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