Dear colleagues,

The Open Source Geospatial Research and Education Symposium (OGRS) is a
meeting dedicated to exchanging ideas on development and use of open source
geospatial software in both research and education.

Motivated by the inaugural symposium in Nantes, France, OGRS2012 will be
held from October 24 - 26, 2012 in Yverdon-les-Bains, Switzerland. The
symposium is hosted and organized by the School of Business and Engineering
Vaud (HEIG-VD), in partnership with EPFL Lausanne, University of Lausanne,
University of Geneva, which are all academic institutions in Western
Switzerland, and the Institute for Research on Urban Sciences and Techniques
in France.

The main goals are:
- to build a panel of new scientific research and education practices using
and contributing to open source initiatives in the geospatial fields;
- to discuss a framework and highlight a rationale about geospatial open
source technology usage in research and education activities;
- to provide an innovation platform to network and develop ideas for future
collaborative work between academia - from research to education - and other
actors of the field (associations, foundations, local authorities, industry

For more details, visit the overview page on the website.
