Dear Colleagues,

Open Source GIS is a key theme/topic in this First All Hands Meeting of the NSF CyberGIS Project. Though, i will not be able to attend the meeting, i am keen that colleagues from ICA Commission on Open Source GIS and Open Source Geospatial Foundation submit position papers for this and attend. If you are submitting position paper for this, could you please let me know.

Best wishes,

Dear colleagues,

We are writing to announce the First All Hands Meeting (http://cybergis.cigi.uiuc.edu/node/31) of the NSF CyberGIS Project (http://www.cybergis.org) that will take place during September 28-30, 2011 in the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Position papers (guideline: http://cybergis.cigi.uiuc.edu/node/29) are solicited to address any of the following themes/topics.

  * Complex geospatial systems
  * Computationally intensive simulation of geographic dynamics
  * CyberGIS architecture and components
  * Large- and multi-scale spatial analysis and modeling
  * Data-intensive geospatial computation and visualization
  * High-performance, distributed, and/or collaborative GIS
  * Geospatial interoperability
  * Geospatial middleware, Clouds, and Grids
  * Open source GIS software
  * Participatory spatial decision support systems
  * Science drivers for, and applications of CyberGIS
  * Spatial cyberinfrastructure

Position papers will be due by August 28, 2011, and notification of acceptance will be sent by September 1, 2011. Travel support might be available to selected junior researchers and graduate students.

It is anticipated that this meeting will be fruitful in the midst of exciting time for synthesizing cyberinfrastructure and GIScience to empower geospatial innovation and discovery. Alan Blatecky (Director, NSF Office of Cyberinfrastructure) will give the keynote address.

The structure of the meeting program is as follows: the first day (September 28) will be dedicated to tutorials and hands-on training; the second day will include plenary sessions, panels, open discussions, and a tour of ORNL computation and visualization facilities; and the third day will be used for project planning meetings.

Thanks in advance for your interest, and we look forward to a very stimulating and productive meeting!

Our best,

Shaowen & Budhu
