        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.


    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:


    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 DEADLINEfor 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 <http://gisky.be>!
