Hi all,

One of the topics of the OSGeo-ICA MoU is that we work to establish a framework for publications for the academic track of FOSS4G conferences. The key aim is to put in place a framework for publications for the academic track (one option might be special issues in reputable GIS journals like IJGIS, TGIS etc).

Barend Köbben, (ITC - University of Twente) has kindly agreed to start working on this but we need to bring together a core group of people who can help with this effort. If you are interested please contact Barend (cc in). Also please let me know who is the key contact in OSGeo Board for this.

For a start,  it will be really good to know what efforts have been done in previous years for the FOSS4G academic track publication and what suggestions/ideas you all have, so that we can work to produce a proper template incorporating all this. It will be good if you can let us know your thoughts/ideas before 15th  Nov and i can then also discuss and plan this during the ICA Commission Chairs meeting planned in Vienna.

Best wishes,
