 Dear Marco,
I thank you very much for your information. I am preparing the abstract and will be submitted soon. As you know that I am going to finish my MSc in Disaster Management at the PGIS, University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. I did a 3D model to find the inundation areas and did a flood risk assessment for my final thesis which has been used the OSM exposure data for the analysis and prepared hazard map,Vulnerability Map and Risk Map.  
Best Regards,S.Suthakaran

 Dear all,

in addition (and in parallel) to the standard sessions, this year State of the Map will run an Academic Track session to showcase the great importance OpenStreetMap has gained within the scientific and academic communities. The Academic Track aims to bring together and foster interactions between OpenStreetMap contributors and scientific researchers from all over the world. Consequently this will demonstrate both the potential and maturity of scientific investigations based on OpenStreetMap to the whole community and stimulate a beneficial discussion among the attendees. Contributions are expected to address any scientific aspect related to OpenStreetMap, in particular, but not limited, to the following:

   - quality of OpenStreetMap data
   - analysis of contribution patterns in OpenStreetMap
   - exploitation of OpenStreetMap data to generate new scientifically valuable datasets
   - integration of OpenStreetMap data with other datasets to generate new scientifically valuable datasets
   - scientific applications of OpenStreetMap
   - new approaches to facilitate or improve data collection in OpenStreetMap (e.g. through gamification or Citizen Science approaches)
   - literature reviews on specific aspects of OpenStreetMap
   - creating better connections and collaborations between the scientific community and the OpenStreetMap community
   - open research problems in OpenStreetMap and challenges for the scientific community
Authors are invited to submit abstracts using this form. Deadline for submission is March 4, 2018.

The maximum length of the abstract is 2500 characters. Abstracts must be scientifically rigorous and structured as follows: introduction/background, where the problem addressed is introduced; main aim or purpose of the study; brief description of the methodology and findings achieved; final discussion highlighting the scientific contribution of the study and its practical benefits/implications. Abstracts describing the use, analysis and processing of OpenStreetMap data for new and unconventional applications/disciplines are particularly encouraged.

Abstracts will be evaluated by the Scientific Committee. Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to give an oral presentation during the Academic Track sessions at the conference. In addition, authors of selected abstracts will be invited to submit a full paper for the Special Issue Open Source Geospatial Software of the journal Open Geospatial Data, Software and Standards.

from 28th to 30th July 2018 the OpenStreetMap community will be coming
together for our annual State of the Map conference, this year in Milan,
Italy. It is set to be an exciting three day event where mappers,
programmers, practitioners, entrepreneurs, and policy makers will share
their passion for OpenStreetMap.

We invite you to submit your session proposals for the 2018 State of the
Map, by Sunday, 18th February 2018:

https://docs.google.com/forms/ d/e/1FAIpQLScM9lUg8Z- qUpqcOcWzD1MpV708PPIl82hgdAREC z1D_7sMbA/viewform

You are encouraged to submit proposals for 20 minute talks, 5 minute
lightning talks, and 75 minute workshops that will result in progress
and excitement in the world of OpenStreetMap. If you require a grant or
scholarship to attend, please note that you will have to complete an
additional form which we will publish in the next few weeks. Again, the
deadline to submit your session proposals is Sunday, 18th February 2018.

This year, we are particularly keen to see applications from good
quality workshops (please apply for a grant or scholarship if it will
help you).

Best regards,
