There have been discussions about a GRASS presentation at FOSDEM, but I'm just too overloaded to take the lead on this. I'm willing to help though.

Anyone else planning on coming to Brussels ?

Topics that have been suggested in previous discussions:

- testing framework
- raster compression performance, including null file compression
- easy/automatic GUI programming through declarative programming

If someone can prepare slides I am willing to present them, but as I said, I cannot take the lead on this. So, if someone is willing to do that part of the work, but cannot be present at FOSDEM, just go ahead an submit a proposal.

Moritz

Hi all,

This is a gentle reminder for the call for participation for the
geospatial devroom at FOSDEM.
For those of you who don't know FOSDEM, it is one of the biggest open
source conferences, and a highly developer oriented one. Next to the
geospatial devroom there will be lots of other talks in the main
tracks and devrooms [1].
I'm sure it is also interesting for everyone active in OSGeo - so go
ahead and submit :-)

Hope to see many of you in Brussels
Johan

Call for Presentations

Please forward!


FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event bringing together about 5000
developers in Brussels, Belgium. The goal is to provide open source software
developers and communities a place to meet and share thoughts. The
participation is free of charge, although donations are welcome. The next
edition will take place on 4 - 5 February 2017. For the third (!) time there
will be a Geospatial devroom and will be happening on Sunday 5/2/2017!

Geospatial technologies and mapping used to be specialist work, but nowadays
location and maps are becoming part of many projects/applications, which
usually use only a small subset of the possibilities the data and software
offer.

The geospatial devroom is the place to talk about open, geo-related data and
software and their ecosystem. This includes standards and tools, e.g. for
spatial databases, and online mapping, geospatial services, used for
collecting, storing, delivering, analysing, and visualizing purposes.

We welcome submissions about:

Web and desktop GIS applications;

Collaborative editing / versioning of geodata and metadata;

Interoperable geospatial web services and specifications;

Collection of data using sensors / UAVs / satellites;

Geo-analytic algorithms / libraries;

Geospatial extensions for classical databases (indexes, operations) and
dedicated databases;

Big geodata, scalable GIS applications;

Volunteered Geographic information - Crowdsourced geodata.


HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR PROPOSAL FOR A TALK


Are you thrilled to present your work to other open source developers? Would
you like to run a discussion? Any other ideas?

Please submit your proposal at:

 https://fosdem.org/submit

Make sure to select the 'Geospatial devroom' as 'Track'. If you have an
account from previous years, you should be using the same.

Please specify in the notes if you prefer for your presentation either a
short timeslot (lightning talks ~10 minutes) or a long timeslot (20 minutes
presentation + discussion). However, note that time slots are indicative and
will be assigned according to the timing of the session.


The DEADLINE for submissions is Thursday **1st December 2016**.

Notification of acceptance will be sent to the Authors by 11/12/2016 at the
latest.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with
the organisers of the devroom at fosdem-geospatial at gisky.be!
