Hello everyone,

i am pleased to announce the Call for Presentations for the SOTM-EU 2014 
in June next year.  Please communicate this to anyone who might might 
be interested in presenting something at the conference.  The full text 
and links can also be found at the conference website 

Call for Presentations

Now as the cold time of the year is approaching many of you are spending 
the long and dark evenings working on some OpenStreetMap related 
projects like some tool, some mapping project or some creative use of 
the OpenStreetMap data. Maybe you think it would be nice to share your 
work with a larger European community next summer? Then we invite you 
to submit a presentation to the State of the Map Europe (SOTM-EU) 
conference in Karlsruhe, Germany in June next year.
Where and when

The SOTM-EU 2014 will take place in Karlsruhe from June 13-15, 2014. The 
conference will be hosted at Hochschule Karlsruhe. On Friday and 
Saturday there will be talks, and Sunday will be a hack day for 
practical work and discussion.
Your presentation

We would like SOTM-EU to be a platform for OpenStreetMap communities 
from across Europe, as well as for geodata professionals, cartographers 
and researchers, for sharing experiences, stories and knowledge around 
the OpenStreetMap project. In case

* you are developing a tool related to OpenStreetMap for mapping, data 
processing, visualization or other applications
* you have some mapping project, ideas on tagging or an innovative 
mapping technique
* you are using OpenStreetMap data in a business project
* you are doing research based on OpenStreetMap data
* you are working on something else related to OpenStreetMap or that 
will be of interest for the community

we invite you to submit a presentation proposal to the SOTM-EU programme 
committee. Are you involved with a local project anywhere in Europe? 
SOTM-EU is a great opportunity to present it to a Europe-wide audience. 
Regular talks will be 20 minutes long with five minutes for discussion. 
In addition we will offer the opportunity for shorter five minute 
lightning talks. You can submit both types of presentation in advance 
on the website. However, for the lightning talks there will also be the 
possibility of spontaneous registration at the conference. The 
conference language is English.

Your submissions will be reviewed by a programme committee consisting of 
OpenStreetMap community members from various parts of Europe as well 
from the Hochschule Karlsruhe.
Talk submission

Talks can be submitted on the SOTM-EU web site 
(http://sotm-eu.org/en/presentations/new) where you will also find more 
information and updates on the conference. You should submit by 
February 28.

We're looking forward to seeing you in Karlsruhe in June!

On behalf of the SOTM-EU 2014 program committee,

Christoph Hormann
