* Core development of geospatial software
* Open data access and crisis management
* Usage of Open Source Software, case studies

Presentations will either fill 30-minute slots with time for questions
or 5-minute lightning talks. Proposals can be submitted online at

Workshops are 1.5-3 hour hands-on experiences with participants
following along with the instructor, working directly with the
application under discussion. All workshop rooms will be equipped a
projector, and with computers for participants to use.

Instructors will need to discuss pre-installation requirements with
the Conference Organizing Committee if required.
Workshops are expected to require considerable effort to create, with
past experience showing that three days of preparation per hour of
presentation are required to produce a high quality workshop.

Additionally you will be expected to develop material for attendees to
take home with them, such as handouts, workbook, CD-ROMs, etc. Due to
the effort involved in producing and presenting a workshop,
instructors will receive a single complimentary registration to the
conference for delivering a workshop.

presenter and needs to be described in the tutorial description.

All submissions will be considered, but particular interest will be
shown in the following topics:

* Practical Introductions to FOSS4G software
* Interoperability / Spatial Data Infrastructure, INSPIRE
* Integration between open and closed source solutions
