 Dear colleagues,

Following the successful initiation of the *Academic Track* at State of the
Map 2018 in Milan [1], this Track will be included again in the program of
State of the Map 2019, to be held in Heidelberg on September 21-23, 2019.
The main purpose of the Academic Track is to bring together and foster
interactions between the OpenStreetMap community at large (contributors,
developers, users, etc.) and the academic/scientific community of
researchers from all over the world.

A designated Leading Team would be in charge on the organization of the
Academic Track, co-chaired by Marco Minghini (on behalf of the OSMF State
of the Map Working Group) and Yair Grinberger (on behalf of the Heidelberg
local team). We hereby issue a call for applications, inviting all
interested individuals to apply to join the Leading Team. This team will be
in charge of:

   - writing and publishing the call for abstracts/papers for State of the
   Map 2019
   - designing and managing the review process of the submitted abstracts,
   deciding which ones to accept for oral presentation or poster presentation
   - defining the Academic Track schedule at State of the Map 2019, by
   working in close contact with the Programme Selection Committee
   - planning and managing possible publication outputs, e.g. conference
   proceedings or a Special Issue in a scientific journal

In agreement with the OSMF State of the Map Working Group and the local
team, it was decided that the Academic Track Leading Team will be composed
by Marco and Yair plus 3 additional people that would be selected through
this open call.

Thus, we invite applications for *researchers or academics* to be part of
the Academic Track Leading Team. The call is open to everyone
interested. *Applications
shall be made exclusively by sending an e-mail to the OSM science mailing
list science at openstreetmap.org <science at openstreetmap.org>* (this requires
