial data coming from missions from Mars, the 
Moon, and other bodies of the Solar System.

Kevin Murphy (NASA HQ, Washington) will present the Transform to Open Science 
(TOPS) initiative aimed at transforming agencies, organizations, and 
communities to an inclusive culture of open science.

Peter Loewe will report how Persistent Identifiers (PID) like Digital Object 
Identifiers can be used to improve indexing not only our scientific papers but 
also software projects and geospatial data.

Libations will be available.

Kind regards & maybe see you on Tuesday,
