Dear list,

FOSDEM is a free and non-commercial event bringing together about 8000
developers in Brussels, Belgium. The next edition will take place on 1 & 2
February 2020 and provide open source software developers, endusers and
communities a place to share minds, tech and beer. Participation is free of
charge, although donations are welcome.

Sunday 2 Feb 2019 from 9.00-17.00, the Geospatial Devroom offers – for the
6th consecutive time - a podium for everything open geospatial technology
and information related.

Geospatial technologies and mapping used to be specialists work, but
nowadays location intelligence is becoming part of many
industries/products/projects/applications, which often use only a small
subset of the possibilities the data and software have to offer.

The Geospatial Devroom is the right place to talk about open geospatial
topics related to data, software and community. This includes standards,
usage and tools, e.g. for (temporal-)spatial databases, and online mapping,
temporal-spatial analysis, geospatial services, used for collection,
storage, processing, delivery, analysis, and visualizing purposes.

We welcome submissions (projects, demo's, use cases, code wizardry, etc) :

   1. Web and desktop GIS applications;
   2. Interoperable geospatial web services and specifications;
   3. Collection of data using sensors / UAVs / satellites;
   4. Geo-analytic algorithms & libraries;
   5. Spatial extensions for classical databases (indexes, operations) and
   dedicated databases;
   6. Big Geospatial Data processing, distributed and scalable in the Cloud;
   7. Geospatial intelligence for Smart Cities, IoT and Automotive;
   8. Volunteered & Crowdsourced data examples with e.g. OpenStreetMap
   9. .... or something geospatial we did not think of !


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:  https://penta.fosdem.org/submission/FOSDEM20

Make sure to select the 'Geospatial devroom' as 'Track'. If you have an

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 DEADLINE for submissions is Sunday, 1st December 2019, 23.59 PM.
